Basic flaw on those ads you get on the side of your computer screen

I actually don't mind these.  What does bother me, though, is repeat showings of items that have sold out.  For example, Jockey is running a sale.  I checked them out originally and those same items show up repeatedly.  All sold out.  One would think they would devote effort to keep available items on this program that they are obviously payingj for. HSN is another one.  Why advertise sold out items?

     The item is just the bait. 

 

The goal is to get you to their website.
