    For some reason, the ad companies don't seem to be getting the message. I'm not yet entirely convinced they didn't just delude themselves into thinking people actually want to see their stuff and ad blockers are secretely installed malware.



    I do think this thread belongs in the feedback subforum rather than Warcraft General though.

    Well the thing is

    1. It works
    2. People who install ad blockers wernt going to fall for it anyway
    3. Adblockers though common enough to be a problem in some circles arent common enough to stop them...youll see social media clickbait is as strong and as common as ever

    Nah, go read some of their releases on ad industry conventions and such. At least some of them actually can't grasp that people just don't want to see their crap and that making them more intrusive and obnoxious won't help that.

    Or they are the ones who target the dumb but rich whales...

    I mean thats why the robocall scammers are still a thing they do like 10k calls an hour and they may hit 20 people and 5 of them fall for it. But those 5 people gave them 20 grand each

    And there are option to stop those adds.

    and they need to make money to stay alive. Its not like blizzard is going to pay them. Since they just fired a group of people again so they can give their boss a bonus.
    Some of you are missing the point. The ad itself doesn't bother me. I dont use those services, content is not going to "scar" me. Its the fact that it is on a site that promotes the very game with the money of companies that offer services that will get you banned from that game.

    Its just ironic and silly.

    not a big deal though, Thanks for all the input from everyone. no one sees what I see. It WAS me after all.

    It isn't on purpose. We don't handpick every single ad; they are handled by a third party ad service.

    Please report them here so chaud can have them removed: https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...orting-bad-ads
