Thus Ends the Great Adsense Experiment
February 4th, 2006

I install Adblock on all my machines, so I wasn’t seeing any of the ads on my own site. I had thought they were all going to be hilariously off-topic (one that stood out was some guy named “Dan Poynter” plugging his small business), but apparently not. It didn’t occur to me that if I wrote articles decrying pet psychics that Google would plaster ads for palm readings all over my site, but in retrospect that was obviously the only possible result. It turns out that the money isn’t worth looking like an idiot.
