  • Most of us don’t have rooted android devices. It would be nice to have more effective ways to stop this “in your face” advertising schemes. There is a difference between advertising and advertising manipulation. When I want to go to a web site and read an article and for some unknown reason all the sudden my screen starts flashing I could possibly have 7 viruses on my android device, I need to scan now, has become the norm. When hitting your back page and then being sent to a hundred different places and the ONLY way to stop it is to close your page and start over again, in my opinion, is when advertising has gone to far. We are the ones that allow this to exist and we are the only ones to come together and stop it.
