RE: Un­wanted ads on com­put­ers

The In­ter­net has been taken over by ad­ver­tis­ers who think it is their right to con­tin­u­ously and ran­domly fill our screens with their un­in­vited, ridicu­lous ads. What they are do­ing should be clas­si­fied as gross in­ter­fer­ence with a per­son’s right to ac­cess and use the com­puter. No com­puter in­quiry or news search of any kind is now spared from these pop-up ads and mini sur­veys. The sheer joy and sat­is­fac­tion of us­ing the com­puter has now dis­ap­peared. The com­puter will soon be thrown on to the refuse pile with out­moded tech­nol­ogy as it has be­come a highly-of­fen­sive com­mu­ni­ca­tions tool. There is no way of block­ing this type of highly-ir­ri­tat­ing com­puter spam and no way to legally stop it. Jim McDon­ald, Dundas
