    Ads inserted into YouTube videos

    Are you guys sick of this yet?

    Even privately made/posted videos - YouTube and otherwise - increasingly have some pushy god-damned ad trying to force-feed you some shyster product that you have to endure before you get to the video (or which pop up during the video).

    I'm at the point of can't-take-it-anymore and immediately close the video/don't watch any further if one of these god-damned ads pops up.

    Our entire culture is becoming one gigantic, relentless, inescapable orgy of shyster consumerism. BUY! Now!

    If you look closely there is a small "x" you can click.

    It's a necessary evil bro!

    You Tube has the market on video streaming and ease of embedding.

    Dom, your argument would be supportable if YouTube didn't _also_ have static advertising, _not_ embedded in the video, just like every other webempire that supports itself nicely by selling ad space.
