adverts on tv and stuff are really pissing me off, and its wasted aswell, not as if 90% of the adverts acctually sell anything... not only that, tactics used in them to make them noticable - bright colours/anoying bleeeps/annoying accents/volume of adverts being louder than the film/program ur watching.
i think theyre should be LAWS against too much advertising and adverts should be RATED like films are! but not age ratings but more annoying ratings. with digital tv etc.. now/soon hopefully filtering of adverts will be possible. and if ratings are age based *which i doubt cos all adverts are suitable for just about everyone so more ppl can watch them* i will be pretending to be a 5yr old child.
also stuff like in shops, where the escalators are in places meaning u have to walk all the way round to go up, and all the way back to get down so u dont miss any offers as u walk past - whilst this is good for a shop, and not really a good example i think some things are going toooo far.
there are some good things though - tv adverts of programs and new serieses i like, stops me missing good entertainment! also its GREAT that childrens toys are not advertised on most channels!
i would pay for having no commercial tv adverts on tv!
why did eurobell remove the tv guide channel from there cable service!? and having radio over it was great b4 it got replaced by repeating adverts which made it unwatchable for any amount of time without it muted.
i heard about a new law against unsolicited spam, when do adverts become spam?
ive been thinking about who i blame for adverts and spam - this wil be mostly sterotype and not true for everyone, but atm america seems to be winning, esp with the overhyping of the iraq war. its not as if ppl should care about for example sadams sons, pictures of there bodys were in newspapers/tv/internet but if they were americans that had done the same crimes they would have been treated alot differently and pictures of them wouldnt have been shown. and the more i hear about 11/9 the more ill think they deserved it (i dont mean the innocent peaple did, but america did)
also this overlaps with religion, which is all fiction, but as it serves a purpose (controling people, esp b4 policing) its ok, but as religion is the biggest cause of war and conflict, and that its not needed to control people now, should religion still b allowed?
aol shall have its own paragraph in this post! or 2 including this bit :/
aol sends out billions of cd's to people as spam, there is even a campain to send as many as possible to some ppl that are going to dump them at the aol hq. there tv adverts are among the most annoying aswell.
i cba to type anymore, y r there 3 childrens tv programs (ones with puppets bright colours and sweaky annoying voices!) on atm? are under 4's usually awake at this time? i hope noone over 4 is sane enuf to acctually watch them
also i dont even watch tv that much... only channels i get atm are terestrial + skyone and a few others that i never watch.
