About Those Audio Ads...

A couple people have e-mailed me about advertisments on Wizbang playing audio. I myself did not see (or hear) the ads that included audio, but I have acted to remove all of our ads from the network I suspect served the ads. Their ads were not supposed to include audio unless it was user requested, which clearly appears not to have been the case. The ads, as well as the entire network, are gone from this site, and will not return.

Good for you! I didn't run into any of the ads, myself, but it's good that you put the consideration of your audience above mere commercialism.

I know I'm good, but when they announced that I had one before I had even wrote my caption contest entry, I knew something was up.

Thanks, Kevin. The ones I hated were the mini-Youtube ads - you couldn't mute them!

Thanks Kevin. I know you got to make money, but some ads drive readers away. Besides the audio ads, the ones that flash insistently go beyond any reasonable standard. In particular the one that keeps proclaiming the same lie that I'm the 100,000 visitor.

Some sites. such as Weather Underground, use the ad annoyance effect to sell an ad free annual membership for $5.00. A price I gladly pay.

I'm not sure that model would work on a blog, but besides no ads you could offer other "member only" functionality such as being able to post images within comments.

Thank you!... (Below threshold)

And noticifiers.

Personally, I've been driven to the more tailored Opera browser (with its handy Quick Preferences menu) when viewing Wizbang for the last few weeks. Java script:OFF.

P.S. Keep Maggie Whitten and Odin impersonators buried and I'll help you on the click-side!
