Dredge Up Some CareSo I get an email from Entrecard…

Let’s break this down, shall we kids?

“Twitfall…has been warned…Your blog has a popup advertisement”
I’ve been warned- oh my, whatever will I do. Who do these people think they are? By pop-up I’m assuming they mean the girls sliding up the side of the window, which is technically a flash animation, but I digress. Popups and audio ads do piss me off. I got an email from an actual reader, Dave concerned that the ads were malware, so I was thinking about pulling them before the content Gestapo stopped by…

Well holy shit, I’ve upset the people who had a 125×125 banner on my site. I pulled my entrecard traffic- it’s about .5% of my visitors. I then went to my host and checked to see how much of my host bill entrecard pays. Oddly enough, $0. So a semi-naked woman is offensive, but they’re fine with the Jizz in My Pants post and they’re fine with the Foul Mouth Shirts post. Good to go. OH MY GOD! I HAVE ONLY 72 HOURS TO RESPOND! I don’t respond very well to ultimatums- I went ahead and dumped the widget and account. Twitfall is and will continue to be a place where I post whatever the hell I want.

Here’s a novel idea. If you don’t like a website, move on. Not happy with a TV show? Change the channel. But you sanctimonious assholes who think you can define what’s right for everyone can enjoy a big steaming cup of…
Big Cup of STFU

Oh I suppose I’m overreacting- there are a some cool bloggers on entrecard- Julie, Fitz, Reggy, Diva, you know who you are. But if I had to read one more mommy blog about little billy spitting up I would have had to have taken my eyes out with my spoon. Shit, there I go being insensitive again…


So back to ads. Dave, an actual reader was concerned about the girls. I also didn’t much care for having to hover to close the ads, it wasn’t real intuitive. I’m debating going to self based advertising, doing a little house cleaning and I threw up a couple 125 x125s in the corner. Maybe a corner peel ad… something unobtrusive…

    Oh man. I can’t believe I missed when this happened. LOL They’re pure douches over there. I haven’t taken mine down yet but I will as soon as I get rid of the last of my credits – I sponsored some contest.

    LOL, well don’t bail on my account, there are a few good blogs on there, but wow what a time waster! Check out what they did to Turnip of Power. I just have a problem with a 125×125 adspace widget, which provides no monetary value, thinking it’s appropriate to dictate content…
