You're in Advertising? Kill Yourself!

If I could give up Linux and masturbation, I'd probably gain 30 working hours in a week.

The only people on the planet who like advertisements are either marketing rodents, or the people who pay the creatures slightly below Rattus Norvegicus for their commercials. And it's an unfortunate fact that the only way to escape the continuous bombardment of various degrees of sales hawking, is to either destroy the advertising, or the medium in which the offensive advertising is being delivered. And while taking a chainsaw to billboards is admirable to the point of encouragement, it's not very realistic. So what can you do lighten the carpet-bombing intensity of the hucksters in your life?

When I was first introduced to the World Wide Web during its final beta stages; I saw it as wondrous information delivery system that had the power and capability to expand people's minds and consciousness. Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time before ethic-less, fecal bottom-feeders pushed this potential down to the level of mainstream television.

I am thankful to say, though, that a handful of computer programmers have chosen not to sit quiet like good Germans as the most influential tool for illumination since the printing press is turned into another worthless cash generator. These keyboard jockeys have conjured up many ways to push the weasels back in their dens. They're currently offering to free you from the vice-like grip of the marketers who fill web pages with bandwidth-clogging ads, which impede your journey to becoming a better human.

Programmer and activist extrordinaire @man (pronounced "atman") has been fighting the hoards of toad-like beings that pollute the Internet with various levels of spam & advertising. His latest offering concerns how to set up your browser so that all advertising is removed permanently. His publication is easy to follow and written so that even the most novice of computer users can set their system up to refuse the garbage from a marketing department.

Get it, use it, and send the scum back into the dark foul abyss whence the came!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
