Re: The DMA does have a point

I use ADBlock Plus, I do not need those security risks into my system. Maybe once ad vendors learn to clean up their own house and get rid of ads with sound and video I will care enough to let them show their ads in my browser again. But I doubt that will happen since rich media ads mixed at 300% volume exist for the same reason TV ads are mixed louder, So that they are harder to simply ignore.

That is part of an effective targeting strategy. As marketers learn what individual consumers want, they can focus their marketing strategies. Customer A likes to be wowed by lights and sound, then great, Customer A receives those types of ads. Customer B likes low key, less-intrusive ads, then Customer B receives those types of ads. Everyone wins. Targeting doesn't just need to be about what products/services individuals might be interested in, it can also shift the individual marketing strategies as well. Volumes on some TV ads are louder because the current broadcast mechanism of TV does not allow truly effective targeting and therefore advertisers resort to "forcing" consumers to be interested in their products by overwhelming them.
