A few people on the Omani commentatership webspaces posted sometime ago regarding the phenomenon of online advertising and brand management. Here's my little take on it.
While it seems that the commentaters have had interesting ideas to note out, they all dodged this very little tiny detail that somewhat reshapes the argument.
NOBODY LIKES ADVERTISING.
Advertising is the vilest, most digusting disease that humanity has ever had to endure. I would rather have to face a few moments of the sad, empty, soulless, piss-smelling vomit-filled dark alleyways that is my existance than have to watching your fucking insurance shit between my programming, reading or browsing.
I have never, nor will I ever buy a product because of how well it's been marketed or advertised, and nor should anyone else. A good product sells itself, builds excitment and gets people talking about it and recommending it to each other, and before any of you soul-leeching, cum-sucking little pests that work in marketing parade yourself with the nifty "word-of-mouth" concept you've claimed it with, it's never been yours. It's called craftsmanship, and you've killed it with your life destroing quest of pennies.
I hope you die and I hope the rest of you enjoy the remainder of your day.
