Guinness Makes Your Poop Black

Now that I have your attention I want to address a subject I wrote about a few months ago: advertising on our site.

We really don't have a problem with advertising. There is that whole issue of being honest but not forthright, but hey who are we to split hairs. Oh, yeah, we run this blog. Its just, if you are going to post an ad for say "Cat Furniture" come out and ask us and let us have a bit of your profit.

Lately we've gotten comments from people who sound genuine and we want to believe they are. They just don't all sound 100% like real people. If you like the stuff we have here, great, that's what it's for. If you lead in that you like us and then tell people to buy your cat furniture we have to question your motives.

We keep the comment field open because we like discussion, we're absurd. If you want to get people to your site because you want to sell something come out and say it. Look at the title of this entry, it's declarative and neither specifies a positive nor a negative effect of drinking Guinness. It does, however, have nothing to do with what I'm writing here. We can draw a similarity to your ads.

If you want to advertise on our site do one of two things. If you advertise in the comment field announce that you are advertising, then blow smoke up our ass and tell us how cool we are. If you want to legitimately advertise on our site ask us. I'm sure we could work out something with our provider and what not.

For everyone else who reads us don't be shy. Drop us a line and leave your name. Feedback is welcome and needed in our otherwise loveless lives.

Dave, I thought the point of advertising was deception, ergo the problem we are having. Although the deception of people reading this blog would be nice.

So, if you made it back to this page after January 2006 you'll have notcied that their are some restrictions on commenting here. It's mostly to stop Cat Furniture guy. So far it's worked. Continue to read and let us know what you think.
