    And we get enough of it as it is! TV commercials go at higher volume than
the program you're watching, which pisses me off and I mute the TV. Everywhere
I look when I'm on the street I see an ad, blocking up the view of trees, the
sky, my world... I open my mail and I find 90% junkmail, which I immediately
throw out without looking at a single one. Then I check my email and find spam
from a bunch of losers who know exactly how much they're pissing people off
because they're going to an effort to prevent their true sending address from
being found. Then I get phonecalls at home from telemarketers and I have to
tell them to piss off and leave me alone.
    Advertising pisses me off! If I want to look for a business like yours,
whatever it is, I will actively go and look. I do not want you to come to me. 

    Personally, I realize that advertising is required. Sometimes it's even
a good thing, because I find out that there are services that I didn't know
about. However, I'll trust word of mouth over an ad any day. And I'd prefer it
if ads did not come to me. I don't complain about postings to newsgroups
because I had to go to the newsgroup and actively look, and the signal to
noise ratio in newsgroups is pretty low anyway. However, stay the hell out of
my inbox! Not only will I not use your service, but I'll actively track you
down and let you know how it feels.
