ads are getting out of hand...
Posted 7/3/17
nobody's going to use your website if every single tick of a video plays 4-5 different ads. it's absolutely ridiculous. one or two MAX. It's excessive. I wouldn't give my money to a business that treats its customers like this. and i say customers, because you DO make revenue off of free users. They may not pay anything, but you get money from the ads. and having 10 ads per video does NOT make people want to do business with you. nobody says "oh maybe i should give these people my money so they don't treat me like garbage" they say "maybe i should use a website that's not going to shove their advertisements down my throat." there's a hundred websites out there.

it's shameful, and it's bad for business. I'm only here because the website i was watching had a broken video, and my backup website is slower than hell. crunchyroll, your behavior is disgusting, and you're alienating people. it needs to stop.

theomegaforce, what i read was "i spend 10 bucks a month on crunchyroll and watch anime 24/7 so i'm superior to you"

you've either forgotten or you're just too stupid to know that crunchyroll blocks you off if you try to watch with ad block, and i don't want to pay $10 a month for something i don't watch that often. i KNOW you're too stupid to read and/or comprehend, because i JUST SAID that i wouldn't give my money to a company that treats people the way crunchyroll does. any website that would force you to sit through 5 minutes of ads per 20 minutes of content does not respect you, nor are they smart enough to see what's good for business/bad for business.

Hi,

So, I saw that you reported Omega for harassment.. then called them stupid in your response. While I understand your frustration with the ads, that's determined by the contracts set up for each show, so it's more something on the publisher side, not something CR has a lot of control over, I believe.

But reporting someone for harassment, then harassing them? Not cool. I'll go ahead and close this.
