Due to the recent glut of advertising spammers on UG forums and comment threads, I was wondering what the Pit thought of them. Are they purely obnoxious? Slightly amusing? Make you want to spend money on the products/services being advertised? Make you want to bring the combined fury of a thousand hackers to bear on their quivering web servers? Poll imminent.

Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.

I think the ad down in the Tab App section right now is pretty successful...
You can call me Aaron.

I say shanannigans, no one looks at them or just goes in to report. They just waste their time and ours
Gotta keep my eyes from the circling skies...
tounge tied and twisted just an earth bound misfit...

The sight of it in the new threads box on the homepage was what prompted this idea

How about the mods give out spammers' email addresses so we can spam them?

On the off-chance that it was actually their personal email, it would be nice to give them total fucking hell.

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

I don't get how any internet advertising works. I never click a link and never will. If it ever happened it was by mistake. I feel like everyone would avoid these, am I right? Or do some of you click ads? I'm not talking about spam particularly but just internet ads in general like something you'd find on the side of goodle or ebay.
THIS IS A PART OF MY SIG. IF YOU ARE READING THIS AS A PART OF MY POST YOU ARE DUMB BECAUSE LETS FACE IT THIS LOOKS NOTHING LIKE MY POST BECAUSE IT IS HUGE.

The ones that have random gibberish with a link at the end I find quite funny. The ones that are actually advertising? Not so much.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

The thought of spammers getting raped by Bronze Series BC Rich guitars amuses me.
#16
some are pretty amusing to me but i guess that's cause i've never saw the appeal of going in a thread just to say *reported or because i don't moderate this forum

I dont think I remember a single product that has been spammed on here
Quote by Night
wtf is a selfie? is that like, touching yourself or something?
#22
Obviously not. I mean who takes the time to read their entire spam fest of ''iPhone 4G for only 199$ with plastic hard case free!!!! Android phones starting at only 250$ and phone plans starting at 10$ a month!!'' and then what makes them think we think they're legit?

I mean I may as well be walking on a street in Mexico and have some guy heckle me into buying an iPhone 4GS or whatever only to find out that when I bring the box home and open it, it has a nice roll of coins in it instead of an actual phone, who would've thought.

By my estimates, Adbot 2.0 have been in use for almost exactly 1 year. See this thread for more details (self plug): https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1469036

I really doubt it.

EDIT: Going through my old adbot thread and lol @ this by Xaoxi:

This guy should be banned:

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/rotten_days/

In virtually all of his threads, regardless of what the topic is, he somehow weaves in a link to the clothing store in which he works at with a selected product. Half of his threads start with a casual mention "so I work at this clothing shop", as if it's some kind of prestigious place to brag about. Kick his ass outta here.

olololololol
