Inappropriate political ads that flash
I was shocked and disgusted to see a political ad on the screen when I closed a game that I had just been playing. I Have made purchases on HSN in the past and recently, and I enjoy playing the arcade games, despite being forced to see them surrounded by adds ever since the company that owns QVC purchased HSN. However, if the political ads continue, I will cease not only going to HSN to play arcade games and to see what’s new/on sale, but will cease purchasing items from HSN.
I too saw a political ad a couple of days ago while the game “Sparks” was loading and also wrote a note about it which you should be able to find here in the community conversation as it was recent. I asked other people using the arcade to let HSN know if they thought that this was NOT appropriate. To my surprise I did not get much response. Thank you for writing this note – I totally agree with you. I really don’t care much about the other ads – mostly I ignore them, but it was impossible for me to ignore a “political ad” showing the White House endorsing a candidate. I was very surprised that HSN would let a political ad be placed on their site as I am sure hosts are told to keep politics off of the selling floor! I too feel HSN could lose customers like me since the issue of “politics” is a very highly charged issue dividing our country and many people feel very strongly about this subject. It angered me to be captive to watching it. One thing is for sure, the arcade is not the appropriate forum for political ads. That was about 3 days ago and I have not seen another political ad since so I assumed HSN took care of the matter, although now that you have written about this I guess that they did not! Thank you for writing and agreeing with me.
I too hate the ads that have been popping up while playing games. At times my games are lost and my points gone. It is getting so annoying that I too am thinking of leaving the website!
