I also got the scientology ad just now.

As a loyal follower of Xenu I feel very offended to be confronted with ads for a cult that seeks to destroy my lord and master.

Did I say Xenu? I meant Xena. What on earth those freaky cultists could have against the warrior princess I'll never know.

OK, seriously what the f*** is this "XOS Sports Minute" video that pops out of the corner of the screen on XM and how do I get rid of it?!

Now that were on this topic, surely no human being is capable of believing those: "youre the 1000000th person to visit and won. Claim your prize!".

Yet if no human being is dumb enough to even consider falling for that monkey bait, then why do these adds keep gaining momentum? Does this not suggest that people do indeed fall for this? Since its impossible to be stupid enough to fall for this, and since these advertisements are ever more ubiquitous due to people falling for it, ive reached a paradox.

Ill call it..... "youre the 1000000000th visitor!!!" paradox.

Similarly, if no human is capable of falling for the "Im an African Diamond Smuggler for the Democratic Republic of Congo and I need a Beneficiary Account in Belgium, you get 10%", and since these are ever more frequent, which suggests people are indeed falling for it, ive reached another Paradox. Ill call it...... "Im an African Diamond Smuggler for the Democratic Republic of Congo and I need a Beneficiary Account in Belgium, you get 10%" paradox.

People do indeed fall for them. Every month the papers here report some poor schlub getting duped by the Nigerian scam. People can indeed be that stupid.

I just had a horrid video advert pop-up in the bottom right of the screen with some woman talking pish about, I think, some new Comedy Central show starting after The Daily Show. I'M NOT EVEN AMERICAN FFS

There seems to be a whole bar with google ads that's been added to the forum recently. It appears directly below the google search bar. It's integrated in the Xtratime forum design, so it gives the impression of being XT specific (internal) links like the prediction league, while in fact it are regular google ads to external sites.

I keep getting weird ads for US companies. One of them has a still picture of the actor who played Schillinger in Oz, which is terrifying to me as a fan of Oz because well, he was an evil dude.

God, I need to watch Oz again, that show is wonderful.

Was the advert for the TV show Oz? If so, I think the advertising worked!

This isn't an annoying advert but I saw an o2 advert in Turkish. They don't even have o2 in Turkey.

Hey guys, I keep getting this ringing phone ad. At first it happened once every 10 clicks, but now it's like every other time. Really getting annoying. Is there any way I can turn the sound off, without having to shut down my speakers?

Can you supply a screenshot of it the next time it occurs, so I can send it off to VS and have them inspect?

Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

"some of these are IP specific, I will see if I can find it. If you can ask the user reporting it to right click and copy link and email this to me. I will track it down and have it removed.

P."


This is from VS, so if you can please follow those instructions when reporting ads it will make it easier for them to track it down and remove it.
