A Quick Word On Those Fucking Ads Intruding Upon Comments

You may have noticed some adverts appearing in the comments section lately. This is because Disqus has started shoving them in and charging users to have them removed.

I cannot apologize enough for this. I’m sorry for the inconvenience and the current inability to guarantee against what this site usually guarantees against.

I’m fiercely proud of my website’s ad-free policy and I feel incredibly intruded upon.

I’ve always liked the service Disqus provided, and would have considered paying for a premium service of some kind, but I’m not going to fork over money after feeling strongarmed like that. What a horrible sales tactic.

We’re going to be importing comments to a new system soon. Until then, Adblock the shit out of my site if you please.

We’ll get the ads blasted ASAP, and I’ll say no more until the Jimquisition I’ve got planned about my constant fight against advertising.

That picture just makes me miss Sir Cristopher Lee. He has a Metal album, you know. And he also narrated for Rhapsody of Fire.

I mean… On one hand, it’s a free service. On the other, these ads seem a bit toss.
My site isn’t big at all, but I guess I’ll research FOSS self-hosted solution and migrate to one of those.

I have my computer set up like I’m still on DSL. Block all major ad channels, block metric trackers, block pop-ups and redirects, and wipe everything when closed.

As I said before, I didn’t even know what people were talking about when they kept discussing ads on your site.
Then I realize that for once ABP was functioning correctly. Thank the goddess for no small favors.

Oh shit, I see them now. I had to disable adblock. Yikes, that’s intrusive as fuck.

Disqus announced this a few months ago, they started rolling out ads in February – but only on sites they deem “big enough” (after tons of uproar from smaller sites, this has been a big issue in the webcomic community for example). But yeah, it’s a shitty move and I can imagine your frustration if you didn’t know this beforehand.

Wow, it’s really clotted with absolutely shit ads.
Nice move, Disqus. Drive that traffic away and get Jimsaw after you.

I’m just clicking “Report Ad” on every single one just to add irritating chaff.

I smell an incoming Bonus Jimquisition this week. Good times.

You mean that you don’t post content about how to lose my belly fat or the secret investment trick my broker never told me about? And here I thought you were branching out.

Pretty funny that as I read the comment section, it’s broken up by three ads.

I adblock everything anyway, I sling some patreon coin to the folk I watch most.

Do they even give you a cut of the revenue from those ads? It’s already disgusting even if they do, but it’s monstrous if they don’t.
