Fuck Unisilver



WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS UP WITH THESE UNISILVER TIME + SAM MILBY ADS?! Has anyone else experienced this? You click on a link, and instead of going to the page you expected, you get a FUCKING SAM MILBY WATCH ADVERTISEMENT. And NO, you are not whisked off to your intended destination afterwards. You have to hit the 'back' arrow -- assuming you didn't open a new tab -- and click AGAIN. FUCKERS.

I don't even own a watch and have no intention of buying one in the near future, so I'm far from the ideal target for this stupid ad. But even if I had a million bajillion pesos and was burning with an almost-sexual need to buy a watch, this ad makes me want to spend all that money on killer adamantium robots instead, who will home in on whoever thought up this campaign and torture them mercilessly for years. Money well spent if you ask me.

UPDATE: Added the graphic above, which is what the ad looks like, plus some comments by me.

Turns out I'm not alone in my annoyance. Niña commented "I know! I saw that too! It was so annoying! I thought LJ (I was replying to a comment when that happened) might have struck a deal with Sam milby, sheesh." D.B. asked "In what sites do these ads usually sprout up?"

Doesn't seem as if Unisilver has worked out a deal with any specific site; this stupid ad has attacked me while I was browsing through LiveJournal, a comics news site, a blog about the "Honey and Clover" anime series, and worst of all, my barkada's online logbook, which only members can read and post on.

Unisilver must have installed something on my PC which redirects the browser every so often to their fucking ad regardless of what you're browsing on the 'Net, and, as I mentioned before, THEY DON'T RETURN YOU TO YOUR INTENDED DESTINATION. I'm used to having to plow through ads to get to content -- hey, I read Salon -- but this is something else entirely. BASICALLY, IT'S A VIRUS.

Do any of my lawyer or techie friends have thoughts on the legal/technical iffiness of this crap?

If you're on dial-up and using ISPx Bonanza prepaid cards, then the culprit must be the ISP Tri-isys. Check out this post from Yugatech --> http://www.yugatech.com/blog/?p=1430

Sam Milby must be stopped!

He's invaded all forms of media and soon...he'll infect our brains! Causing humankind to spiral into a society of mindless drones, who are content with mediocrity and the constant rewarding of the untalented.

Destroy Sam Milby! It's our future's only hope!

He he. Thanks, Niña! :)

Hi Kidlat -- at first I assumed you were my old friend Kidlat, but then I realized you are another Kidlat altogether. Thanks for the input! :) As a matter of fact, I do use ISP Bonanza at home. But if they're to blame, then I'm going to start buying some other brand of prepaid card. Niña's on DSL and it still happened to her though...

And yes, Kristine, I agree: Sam Milby must be stopped. For the sake of civilization itself! *loads shotgun*

Hi Pauline! :) Funny, I just finished reading Insanely Great. I remember being awed as a kid by that 18-page ad that Apple ran in magazines to introduce the Macintosh. I wanted one. Of course, since it cost $2000+ in 1984, I might as well have wished for a rocketship.
