Conservative, My Ass

In the past week or so I've noticed that several of the blogs I regularly read are featuring a blogAd for "Discrete Partners Only." The ad further clarifies its intent by noting that their services are for cheaters that are "Married and Looking" or "Separated and Looking."

I understand wanting to make a profit from your blogging—I certainly have ads here, and have gone as far as posting links to gambling sites—but you cross a line when you advocate the dissolution of marriage and inevitable fragmentation of families.

Conservative values, obviously, have a price.

Most of the rotating ad sites don't give the blogger a choice. The services push whatever they feel like taking money for pushing.

Not true in this instance, Michael. BlogAds gives bloggers a notice of the ads that advertisers would like to run, and bloggers have the option of declining them, as I have in the past.

Amen Brother, I saw those ads and I was totally shocked that so-called "Conservatives" would even run ads like that.

I used to be on blogads myself. That is until one fine day; I decided to complain about their third rate server that was so slow that it would Time out when I tried to edit anything.

All of the sudden, I was dumped from BlogAds because of my abusiveness. Yeah right, I complained and someone actually had to work for their paycheck and they got pissed and dumped me.

Anyhow, I no longer use them. Only stuff I have for ads anymore is Adsense, only thing that really actually pays anymore.

Just an FYI...

Uncle ( talked about this a few days ago when this ad appeared on his blog. He had told the ad service not to run it, but then it appeared anyway.

Nope. No choice. I mean, I could remove the code I guess. But I never approved the ad. Sent an email saying pull it. Nothing yet.

An ad doesn't indicate advocacy of any kind.

Plus, conservatives have affairs. Some times even gay ones.

Discrete? As opposed to what, a multitude of partners, or twins?

Interesting to know. I have seen them on other blogs and thought they were out of place. Im pretty new to the blogging world, but if there's a way to get rid of them I'd surely like to know before they pop up on mine.

I do not know how blog ads work, but I do know very well how temptation and sin work. None of us is free from either, but it is wonderful to hear someone willing to stand up and fight for purity, no matter its form.

With humble appreciation, I thank you.

Discrete -having a specific (countable) number of partners- as opposed to discreet -having an un-recorded number of partners?

Sorry. Couldn't resist.
