Ads on this humble blog

I’ve gotten a couple more reports about ads popping up on this blog. Once again, I’ve not seen them, but several people say they sometimes do, especially in the comments function.

I stated earlier that I never explicitly authorized this (though I suppose I agreed to it in the terms of service I clicked through). Nor have I been paid a nickel for them. Since I can’t screen these ads, and since I’ve never seen any of them myself, I can’t say that I support or object to whatever is being displayed.

If you should ever happen upon one, you might send me a note just to say what kind of ad you saw. I’m mostly just curious, but it if turns out that something dreadful was being platformed here (can I use that as a verb?), I might try to do something about it.

  1. Nothing here that I see… I remember someone telling Betsy Lerner the same thing, and she never contracted with advertisers either. Must be a WordPress thing that only shows up for certain readers…

    Advertising

    To support the service we may occasionally show ads on your blog, however we do this very rarely. You can remove ads from your blog for a low yearly fee. We also have an option for high traffic blogs to show their own ads.
