The WordPress Ad Invasion – Or, Now I’m Pimping Hookers From Eastern Europe

December 6, 2012

Since a few days back my and other blogs here on WordPress.com have been featuring ads. I know this platform is free and you get what you pay for, but still, this a bit much.

I wouldn’t mind a few discrete ads relevant to the content of the blog, but these are large attention grabbing ads, selling things that clearly look like scams – “Earn 379 dollars a day using Google” – and “match making” ads which is an obvious euphemism for prostitution.

Is this the end of WordPress as we know it? If they keep this up I will seriously consider finding a new platform – and it won’t be WordPress.org.
