I've been against non-print advertising since cable television became widespread. Prior to that, television was free (to use) because advertising paid for it. At least here in North America.
Today, you pay your cable or satellite provider who pays the content providers who still collect the advertising revenues. The consumer now pays way more and still has to watch advertising.
Now the streaming services are going to start advertising. If you pay for premium service, you will get fewer ads.
Advertising must work or advertisers would not continue to advertise.
Print advertising has never bothered me because you can turn the page without losing the train of thought in the article you are reading.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
