Here's why this blog will never take ads

Over on on Oliver Willis's blog, he's railing against keeping the Bush tax cuts, as well he should. But as I scrolled down the page I saw an ad telling me that we should keep the Bush tax cuts.

And that's why I will never ever put ads on this blog. I won't have my opinions and message undercut by some asswipe who wants to make a dime off my readers. Fuck that noise.

Three cheers to that post. Actually I prefer...my personal choice...not to commericalize my blog at all. It's my blog...it's my words...it's my idea's...and it's free :-)

See that shit all the time. Drives me nuts. And on a lot bigger sites that Oliver's. There is no excuse for that crap.

Funny, that's exactly why I do have ads on mine. It tickles me no end that, for instance, the Palin campaign has to pay a couple bucks to Blogspot when they are reaching the exact opposite of their target market. I know I'm not exactly bleeding her dry, but I still enjoy it.

I'd say I agree, but I only don't have ads on mine because Google wouldn't work. I believe it is my propensity for foul language and adult situations that might've gotten me blanked out, but I cannot be certain.

Agreed! The only messages on my blog are the ones I put there.
