Advertising is good for many people, but the flood of advertisements everywhere is choking society, just about every webpage on the planet has an add on it, and so do many tv programs.

I agree, however how else do you think companies which post these advertisements are meant to get word out about their product?

the thing is though azk, many companies trick you with their ads! blatantly lying by saying, "Free" ringtones, then adding you to a $5 a week subscription! this tricks amny people who are not very wise in the ways of the inernet, honest marketing is a time of the past.

Actually, ads don't lie to you, that's illegal. They might say Free ringtones and give you the ringtones for free, but require a $5 subscription fee for the 'copyright issues' or something along those lies.
But you guys still haven't answered my question, how would we know about potentially life-changing products unless they are advertised?

Yeah, I agree, the trick ads are pretty harsh.

Does anyone else have any input to add into this debate? Razz
