Forced ideals - Improper advertising!

I understand Ad's are a part of everyday life and i can deal with them. Until such time as they begin forcing others political, religious or ideological ideas on me this is where i draw the line. I will no longer have any product created by Brand Thunder due to this on any device I own. I will also make sure that this ideal of yours is widely broadcast.

  • Hi James. Thanks for the note. Yes, we do deploy banner ads on some of our products to help pay the bills. The only ads I have seen are from IBM, Hertz, Epson and similar top brands. What offending ad in particular did you see? I appreciate your help in tracking this down.

  • Political mostly, Hillary Clinton .. Contest, ect., but there have been several others. I do not not think it is your place nor my computer your environment to hoist your political, religious or idealogical option upon me ... When you invade my personal computer and give me no choice to turn it off. That is an invasion of my privacy and ideals. Leave those subject to the mainstream media to which I can control them.

    When I load a program or background to my computer, I do not wish it to cross that line nor should I have to put up with it at all. I have absolutely no problem with you showing ads, as that is how business works and who knows I may see one that interests me.

    However, do not try and take control of what is mine, and thrust your opinion on me.

    By not allowing me to control the ads you are doing just that and I find it offensive.

    Remember throughout history there have been many who have thrust their opinions upon others, and forced them to listen. One from Germany comes to mind, are you like they were? Is that how you want to be seen or perceived?
