Let People Advetise…There is Nothing Wrong with it

Today, I saw a pro-spam comment posted on my entry of “Net Send” – Yet Another Type of Spam. Here is the quote:

So, what do you do when you go to your mail-box outside of your home? Do you beat up the postman when he delivers a piece of junk mail or do you go to court because you received the latest sales flyer from Radio Shack or maybe you call ABC and NBC when your favorite movie is on TV and here comes a commercial. I think not! This whole Spam Issue makes me sick and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Let people advetise…there is nothing wrong with it…it is how you got your website on one of the top search engine pages….OH!, Maybe you forgot that!!!

Very good comment, isn’t it?

This comment helped me to further realize the diversity of the world. At first, I was astonished to see there are some one like Marketor who thinks highly of NET SEND – let me avoid to quote it as spam for a while. I also see how angry he/she was when I call NET SEND spam. These are two different ways of thinking the same thing.

To be honest, this message is a little bit offensive when he asked Didn’t they teach you in school to CLICK YOUR DELETE Key or that little x that is in the top right hand corner of the pop-up. But I am happy that there are some discussion around this, from another persepective.

PS…How long will you leave this message on your board?” asked Marketer.

Why not keep it? I am not the one who will delete negative comment immediately. I will leave it as long as my site is still there.

But I still think net send advertisement is spam

So, what do you do when you go to your mail-box outside of your home? Do you beat up the postman when he delivers a piece of junk mail or do you go to court because you received the latest sales flyer from Radio Shack or maybe you call ABC and NBC when your favorite movie is on TV and here comes a commercial. I think not! This whole Spam Issue makes me sick and you should be ashamed of yourself.

It is true that I, and most of us, accept commercial on TV. Although nobody turned on TV just for commercial, we can accept it since it is still reasonable for the advertiser to pay for the movie. We see the movie since someone paid. It is the same for junk mail in my mailbox – I mean post-mail box.

Please Remember to bring a SHOT-GUN with you the next time you are driving in a city and you see a sign on a building that is advertising that particular business and then take perfect aim and blow a whole in it. This way you can go to jail for a while and leave hard working people alone.

It is also acceptable since the advertiser paid the building for the advertise. I don’t care unless the ad is too ugly.

However, if the advertisements go furthure, extend outside the boundary they should be kept within, and enter my personal boundary, I will think it as spam. That is, if someone goes into my house and put the flyer on my desk when I am working, when they paint the advertisement on the white wall of my guest room, if someone seize me tightly and force me to listen to him how good the product is, no matter whether I am walking on the street or having my dinner – I believe they are outside the boundary of acceptable advertisement and should be treated as spam.

Why net send advertise steps out side the boundary?

Online advertisement is not that offensive, since it is the reason why we get free resources. Popup advertisement is a little big annoying, but it is ourselves who want to visit a web site and we need to accept it.

However, net send advertisement directly popup on MY screen no matter what I am doing. It is just like someone jumping into my room and paint their advertisement on MY wall. I don’t care if he/she do it on his wall or on his friends’ wall – as long their friend is OK for that. But I am angry if I see these kind of popups.

Please continue to discuss this

  1. You’re right. Thanks for the posting that shows how to disable the messenger service. One thing you may want to mention is that the Net Send popups interfere with online games. Many games use the 3D card, which becomes disabled in order to display the net send message. This is very disruptive to the game. I am already subject to the advertisements of the game host, and I am already paying for my web access. Why would anyone think it was ok to use Net Send for advertising? It’s crazy!

  2. I sending you telling you to stop sending your ad to my computer. I am justing going to email you until you stop. I am tired trying to play pinball or writing and see your ad on my computer. I don’t won’t to disturb when I am on the computer. I think that spasm should be outlaw. I understand seeing ad if I was on line but not when I just using the computer. I think it your responsbility to see that your ad does not appear on my computer again and not my.

  3. I think the real culprit here is Microsoft, who build in all these features we don’t want and need, turn them on by default and dont give us any details in Help on how to control them. This isn’t the worst example – the ability to include hidden hta programs in html e-mail, along with the Outlook Express default setting of html rather than text for send and receive probably wins that one
