This Annoying Ad
There are acceptable ads. And the not-so-acceptable. Like this one that flashes and calls attention to people like me who was in dire need of an Apple gadget.
I was conned before and later found out that , once I had signed up, I started getting these random news and information I didn't really want to know about. I realized that I'd rather choose my own time, space and interest to Google everything I wanted to know. Much as I love research, I'd rather choose my path of learning pace.
The catch with this web of information, we cannot unsubscribe from these damn ads. I had to Google the company owners of this business entity. Thankfully, there was a contact number. I called them -- desk-help they sounded-- and I asked about this every-two-minute info getting into my email inbox.
They told me that clicking them, I think, or every time they appear, I was charged $2.50. I had not known that! They had filled up space and time, and the overload of info got very tiring, annoying and abusive. I ordered them to unsubscribe me at that very instant! I informed them, nicely, that I decline -- refuse is the better word-- receiving those spoon-feeding info. They graciously confirmed the complete deletion of my account with them.
My husband always warned me never to click on those clickable taps. That was the very first time with my brand new Smart phone.
