So, I'm watching old Jazz videos on YouTube, and when I refresh the page, I see one of those silly Ask marketing banners. Up until now, they've just been dumb...but this latest one "The Unabomber Hates the Algorithm"....what is the deal with this?
The Unabomber killed 3 people and wounded more than 20 others. This is what Ask is now using as a marketing ploy? I'm totally disgusted. Beyond this just not making sense, (am I supposed to say, well if a murderer hates it, then I, a good person, will like it????) it's making me think Ask is being run by a bunch of nut cases. Seriously. Will we soon be seeing H****r featured in one of these things? Some things just aren't joke material...and I honestly don't know if this is supposed to be a joke, or clever, or weird, or thought-provoking, or brain washing or what.
What do members think of this? What is the deal? What is Ask trying to do? I never really used their service before, and after this bizarre campaign, I really can't see myself ever wanting to.
Additionally...why is YouTube running Ask ads? Didn't they, umm, get bought by Google? What's that all about?
These are things you start wondering about if you're up at 3 in the morning while your husband deals with that one last line of code.
What's your opinion about all this?
