Blogging about Turner Broadcasting’s Gilligan’s Island pie-fight ad, Markos Moulitsas writes:
congratulations — the more people have bitched about the ad, the more successful it has become. It is now the most successful ad in the history of this site, with close to 8,000 click throughs over the low-traffic weekend. And, now that you have demanded I respond to the ad, thousands more will click through to see what the big deal is all about.
Sometimes, the best way to kill something you disagree with is to ignore it.
Reminds me a little of the time The New Republic got tremendous discussion when Markos rejected the magazine’s blogad. Sometimes the echos are far louder than the original retort.
