We've had an anti-advertisement lean all along, but you'll see even fewer advertisements around here soon. Among other things, I've been inspired by the comically ridiculous levels of advertising in Catalog Living's syndicated feed (in the interest of load-time, I've truncated the feed to just the most recent item here):
I'll be doing some research on advertising in the next few months, and the goal, at least for now, is to move toward a The Consumerist model of full editorial control and no advertising revenue.
You'll also see some protection against spambots. Those creepy-crawlers really like Vasegurt's Review of Comic Culture, so we've added Pix-CAPTCHA to the un-registered commenting process on that site.
