Full Screen Ads - Yow! - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Yeah I hate those :smt013 fullpage ads that pop up on a lot of the websites. If it ever happens here I'll go elsewhere.

The one I hate most is EE Times website. Theirs gives you a place to click to skip the ad and then it usually makes you sit there through the entire countdown anyway. I hate their site and refuse to go there anymoe. I look at hyperlinks before clicking and if they go to EE Times, I don't click - except by accident.

Some of the news sites are pulling this crap now and I won't go to them either.

You are doing the most important thing, and I do it also.

If I see those kinds of ads, I immediately leave the site. If the site was in my 'bookmarks' file, I remove it.

The people that run the site run statistics regularly to see how their site is performing. If more of us would immediately leave the site and not go back, they would very quickly see that something they have done is chasing people away.

But (worse)^n*these are the full page ad-webs that trap you and give no "reverse out" back-arrow.
They really suck, especially if you need to return to say your origin google or altavista engine site where there are loads of results pages you need. But you lose the lot simply because some total skrote designed a site you get trapped in, like in a black hole.
(Wow, I never got closer to flaming on a site before. Close one)

Evening Gents,

You can add Cellular News to the list of site to be abhored for such schemes.

Forbes takes the prize because they title their page to be a "Welcome Screen."
