Reasonable Emergency

A greeting for a company voicemail I came across today:

Thank you for calling the Ivan Security Shared Services Center. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If this is an emergency, please call us back later at (the same number I dialed).

WIDTS: So you want me to call back later when I have an urgent need for assistance? To the SAME NUMBER that only allows me to leave a message? Seems reasonable to me…

I swear the internet is completely overrun with ads and commercialization. It’s really pathetic. Pop-up ads, PPC(pay-per-click) ads, SPAM, BACN, ick, ick, ICK!

But I have a way to combat at least part of it. Go to a website/blog (start here or over here) that you want to support and click on EVERY ad on their page at least once a day, from ALL of the devices you can. Hell, let your 5-year old play games on your home PC in exchange for an hour of clicking on every ad he can. How will that change the situation you ask? Well once the people who have to PAY for those ads see a decline in the effectiveness in turning page visits into actual revenue and an increase in their costs, they will be less inclined to SPAM-inate the web with that crap.

Sometimes, the solution is the exact opposite of what you think it is.
