Not only does DA have animated ads now, it forces you to look at ads in two different ways.
The animated ads lag my internet AND my computer horrifyingly. I can barely scroll down the page without taking up 30 seconds-1 minute.
NOW they make almost the whole PAGE an animated ad, remember how they used to do that only if you didn't have an account?
Well, now they're doing it to the
people who hold accounts too.
Honestly, I see several people buy a bunch of different things from DA, certainly points, and they're going forward and forcing
us to view their ads so they can get a
few pennies more? Are you kidding me?
I can't even get through the site without lagging to death. When I post comments it takes 10 seconds before the words show up
and I am a fast typer, do you
have any idea how annoying this is? It makes me want to give up completely on commenting or replying!Now
they are making you "earn"
(OH yes, in their own words, EARN.) downloading someone elses work
(That they put up for free in the first place and didn't
consent to DA forcing the people downloading their
picture to "interact" with ads from what I gather.
) They force you to interact with the advertisement even if you
don't want to, there is no opt out.
Oh, and I recently got diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1. And no, I'm not really okay with that. I'm still in the anger stage. You know what Diabetes Type 1 is? I have
to give myself shots for the rest of my life
. I'm insulin dependent for the rest of my life
. I have to look at the carbs on food, and if it's made from scratch? I have to
dig through the trash to find the wrappers and boxes that were used so I can add all the carbs up and divide it by the servings. If I go to a restaurant and they don't
have the carbs listed? I have to stop what I'm doing and look them up, and even then sometimes it doesn't show up and I have to guess
. Do you have any idea how
easy it is to overdose on insulin? My legs go first. Then I finally pass out, then I have a seizure or I die. (healthline.com)
Now I haven't passed out yet, but I almost did. Although I could go on and on about the downside of being a diabetic, I am glad they caught it in time. I was
diagnosed back in February.
Now back to these stupid ads, when I went to download this amazing drawing by
Doesn't this drawing look EPIC? Go check him out, his art is amazing and he has plenty other drawings of realistic pokemon.
I was forced
to interact with an AD, and guess what popped up?
"Are you interested in healthy living?"Well Apparently I have to be since I have to be insulin-dependent and on a diabetic diet the rest of my life, but no, really, thanks for bringing that up when I simply
just wanted to take my mind off it and download this amazing picture but no, thanks for intervening and bringing up that small little part of my life.
Seriously Deviant Art?
So I'm done with my little "vent", not like anyone will listen to this journal anyways though, I'm not a great artist or anything.
If you do read this I'm sorry for you having to read this, I'm usually not an angry person, but ever since I got diagnosed with Diabetes I've been having anger issues
and I honestly needed to get this out there.
