Why is the advertising talking to me?

Postby swarmee » Wed Feb 18, 2004 9:17 pm

I don't mind the ads, but I can't stand ads that have sounds playing, especially a girl telling me how she's going to speed up my computer.
Anyone else getting this, or am I the lucky one?

As long as it is not more of those emoticon pop-up, my ads can yodel for all I care.

These emoticons are following me everwhere! Tiny hairless balls of emotion - don't you find them creepy?

It's a banner on the main forums page.

I need some more help here because she didn't talk to me yet. :,-( Is it the "DSL Speed for Dial Up from $3.99/month" ad from a company called "Proxyconn"? If it isn't, what does it say? Erm, I mean, what do you READ on the banner?
