I cannot say enough bad about the IntelliTXT advertising.
The references are either non sequitur, thus useless, thus obtrusive, thus spam, or so obvious it's painful. (..., thus useless, thus obtrusive, etc.)
These ads seem to be targeted at IT pros, as opposed to inquisitive "true newbs" (i.e. the only people uninitiated enough to click everything that pops up at them on the 'Net, much less buy anything from destination site!), but show me an IT pro who doesn't know you can get "[partner info] and whitepapers" at AMD.com, and I'll show you an IT pro who needs to be fired. (Wait, did somebody say "prizes"? I'm there!)
(Aside: "IT pros" links to MS TechNet?! Yeah... I'm sure the LF.org users are just running there in droves... [ed. At least it did when I was authoring this. My example stands.])
I sincerely hope these ads provide significant financial support to LF.org, because if not, I can't imagine a valid reason for them to be in use here.
(...Though I will admit I get an ironic chuckle out of the name "IntelliTXT". "StupiTXT" probably wasn't deemed to be very hype-able.)
Sorry for ranting on day one of my membership, but it's a nice site... why muck it up with this garbage?
