Protest against Ad Banners, Article #2.....
Angry AOL bloggers now push boycotts Stephen Baker
The anger over banner ads on AOL Journals is reaching a fever pitch. Bloggers are organizing boycotts of advertisers, presumably including Bank of America, whose ad appears on the Journals I've seen today. One even features flash art.View image I'm still not seeing any response from AOL.
Some Journal bloggers, of course, are less bothered by the ads. Here's a very funny post from an AOL blogger who shrinks from the idea of migrating to Google's Blogspot.
eww, I simply refuse to post an entry on something called "blogspot". I think I had a blogspot once...
Update: I originally posted the image as an art element on the post. But on second thought, I didn't think it was right to post ads as art (especially on a post about people rebelling against ads). So I changed it to a pop-up.
Now, I know that not everyone minds the ads, or are against fighting to have them removed. However, I feel that making light of this is not going to get us the type of press we need right now. (I'm not saying you cannot have your own opinion, I am addressing the writer of the article... don't go hatin')
Still, just to have the issue still being discussed counts for something :)
