I hate ads.

I report every single ad that appears on my Facebook profile as 'sexually explicit'. Every single one.

FB will send me a notification every single day saying 'we have reviewed your report' blah blah blah. But they only ever do this when it's a small time advertiser. I've never had a FB response from one of the big companies' advert reports. Seems like they have special treatment for the big boys. This bothers me, but not as much as the ads themselves.

Those ads when you are watching a video.... ooooh. I deleted the app after I saw that shit.
Perhaps they have already reviewed it?

Would you pay a monthly subscription for FB?

"I use a free service and then there are ads? Why is this happening to me?"

I will never understand this argument. Same with youtube, "The ads are annoying!!"

You watch as many videos as you want for free. Suck it up.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Anyone come across the youtube ad playing recently of an older Korean lady eating some crunchy fried chicken with her mouth open? Horrific. I reported that shit and went to the video page itself and left a rude comment.

Firstly please don't use vulgar language discriminating the LGBT community.  :rolleyes: :laugh:

Secondly, I was complaining about the reporting of ads not the fact that there are ads. Facebook isn't free. They sell my data and I don't receive any compensation for it. They owe me money not ads.

lol

I would much rather pay a subscription than have to see an ad. I really mean that.

Ads are like those people that write: 'I know you won't read this' CORRECT! I won't read it.

Or

Please like and subscribe within the first minute or more than once on any Youtube video gets an instant dislike from me.  :evil:

Smash the like button is an instant dislike as well. Well pointed out.

Those people that play an animation on their video with their mouse scrolling over to the subscribe button and then the bell notification button also earn an instant dislike.

I really don't mind the constant "Do you have a girlfriend?" question being asked by Koreans (save the time that it was the immediate follow-up to when the taxi driver asked me where I was going), but what gets me is when you say "No" and they ask "Why?"

It's already awkward enough, but it gets even more so if the answer is:

  • I recently broke up.
  • My partner died.
  • I don't want a relationship.

Bet they'd stop asking then (or at least, I'd hope).

Answer them with the same question:

Korean: Do you gave a girlfriend?

Real person: Do you have a girlfriend / boyfriend?  (Imply homosexuality if you feel mischievious, watch them squirm)

Taxi driver: Where are you from?  (in Korean)
Me: Thank you.
Taxi driver: Where are you from? (again in Korean)
Me: Kaenchanmayo
