My apologies for those inappropriate Google ads.


I have deleted my Google Adsense account from The Atheist Camel.  They were posting ads on this page that I found personally offensive from anti-Obama, to pro-life, to Jesus praising, etc. in spite of my trying to get those types of ads blocked.



It isn't worth the few dollars they'd pay me to whore my blog to mindless right-wing and religious crap.


My apologies if you were as offended as I.

I am about to do the same thing Hump! I too get those stupid ads on my blog and they tend to be religious in nature most of the time. Quite annoying if you ask me.

Chat..and it took me 20 minutes to figure out how to remove the ad they show between my posts since they don't give instructions for it. I had to figure it out on my own and I am so un-geek it was a nightmare. asshats!!!

Thanks for that. I did find the ads attempting to turn me to Jesus annoying.

Dromedary Hump said...

David..yeah..they were getting pretty bad. sorry.

Carl said...

They never bothered me.

Jim.. the one I saw about Obama and abortion by a Rand Paul site was the final straw.

I have adblock Plus, so I don't see many ads, and the ones I do get, I literally never see. I have never understood advertising on the net. My brain blocks them out and I see nothing.

In the day when conservative Proposition 8 (Revoking Same-Sex Weddings) was voted in California, Google Adsense published a swarm of anti-gay Mormon Church ads in most gay sites, causing outrage to the web site owners. When web-site owners complained, Google Adsense took 24 hours to remove the offensive religious preaching from the pages. Filthy bastards!

It's good to see someone with principles. I wish the worlds leaders and politicians took a leaf out of your book.

Good on ya, Hump.

p.s. This is a little late, but I want to thank you for your service in Vietnam.

My father and Uncle were in Vietnam. My Uncle died in his early 40's from bone cancer, which I believe was due to exposure to agent orange.

I didn't even notice, because of AdBlock.

Those google ads are not so good at targeting the ad content on sites that are anti-anything, because the ads almost always end up being for what you are criticizing. If you were writing about how evil Wall Street and stock trading was, you'd probably have a bunch of ads for free, no commission online stock trading. Google needs to get their shit together.
