Outsurance - internet terrorists?

23 April 2012, 08:23
I am enraged that when I opened my internet browser to view the IOL TV schedule that, no matter how I tried, by scrolling up or down, or left and right, all I could only see was an Outsurance advert.

I tried going left and right but the Oustsurance ad kept moving in a way that prevented me from seeing the information I wanted to see, and seeing that this was a TV schedule, how invasive is this? It was preventing me from seeing the TV schedule. This is scary advertising.

I protest and am adamant that these invasions of our privacy should be removed. I have cancelled my insurance policy witrh them and hope you do the same.

Oh and iol you are a bunch of woosies for agreeing to this.

How can we allow this kind of terrorist, invasive behaviour? If you Google a certain keyword, can you abide by an invasive "outsurance advert" preventing you from seeing what you want to see? This is internet terrorism, can't you see that?

If this kind of behaviour is allowed you would have to wade through all the ads to see what you wanted to see. Who created this form of internet invasivness and terrorism?
