Broken links exactly as bad as kids with guns
No. I don't think this ad is as bad as this one, but don't you think it's a little over-the-top to compare broken links with a three-year-old packing a 9 millimeter? This postcard ad is for a product called LinkFixerPlus made by LinkTek, a Clearwater, Florida-based company which counts UBS, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman as its clients. (Maybe this is appealing to the military- contractor demographic.) Turn the postcard over, and there's an attempt to turn this stupid/offensive ad into a concept. It says: "You wouldn't let your kids play with guns. So don't pull the trigger on your data migration project without LinkFixerPlus!" Sheesh.
