That's not true, except maybe for some government officials and other activities "involving the national security" (which can be pretty vast and arbitrary in China). Regular citizens do not need this exit visa and can leave the country whenever they want (it is the entry visa to any other country which can be hard to get).

So because it is worse elsewhere we shouldn't say anything ? An ad on a bus may be bigger and more distracting than an ad on a Kindle, but I have much less power over the bus company than over the device I bought myself.

And to answer your question: I can't drive or walk without seeing ads. And it does bother me.
