    Google certainly does not give a fuck about me, my quality of life.

    They prove it in so many ways.

    I have noticed ads at the top. And am now noticing 'pop-up' ads appear. I view it as the typical 'monetizing' the Platform strategy.

    I first started to give Google the StinkEye something like 15 years ago when they degraded the usefulness of their search engine.....it could be a lot better.....it used to be a lot better......but the better search engine is not what Google wanted.

    I was over at Able2Know at the time and I complained....I got told basically "It's free, they can do what they want, shut up".

    I wonder if any of those people regret not caring about Google now.

    I am not so sure about the ad blockers. I understand the reason. But still.

    Plus how long do you figure that the Tech Overlords will allow them?

    Not for long I figure.

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    it is a slippery slope. first, you start experimenting with print ads. then, you get bored and move up to the harder stuff- video commercials...eventually, you get hooked on pot and your whole world crumbles around you.

    Thus depriving the guy who owns this place from generating income to pay for your privilege of using his site. I hope you make up for it via donations.

    Heheheheh, that would be funny.

    My favorite is when some user demands to know why Damo is running ads for porn sites.
