Now, I don’t mind the occasional ad here and there, but I get really annoyed when I get a “video pre-roll”. A lot of times, these ads are played indiscriminately! I could be watching a 15 second clip, that I have to watch a 30 second ad to see! The worst ones are when I watch an ad, to see an ad. I’m like, “What the HELL?”
Call me weird, but I actually like seeing ads, here and there. Things might just peak your interest as you wander through the web, but I like the ability to see them at my own leisure, and not get SWAMPED with them.
If the ads were less intrusive I would have never had to take such a drastic measure, but it has, and now, I’m going to watch some ad-free videos.
