For hundreds (or maybe thousands) of years, people have been slayed by charlatans. History tends to repeat itslef. Nowadays, psychics are still as popular as they were in the middle ages, yet know, so called psychics can reach millions of people through an internet connection. Sites like Kasamba and Keen.com constantly advertise their free divination services through Google’s excellent display network, tempting web surfers to try their services. But is this moral? People, seeking answers to their most complex and emotionally charged questions, deposit their trust (and money) on these tarot sites which promise free readings but end up convincing the visitor to pay for a “real” reading by a “real” medium. I think this type of advertising should be banned, similar to how cigarettes and alcohol are no allowed to be advertised on the search giants’ platform.
It is a phenomenon similar to sex addictions or betting. People just can’t help it. Knowing what their future holds seems to be an invaluable advantage, and they are not rational when it comes to spending their money. Let ban psychic services from the internet, similar to how casinos and porn sites are now banned from Google’s advertising platform.
