Advertising [Apr. 19th, 2006|01:03 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

If anybody feels compelled to comment in my journal about advertising on LiveJournal, use this post. Then at least I don't get a lot of off-topic comments in my other entries.

Yeah, I think it'd be fucking hilarious if every single ad was for either antidepressants, razor blades, or emo rock bands.

Probably better to put a note in your profile to keep comments on-topic. Unless the topic is random silliness, of course. =)

Ads suck. Particularly when I've root/super on one of the bigger ad resellers and have to fix their system when they break the database part... :)

Good move with those ads. Can we plug-in our own AdSense key, please?

I was wondering when that little gem would surface.

Thank you.

Now we (the users) have another way to access some of the really cool livejournal stuff that you work hard to develop.

Everyone can have their cake and eat it too. Cool features for those who don't mind ads and who can't pay.

Thank you!

i know this post was intended to discourage this but:

hi brad - it's belinda, you may/may not remember me. we built a raft together once when you came to visit the other brad.

the obvious solution is to tout a long list of sexual offenders who use livejournal to hunt innocent teeny boppers, then the local news networks will do your advertising for you.

anyway, i just wanted to say my piece about the sad overtake of myspace as the news-generating blog.

my friends always seem to get in trouble when they point out the sex offenders on the internet.

Give out free LJ vinyl stickers or at least sell them... I'd put one on my window!!!

\But not with the goat~~~!!!

Like get a year and get a sticker (the nice vinyl ones)!!! or a discount on products with LJ on them.. That’s the best form hands down!!!!!

Are you trying to tell me that Brad's a person? I don't think my brain can handle this. I'm gonna go lie down and put a paper bag over my head.

BTW, sticking with the free account here (if I switched it would be to paid, can't stand adds). I hope that the folks at Livejournal don't forget to continue passing on the dregs to us free-loaders just cause they are developing another group of freeloaders who actually help make money.

Guess hookers and blow don't go over well in the 6A office. Seems we all have to make sacrifices. *snicker*

Personally, I think the way you've chosen to do it (well from what i've read.. I've had a paid account for a long time now) seems to be rather tasteful. It's was inevitable for advertisements to happen as people always want more stuff for free, I'm just glad that I as a paid user don't have to see them, similar to the style of Slashdot.
