I am SO SICK of those f*cking pop-up ads for the X-10 wireless webcam. They are friggin' EVERYWHERE! I called the company to bitch, but I got put in a phone cue, presumable filled with other annoyed complainers. I wound up writing them a nasty e-mail
Does this type of annnoyance-marketing actually work? I don't think it's a good idea to piss off your potential customer base.

Well, I myself, anytime ANY commercial starts on the boob tube, I automatically hit the MUTE button. I'd rather spend that time talking with my girlfriend or even our cats! (although they don't say much).
As far as the MOST "annoying" ads go...by far...hands down, it's those dam commercials about female hygene! Why do I have to be told over and over and over about who's got the best maxi pad...with WINGS!

I don't see how it could possibly work. Pop up ads annoy the living hell out of me and they are everywhere now. I even signed up for a server to host my dog's website that didn't have any types of ads. I sent them my money, put up my site, and now they have banners AND those awful pop ups! Ugh.
