I was ‘attempting’ to browse web pages not via google on a lollipop (andriod) phone and not having much luck and got an pop up offer for two free phones for an iphone and a samsung* – although it picked up the make and our zoo’s isp i thought this advertising pretending to be our isp was very extremely scam-my.
One offer with a countdown had expired , and they assumed that our location was also wrong. My view of the iphone is on record (my blog) so not I do not wish to join the retards who own a iphone. I had to terminate the browser as the advert was not designed for mobile phones
So i decided to ring our isp and ask them if these offers where real and got a definite no as i expected.Our user equipment was not to blame but the settings (or lack of them) as a new phone.
There are people who think ad-blockers are bad (my blog) but perhaps scamming people via popups is good for them. I suppose thats a judgement call
Anyhow i failed to browse web pages on a android phone or even bookmark a page, however it appears lollipop definety needs an adblocker..
The more i observe i conclude that Randall Rothernburg should be assessed for his mental health since he appears to be missing a lot of screws.
Anyhow it was an interesting look at the ethics of the internet advertising board of which seem lacking.
