I Can't Stand This Banner Ad!!!!

Postby Coppermine » Fri Nov 11, 2005 2:52 pm

Does anyone else get annoyed by this:

I understand the banner ads are critical to the success of FBC, and I'm not saying that I am against the banner ads... I just think this one is particularly annoying, like that Capital One commercials where David Spade makes "chubsy" wear a wire, and then the lady throws soda in his face, and he starts blowing up... well you get the point...

Anyway, i don't want to play WARP, ok?

Never seen that one.

Though I can see how it could be annoying.

Is blocky thingy some sort of technical jargon?

I can honestly say I have not clicked on it. I'm terrified of it, I don't even want my mouse point near it.

I don't need Kerry or Bush with crazy mouth 'warping' jumping through my computer and giving me a crazy warp virus.

Seriously though, what is the banner advertising anyway? Click to play WARP? WTF is warp?
