Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
The whole concept is scary. It has been around awhile. Thank GOD it hasn't caught on. If it did it could kill the internet as we know it.
Yeah, I just picked this adsubtact thread to bump because it was convenient. I've seen some press releases for webwasher, I believe.
Webwasher.com, a spin-off of German electronics giant Siemens, already has more than 4 million worldwide users. Last week, it finished staffing a New York office...As for killing the internet, I think the current ad market has done infinitely more on that score than ad-nuking software will ever achieve.
And if you go into the IE setup, you can at least turn off Animation, which stops all the horrible animated gifs.
As a publisher, I don't want to hear about 'em. ;)
Perhaps noteworthy: I know of a forum (geek-types, naturally) where the site owner reports that over 20% of his banners are blocked by the members.
Its the same with satellite TV, the volume of ads means I now record the vast majority of programmes I watch.
