    How could you possibly know what out there with out some form of advertising? Oh thats right you can read minds... Silly me..

    Yep and a thief don't have a job because society provided all they will ever need.

    Thanks to the file sharing, rippers, selfish half wits we all have to put up with lower quality products and those that pay have to pay more. But of course you wont mind me walking into your house and taking what ever I like...

    Im sure its nothing that a sledge hammer and some quick footed running can't get over. Especially if I know that no one will chase me. It still makes it morally wrong.
    Yep and Im sure the producers are perfectly happy that you steal their content... Are you also saying that the French, Czech and Italians don't advertise. Do you know what a billboard is, have you ever watched free to air TV or radio. How could you possibly know what you want to watch without some form of advertisement. There are 6billion odd creative individuals on this planet, but off course you mind readers can hone in on the good stuff without ever listening or watching anything that is provided legally free... I wish I could do that.

    Im sure you pay little attention to the ad's on this very page.. But without it this forum would soon disappear. It requires money to run this forum and without advertising you blogs would have no where to crap..

    opps.. No offense to the good posters that don't steal...

    BEHOLD - Sciforums like it used to be in the good old days! (pardon a cliche)
    No ads or any sign of them.

    to achieve: with your webbrowser or any adblock soft block the following url ->
    http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/

    I'm using Mozilla Firefox with Adblock v0.5 d2 extension

    p.s. I don't actually mind google ads. they're minimalistic, nice and usually on the subject.
    it's just that I prefer Sciforums to look like they used to look back when I joined
    and I probably wouldn't buy anything advertised there anyways

    Is that an ad in your post?
    Trust the blogs to have such double standards...

    I go and see almost every movie in the movie theatre. There are free magazines with reviews. The old classics I know from TV during my childhood.

    Yep. As with free to air TV and radio. They are free because they are full of advertisements. Open one of your free mags and count the number of full page ad's.

    The reason they a free is because the advertisers pay for them... To produce a 30 page mag with glossy pages and a run of 10000 will cost $5000-$10000 dollars. This cost burden is carried by the advertisers.

    that is bullshit
    they are not free
    the nerve cells that they potentially can kill are non restorable and very valuable to me. advertising=brainwashing
    I hate whens somebody tries to do that.

    besides, they take away valuable time. even if you don't agree with me on the frustration->nerve cell destruction
    advertisments->editing the audience's psyche

    The only times I look at the ads on these forums is to make sure I don't click on the darn thing when pointing my mouse to the scroll bar.

    What about ads in movie theaters? Admission prices goes up every year and we still have to endure big loud stupid ads.

    I skip those. I can't on a DVD. When I was young there was only twice a day or so advertisements on TV. Not 8 times in an hour. No advertisements on sunday though back then. The community paid for TV. Then the commercial stations came and now it is apparently ok to show adds all the time. Even on government sponsored TV (for which we pay the TV liscence) it has become acceptable to show adds all the time.

    I dumped my TV a year ago. I was fed up with watching a program inbetween the adds.

    The one I am referring too is made out of newspaper paper. Not so many adds either. It is probably parly sponsored by the city.

    Next thing we know they will start putting adds in BOOKS! Because it is SO expensive to print them. Every other page is an advertisment.
