Thank you for your order. You're useless



  • Another fine example of an advertisement that really shouldn't be where it is.



  •  Why the hell is an e-commerce site running ads in the first place?

     "Thanks for your money... now here's an ad!"



  • I remember seeing that website that tries to guess the symptoms of something on here before where you got your sig.  Do you remember the url to that sight.

    I was thinking 100% the same. I mean: okay, for a free site with interesting content it's only natural ads are needed, but for an commercial site? I also immidiatly knew the answer: because advertisers are willing to pay for them. More income + Little extra cost => More profit

    Yeah, it's just as crazy as having ads in a supermarket or department store!

    Your supermarkets have that? must be america. In Holland it's usually only for things the store sells at a discount at the moment or for special offers (e.g. buy goods worth €15 and get a €15 discount on ticket to amusement park X), and they are quite rare and not too large. I've never seen a large banner for a charity or something like that, like that amazon thing.

    Most brick-and-morters here only advertise their own goods.



  • What a sight that site is.

  • Oh boy. I misread the last word of that ad.
