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

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 never click on those damned things.... and they never sell things I want, nor would I buy them anyways because I'm a cheap bastard! :p

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

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.
