HYST Generic Discussion Thread

If you listen to John’s Rum Doings podcast (it’s quite good, actually), it’s clear that he’s a long term reader of BB who isn’t a fan of the amount of sponsored posts/affiliate links/Big Silicon posts. They talked about it a few episodes ago.

Not being a fan is one thing; saying that BoingBoing is a “sad corpse” implies that it has failed and is not a going concern – that’s a traffic-based assertion.

What I’ve found today is that even when RPS is fully whitelisted in AdBlock & ABP (not sure why I have both…), I still don’t get any adverts, presumably becuase Disconnect is blocking Taboola from tracking me.

Is that the way the ad vendors work? If they can’t track you, they won’t serve anything?

Glad you enjoyed–“Save a pretzel for the gas jets” in this one took me by surprise and had me crying. Beautiful stuff!

EDIT: Oh dear forgot the fricken link.
