Yesterday I wrote about the latest anti-neuromarketing flap in Guard Your Reptilian Brain! While researching that post, I found an interesting spinoff at another site, Progressives, South Bend. I initially couldn’t find the text “neuromarketing” on that page. When I searched the page text, I found what looked like a short horizontal line was highlighted. Imagine my surprise that the “line” was actually incredibly small text that read, “Join With Us to Stop Neuromarketing.”
I grabbed a screen shot of the “secret message” in case it’s no longer visible on the Web.
So, was this a bizarre attempt to communicate a subliminal call to action? Or simply bad webmastering? As amusing as the former explanation would be, I’m guessing it’s the latter.
