Not so silly.
I think, you misunderstood.
I met lot of ad-banners, with:
'Your internet connection is too slow', or similary.
The formula:
1. Take an SDK (Visual Basic, Delphi, etc.)
2. Make a form, that resembles to an error message
   (e.g. Warning message, exclamation mark icon, etc)
3. Capture from screen
4. Let it image (jpeg, or animated gif)
5. Embed it into an HTML page

So, what novice users see?
Error message.
