.. especially at a time when it should be.
I remember years ago when Internet pages were text only and it could be slow then, but only because the modems in use were painfully slow. I have a gateway capable of 100mb, but with pages loaded down with adverts and other crap, sometimes I just get too frustrated to bother.
Some ads open almost full screen and the only way to close them is to shut the host site down. Ha, and you think that I am going to buy ANYTHING from you for making me do that????
Web Advertisers need to learn some manners. They will eventually learn that many of us do NOT respond to bullying, finding alternative routes. I feel sure that some will go bust or lose interest in time, BUT in the meantime, surfing has lost some of its magic.
