Love The Advertising

I'm loving the advertising tonight on this site. I got a big laugh out of it. Evidently the random ad section turned up a link to the BSA, where you can turn in someone who might be illegally using or copying software. This, being a free software forum, has nothing to worry about and we can thumb our noses up at those who still have to pay for their software.

I knew Google ads were a bad idea. We should've just stuck with static text ads.

There is a whole list of sites already being blocked from showing on google ads here. I'll add bsa site to the list, and anyone can always suggest other sites they'd like to see blocked from advertising here. Btw, what was the BSA host URL?

I know that's not completely assuring that no bad ads will be shown though. The google ads have been put at least to get my account balance there to the minimum required for a check send out, as it was sitting at half of it (I had around $50 for months and $100 is minimum for sendout.) The current balance is almost $80.

After it reaches $100 I'll consider taking it off again and sell two google-like looking static ads instead of it.
