Their hit counts will go through the roof, they'll think the ad is working, then when the sales don't coordinate with the apparent interest they will implode and go poof and be gone from the web. The higher their hit count sometimes also affects the rate they pay to post their ads, either way you can contact them directly to tell them how you feel about their advertising, or you can counter-hit them the way they are hitting your machine with their advertising. I've heard of people doing the same thing with mass-mailing advertisers by always returning postage-paid envelopes, and of others always trying to take up as much time of phone solicitors time without any intention of buying anything. Bug vs reBug, tit for tat, stuff like that.

None of the above mentioned items are anything more than just random venting and are not meant to construe any deliberate intent to disrupt a legitimate business, they should only be considered as a form of sarcastic humor. Besides, I own nothing and I am nothing more than a virtual presence here so I'm not worth suing should anyone do anything stupid or irresponsible. I just hit the stop button and kill the animation and run any firewalls and popup blockers I can find. If their ads are annoying then they are probably not someone I want to do business with anyway.

Have a nice day, just a click away. And by the way, I'm starting to see where some ISP's are starting to charge based on traffic volume, so these graphics intensive ad's do end up costing some people additional money. Ie: $3.00 in data transfer fees and an additional $30.00 to pay for all the animated and high-res advertising graphics. Screw 'em if they're rude.
Dude, I'm with you - $100 check is in the mail! ;-) nmBowWow
