    sometimes the banners say "If this banner is flashing, you've WON!
    click here" Does that sound oddly specific? Good. I had one while typing this. I haven't checked what you win, and I don't plan to. IT's always flashing.

    Ever seen those that use the title bar of IE?
    Something like:
    "This Prize was given to you by - Microsoft Internet Explorer"

    God! How I hate these spammers!

    I don't get any of those any more, thank goodness. Popup Killer and Pop-up stopper see to that.

    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.

    *and then*
    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.

    I nearly posted a gripe about the flashing red banner myself, it was driving me up the wall.

    Now that's poor advertising:

    1. Annoy your potential customers

    2. Let your customers know that you think they're stupid
