Lost Without the Advertisers


Advertisements on Freethought Blogs – we used to have
plenty but now we have none. I used to see them as ugly,
rude, generally an eyesore. That’s to say nothing of the
infections of spyware unleashed by the more dubious
links. I didn’t like them before. But now?

Feeling kind of sad. I miss seeing the clickbait titles.
Obesity panaceas and hot bible prophecies, means for the
old to become young, or at least smooth out their skin.
Losing the ads has been like losing the spice on our blogs –
simply sad. FtB is too boring now. Capitalism save us.

    Perhaps you could turn this into a clickbait blog, as I have turned mine into a tactical blog.

    well …

    I usually catch that first letter on a line stuff.
    otherwise
    It makes a good poem. Cuttlefish might even have a name for it.

    marcus – the one i just put up isn’t the clickbaity one, it’s the one that’s coming after that.

    chigau – no shame in that. we all miss stuff sometimes. and i bet you’re right, there’s probably a term for that.

    I always carry a tactical flashlight in my right hand and a copy of Stderr in my left.

    Maybe someone needs a set of pink silicone knuckles. Naah, probably illegal. I keep thinking how to make a swarovsky bling katana handle…
