the power of censorship

For the first few weeks there were never any ads on these pages except for hosting services. Suddenly there has been a rash of religious ads. This shows Google is checking the site. Unfortunately, two of them were from scientologists. I have now barred their sites from advertising here. A small, but gratifying exercise of power.

    I think you might have to block a few more…

    There’s an ad i’m looking at now on your site that promises ‘scientology improves educational problems with new study technology’…

    And now, of course, there’s this comment too. Sorry

    I now. It takes, they say, three or four hours for the change to propagate. I have three sites blacklisted so far, and will, when I have a complete list, post it for the benefit of other ad-sensible people.

    ‘… a complete list…’

    I bet they have more people thinking up new site names and registering them than you have spotting and blacklisting them. There’s another one up now –

    Hey hey. Yet another class of spam warfare!
