I’m wondering: how many times does it happen every night that someone quietly browsing the Web (perhaps when others in the house are already asleep)  is startled by sudden blaring music coming from his computer, curses loudly, and closes the Web browser in a mad panic?

It happens to me from time to time.

I don’t know what the marketing theory is behind these let-us-startle-the-person-who-clicked-on-our-link-with-blaring-audio pages, but if there are any marketing types out there reading this, well, let me assure you: the only possible reaction you get from me is closing the Web page in question in the above-mentioned mad panic, accompanied with rather crude utterances in both English and Hungarian, and an oath never to buy whatever product or service you were advertising, indeed, preferably never to visit your site again.
