Beware the Evil Ad Bar

Posted on June 28, 2004


I just noticed that Blogspot, along with the seemingly harmless (but secretly insidious) Google, have collaborated to offer disinformation in the form of links placed in Ad Bars above our blogs. Taking key-words from entries, the Ad Bar offers convenient website links where you can get more information. While this may be something we have to live with to keep this thing free, please be aware that you may be steered towards websites advocating specious views.

This method of generating ad revenue might be harmless for those blogs dealing with Hi Fi’s and GameBoys, but it is a seriously bad idea for Google to think that political views are as interchangeable as cell phones. BOYCOTT THESE SITES! ’nuff said.
