Ads are a pain, and I get that sometimes they interfere with the site experience. I’m not a fan of that, so we are always looking for ways to keep the ad revenue and improve the experience. Ads help pay the bills but mostly allow us to bank money for bigger projects, needs, or site improvements. However!
We do not want ads that run contrary to our mission.
I received a message from one of our authors that they were seeing planned parenthood ads on page. I emailed the service that manages that stuff for us, and they very promptly blocked them, so if you did not see them, you will not (or should not).
They were very polite and prompt, resolving it for me overnight so homework time.
If you see ads on GraniteGrok that, like Planned Parenthood (Baby Killers), are just way off our plantation, we’d like to know about them. The faster way for us to address concerns is for you to email me. Let me know whose ad it is and if possible right click on that ad and send me the link.
Right-click, not left. A left click will send you to the ads landing page, which you are free to do for ads that interest you.
I will take a look, and if it is something we do not want to promote on our pages, I will have it blocked.
One more note. While it may take a while, our to-do list includes a VIP/subscription model that would create an ad-free experience. Those of you who donate monthly will eventually – no timetable yet, sorry – be able to visit and enjoy either premium subscriber-only stuff or the content without any ads mucking things us. Possibly both.
It’s on the list.
And, as always, thanks for reading!
