Regular readers will know how I hate advertising.
It is an all pervasive part of the modern world and there is no getting away from it.
If it moves – stick an ad on it. if it doesn’t move, stick an ad on it.
They are on walls, buses, at the side of the road, on television, on radio and basically anywhere where anyone might chance to look. It has reached the stage where I check my arse every night to see if someone has fly-posted on it.
I fucking hate advertisements.
When one is being paid for advertising, it’s a different matter. Innit?
Many years ago, I had advertisements on a site, somewhere. I don’t remember where but they must have earned something as I remember once getting a cheque from Google. And recently I checked my account and the fuckers still have about $28.39 of my money. Now seeing as the mangy bastards don’t cough out a cheque for anything less that a hundred, I have to earn myself another $71.61. And the only way of doing that is by advertising.
So I have been toying with the idea of sticking them on this site.
You can ignore them, or if you are really nice you can click on them and earn me some readies.
If you really hate ‘em you can install AdBlock Plus, like what I have.
So if advertisements do appear, it’s just me being a hypocrite.
But sometimes principles have to be side-lined.
Particularly when $28.39 is at stake.
