Google’s AdWords suck for internet security AND content generators


in Economics, Geek stuff, Internet matters, Rants, Security

Having ads on this site is pretty awful for several reasons.

The site is plugged into Google via both analytics and advertising. For people not running an ad blocking plugin, this often leads to ads which are unappealing and often offensive.

If you don’t want Google to know everything you (or everyone with access to your machine) do online, you’re going to need to make a big effort and do a lot of research into, like, cryptographic and technical means of confounding state surveillance.

If you would pay one cent a year or more to support an ad-free site, please leave a comment.

Yes, I would gladly support an advertisement-free environmental site.

I am looking into Patreon as an alternative to advertising.

Collectively, my websites and Flickr cost about US$150 per year to run.
