Agree. No more w/ the defacing of other people's ads. It's the new "SCAM". Stop it.

I agree. If these were my ads I would sue them six ways to Sunday (and I'm NOT a litigious person). This, and that uber-stupid "I'm a Baby" crap that LEECH off of other's paid ad space, are just examples of advertising / marketing at it's worst.

I know this is ambient .. but it would better if the talent in the "ads" were then dead from gotten bitten. Just a thought.

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?
