Pop-up ads and spam are just out of spite now
    #3810308 - 02/21/05 11:52 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

What's the point? NOBODY clicks on those stupid ads. Nobobdy buys pills from an e-mail that is half numbers and half random words advertising FR*&R$&EE PI,.,.xdedLLLS!

It doesn't happen! Why do spammers even keep spamming? Why do pop-up ad makers keep doing it?

yeah there was just this thing on the news last night about advertising and shit. how there is way too much and it's hurting itself.

anyway, i can't stand it either. it's such a damn waste too.. no one fucking listens or reads any of it.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Yeah, most of them have so many intentional misspellings to avoid being filter out that I don't think anyone is going to trust a $200,000 loan from a random e-mail.


I think the only way those would work is if a blind person randomly clicked in certain places and randomly typed in their credit card number at the right time.

And the chances of that are about 1 in 38,543,028,418 that it will happen(I did some calculations). All they need to do is send out that much spam, which they do, and they'll make a few dollars.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

yea, you figure if they send out a million emails, atlest 10,000 people are stupid enough to click on them, and atleast 5000 accidently click them, so they get 1/2 a cent for every click, and eventualy they make money, if only in small amounts at a time. just about every one of those click thru advertisments makes it to where you have to have earned x amount of dollars or you get squat, so they have to do more... and more, and more... its pretty lame

I got curious and priced a Benzo script. Then i proceeded to tell them that at that rate, my doc. could die tomorrow, and I could still get the stuff off the streets cheaper than he can get it, lol.
But, as much of an asshole he is, They will not stop. Somebody is buying, they will make pop-ups as long as somebody is paying them to do so. period.

Sigh. I'm sorely dissapointed in all the people who allow spammers to make money.
