I’ve eliminated all the affiliate advertising from this site. This is in response to an article written by Andrew Kleske of the North County Times:
Andrew made a comment about advertisements on many of the other bubble blogs. Some see this as a source of potential bias or a conflict of interest. Because of this, the ads must go. I do n0t want to give any journalist ammunition against what I’m saying. This is something your local newspaper or news website won’t ever consider (think of the thick Sunday real estate section).
Just to clear the slate, I have not made a single dollar through any of the advertising on this website. Previously, when using Google Adsense, I did make accumulate approximately 8 dollars, however Google took the money back and deleted my account due to “complaints of inappropriate content”. How fitting.
