Online Advertisers Are DUMB!

While perusing the vast expanse of worthlessness that is my MySpace profile I was beaten in the head by just how stupid these advertisements are. I'm referring to two kinds of advertising; click able banner-game ads, and the phony profile ads. Let's take these two in reverse order.

Phony profile ads are just sad. Most of the time the profile doesn't even have a picture attached to it. The profile is taken down in a very short amount of time and who really clicks on that shit anyway! It takes you to a porn site sign up page--I'm one of the few who have clicked on it--which tells me nothing but how to pay for porn that I don't even get to peruse! WTF? At least let me sample the wares before you tell me to buy! Do you even have porn in there? Is this just a credit card scam operation? What a waste of your time. And I mean 'your time' as in the person who put up the site and the phony profile. What a joke. This is how you know that the stupid underbelly of American culture is still around.

Click able banner-game ads are just pathetic. Oh, look a game! I'll bet it's not one of those fake games like the others! I'll just play it and see! What I want to know is exactly how many people are dumb enough to do this? I don't just mean click and play one of the games--if it isn't one of the fakes--but to go on and pay for whatever the ad is trying to get you to fork over money for. Aside from the above mentioned phony profile people, I'm not sure there are a whole lot of those kinds of dumb people around. And the phony profile types aren't getting any money to speak of so... Well, a fool and his money are soon parted sot that means that only the first con-man gets paid and since he's probably a fool too it won't be around long. Fucking bunch of morons!

That is all

Im sensing some hostility over the whole myspace ad things. am i reading you correctly, or am i just dumb like the dorks who click on those stupid ads? sarcasm intended

the sad part is the ads must make money, atleast some, or they would have stopped by now. if no one was dumb enough to click on it, then the ad would stop. !

yes and there will always be people dumb enough to go ahead and give out their personal information.
