      Humans are more pliable when they are in a state of fear. The AI knows this. :P

        Are there still self-playing videos? I used to view ads, even with a paid subscription, but the self-playing video ads eventually forced me to click the "remember me" check box, in the login screen.

          Not aware of any self-playing video ads... If you see any, please let me know the video URLs as I do block those as annoying.

            I always wondered why sites didn't serve up content through the same content distribution network used to serve ads. It seems like that would have the best chance of defeating ad blockers.

            ...well, until someone makes AI ad blockers that download the add and then run a classifier to determine whether or not to show it.

                Huh? The self-playing video ad (VDX by Exponential) that follows you around on the page and cannot be dismissed has been the topic of discussion with you several times. It is super annoying, will increase in size if the mouse pointer gets close, and consumes 100% CPU. And if it was not clear from the screenshots, you were explicitly told that the ad is playing a video.

                And I know that you read this, because you quoted and responded to this post.

                  Looks like Google ML is not that great. Advertisement for Black Desert Online and only supported on Windows.
