Dear adbots,

Posted January 20th, 2013 at 08:54 PM by droomph

you know what would make me want to buy your crap?

If it was good.

Don't try to push your service on me - the only notice you're getting out of me, is to immediately take note of your service or product, and remember to never, ever, visit that site or buy that product, lest I make them think they win. I think that's counter-intuitive, don't you also think so?

You know why people don't want to buy things they don't want? Because they have control.

Unlike you, who go around spamming the website where most people don't even have money, and yet you're advertising some African goat cream from the Serbia that can cure hyperthalamy or whatever the damn you wanted to sell so much you're willing to make people feel bad that they're poor.

I would buy your product if I actually had the need for it.

I would only buy a used batch of compost, if I wanted one, and only to relive the good ol' days or something. Not one ad that you push on me about stupid little crapicles has ever convinced me to buy it. I've never gone, "oh hey! Compost. I'll buy that!" No. The only way I'll buy it is if beforehand, I was thinking "Oh my god, I really want some compost to relive the good ol' days!" and then I run into your little stinkin' ad, and then go, "Hey, compost!" And even then, I would hesitate to buy it, if it's a common product, like Gameboys or some boobs everywhere game (I'll go play RuneScape if I want a game, and porn if I want boobs tyvm)

You know how to make money? Make a stellar product, and spread it by word of mouth. Use advertisement sparingly. Think of advertising as yelling across the neighborhood, "LOOK AT ME!!!". If you persistently yell it, nobody will give a crap, honestly. So make yourself interesting to look at, then tell people to look at you.

Do you understand? I want products, not flashy subliminal text.
Best Regards,
Someone who has seen wayyyyy too many adbots

    I am sure the adbots will see this and reconsider their purpose in this world.

    This is why I hate adbots, I report them as soon as possible.

    They even once called me "Adbot Killer".

    horse_ebooks (and horse_ecomics by extension) is the only good spambot.

    Honestly I would never visit a spambot site because I'd be too afraid that it was filled with malware.
