As you may have noticed, wordpress has begun placing ads on our posts. Undoubtedly, this is due to the extremely heavy traffic that this blog has been generating. Now, we are entirely comfortable with selling out, make no mistake about that. But wordpress is not paying us one dime to splatter our illuminating prose with this smut that they call advertising.
To be clear, this isn’t just an urge to be rich. We would be completely comfortable with payment in “internet dollars”. While “internet dollars” currently do not have any actual value (according to those liberal-leaning think-tanks known as “Banks”), we would be happy to begin accruing our “internet fortune” as soon as possible.
So in closing, if you find an ad on this page and want to do your best to make sure that the authors of this blog get their fair share of internet quarters/dimes, please do one of the following:
- Write an angry email to wordpress expressing your anger that they are using some poor college students to make money, probably just to fund their expensive cocaine and dayquil habits
- Boycott wordpress and never read this blog, or any other blog hosted by wordpress, until they agree to pay internet dollars to their bloggers
- Please sign this petition in hopes that we can finally bring change
- Just don’t click on the advertisement
