If someone's actions show you in no uncertain terms that they are NOT in the market for vacation rentals, or new tires, or cell phones, or working for Uber Eats, or an e-book with no description whatsoever to create interest....
STOP SHOWING THEM ADS FOR THOSE THINGS.
I am NEVER going to patronize vrbo or Uber or Belle Tire because of the obnoxiousness of your ad presentation. I don't know who was plugging the e-book, and I never will. That is to the benefit of the author, because I might give them a chance someday. Those other businesses are on my permanent shit list, because of YOU.
They should sue you for damage to reputation. You are THAT bad.
There's a downvote button (sometimes), but the absence of a "NEVER show me this ad again" button is perhaps the worst error of this ad campaign.
Adding companies to boycott as they come up:
Aspen Dental (NEVER show me this ad again, God damn you)
Liberty Mutual (NEVER show me this ad again either)
Update 5/26: Looks like Aspen Dental is the last company to get a clue that this level of in-your-faceness is offensive and pull their ads.
