Ads on LJ

First, a disclaimer: I'm a paid user, so I don't see ads anywhere. So you should probably take my opinion with the grain of sand it probably deserves.

Secondly, some news: There's been a slow roil about the TOS regarding ads, specifically, that Ad-Blockers are not allowed. Turns out that this was a bit of a screw-up on the part of LJ. They have issued an apology with an explanation that use of ad-Blockers will not get you TOS'd because:

  • They can't tell if you're using an Ad-Blocker anyway
  • A lot of software (like Firefox) have ad-blockers pre-installed that can't be removed
  • People do not use the same computers all the time to access LJ (i.e., work, school, and home computers are all used), so you don't always have control over what's installed on the computer you're using.


I suppose that means a new TOS will be forthcoming.

Now, I'm going to go against the grain of opinion and say that I honestly can't see what the big deal about ads on LJ actually is.

I've got nothing against companies making a profit, not even LJCollapse )

I'll be over here in the corner wearing my asbestos underwear...
