Damn Marketing!!!

I'm getting so damn sick and tired of all these frigging marketing tricks that jam advertising down my throat.... I'M CHOKING, YOU ASSES!!!

Not only am I bombarded with telemarketing calls (5 to 10 a frigging day some times), and big ads jumping up on the screen because I let my cursor accidently roll over an ad.... now they're on my site meter!!! I go to look at a logged visit I don't get any details at all (such as what part of the country the visitor was from) I get a FRIGGING ASS AD IN MY FACE!!!!!!

MYGAWD... the greed is horrendous!!!!!

Calm down, Crusty.... calm down. No doubt its a way for site counter to get you to pay for the service. After all, you got it free for a while. Well F**K 'EM! I'll delete the crap.

Seems like today has a theme.... greedy USA marketing. Advertising. After all, look what advertising did for tap water. Put it in a plastic bottle and you can get a buck for it. The idiots will go for anything if you advertise it enough!! Its true... we get what we deserve. And we're idiots. Idiots with a sheep mentality.

Crap. I better go meditate now. Maybe I'll come up with a way to get back at 'em! One thing for sure, I'm deleting Sitemeter!!

Added: Its done. Sitemeter is now off of my site. My tiny tinyt protest stands. Probably stands unnoticed, but stands nonetheless!! Now I feel calmer.

That 'timing' thing again. (what was on tv while you read this)

I was just rereading my rant. I really let myself go for a minute. I'm calmer now and although I did have a thought to go in and try to clean things up a bit, that would be a tiny bit dishonest... in my opinion. There's always the other side of things.... good/bad, on/off, up/down, calm adult/raging moron. Free/Payment.

I did delete sitemeter and now that I've calmed down I thank them for the free service I got for however long it was. But no thank you.
