    Do you click on internet ads?

    I never click on internet ads, but sometimes when I get a bootylicious ad, I will take a peek. For instance, this...

    Wow that made my day too! I click on them to see where they go sometimes.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I hate them, never click on them, close them the minute they pop up, and make a point never to buy anything from companies that do that.

    but then, I have a low annoyance threshold. And as far as I can tell, they don't advertise anything I want anyway.
    I don't dream. I plan.

    Hey saginaw? So you like looking at parts in pop up ads, but why start a thread about it?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Sometimes, because I do a little bit of online shopping. IF I see a retail ad that looks interesting.

    I use a pop-up blocker, and never click on ads in pages. Now if only I could get rid of spam before it ever got to my mailbox....

    I never click on them. I hate banner ads, especially all those on- line dating ads. Those type of ads have exploded onto the scene lately and usually depict some vacuous floozy with a cheezy line such as "Bulk up that black book" and "Get your flirt on".

    You just can't get away from them. I even see them on weather sites not.

    Butt ads suck too. Shame on you Wani for clicking on them.

    You call that bootylicous?

    No....I don't click on them, and you shouldn't either. Half of them are spyware that plant tracking cookies deep in your hard drive. Use Ad-Aware 6.0 (freeware) to clean up your system.
