These banner ads piss me off. Is anybody really falling for this crap? Seriously, "3 killer guitar control secrets" and "learn the 47 blues 'tricks' to be a guitar god"?!

These ads pretty much squat down and take a big ol' crap on everything pretty much all of us are trying to achieve. They make it seem like the rest of us are muddling along in silent stupidity when we could be learning TEH 3 KILLAR SEKRETZ~!

Just venting I guess cause I've seen em like 47 times in the past half hour, but anyone else as irritated as I am at these blatent attempts to cash in on the ignorance of early players?

(I think they're watching us; the ad at the top of the page when I entered the thread was one for 47 blues tricks. TS, you should be careful, you may have angered them)

I must say, I was quite angered when I entered, the user, solidgay's first thread, entitled "homoeroticism in metal" and got an ad that said gayBEARdating.

No joke...I think someone has it sigged as well.

But TS, there are 3 killer secrets you need to master the guitar, and I'm offering them to you all for free right now!

1. A guitar.
2. A massive amount of determination.
3. Decades of practice and hard work.

You guys owe me big for these three secrets, and you better not tell anybody, they're confidential!

EDIT: ^ Yeah I saw that gay bear dating ad thing on youtube. What on earth is this world coming to...

Alright, fair enough. I still wanna get the pit's opinion though. I'm sure UG is making some kinda money from em, but frankly I find those ads insulting.

LOL *** Pear.

See this is why the pear was banned in the first place. The pear has no place in this thread, as it is serious topic involving actual discussion. The pear should only be used for stupid threads, like the thread with the guy who's getting married at the age of 18.

EDIT: SWEET now W U T is banned? LMAO
