Advertising on the internet is such a waste of money.

Do advertisers really think we are seeing any of their stupid ads? I actually get advertising blindness. Two seconds after I see a pop up I couldn't tell you anything that was on it. I actually start to daydream the second an ad comes on while searching for the X button. I never even absorb anything in the ad. The only things ads do is slow me down.

I've been waiting for someone to take both advertising and porn to the next ridiculous level.

Instead of implementing yet another "ad blocker", someone decides to implement a "porn replacer" ...

Now all of those adverts are porn.

It has a sort of "Soviet America" ring to it: in Soviet America, PORN FINDS YOU! :-)

Naturally, some people will be offended by outright luridness, so "porn" as a term will then be carried to the next level of ridiculousness: it will simply refer to anything that is extreme.

Thus within your "porn replacer" you will get your daily fix of awesome looking cars simply by ticking the "car porn" box, and similarly if you like cats, you can reach the LOLCATZ event horizon simply by ticking the "cat porn" box.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll enjoy my English tea porn ... such a lovely thing. :-)

OMG that idea makes me laugh. Loves it.

Isn't that the premise behind the "Brave" browser? I'm not sure because if you are inclined to use an alt browser, you probably don't want any ads at all.
