This is a portion of a screensnap just sent to me by @doctorlaura:
I do not pay to use WordPress. So they make their money by sometimes inserting ads into blogs. She just caught one of the times this has happened.
I never see any ads on my end nor am I ever told if any have been or will be inserted.
And I don’t make a cent off them. Not that I’d want to: I hate intrusive ads! And really, given some of the things I write, I think most advertisers would rather not be here. OK, make that all advertisers.
