Topic: Changed Advertising
I have removed the dating / sex /drug related adverts from the site as I don't think these fit well with our desire for the site.
I have had a few emails asking to remove advertising, but we just cannot afford to do that, many cheep or free hosting services as have been suggested (I looked up the sites and spoke to there adimins) just cannot deal with the through put that the site now generates, And when we get to chapter 24 I expect an increase in that traffic.
Unfortunately the site is another expensive and as such we really can only afford to keep the site active without it generating some income to help offset the cost. The site currently generates about 20% of our expences back from advertising the rest come out of our pockets. I do understand that somepeople do find advertising annoying (offensive - hence why I have chosen to remove these topics) but until we can find some alternative form of income we are really left with no choice.
Please if you do not want to see advertising on the site you are welcome to donate to the site enough money to cover its expences and I will remove the adverts, But abusive emails and threats to boycotted/ hack / destroy its reputation do not make us wish to provide a free comic that personaly costs us money each year.
Sorry to everyone about the rant.
The spam that hit the shoutbox was not something that I had active control over, we deleted it as quickly as we could and we made changes to the site to stop it as quickly as was possible.
