In recent times, WordPress has made the decision to intrude upon their users by the addition of forced advertising to their blogs. Upon doing this, WordPress now expects users to pay an annual fee of $30.00 per blog, which will remove all advertising and return the site back to it’s original unpolluted appearance.
As this site has, is and always will be a non-profit, non-commercial, educational resource. No money what so ever will be paid to remove the scourge of advertising to now be found on this site; and in no way should any money ever be made from this site or any other personal/educational blog site by WordPress or any other individual/group.
As a response to this I strongly encourage all readers to install and run an Ad-Blocking plugin while using their web browser. This will ensure your browsing experience is clean from unwanted advertising pollution, as these ads for the most part are unwholesome, unhealthy and not endorsed by any blog author.
Please consider installing in your web browser:
Adblock Plus (ABP) is an open-source content-filtering and ad blocking extension for Mozilla Firefox (including Firefox for mobile), Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari web browsers and Android devices. Source
To all fellow WordPress authors, please feel free to use the above “No-Ads” graphic on your own personal* blog site to protest this accursed advertising scourge forced upon us.
(* Must be a non-profit / non-commercial blog site)
