Hump Day Kvetching

So, you may have noticed a short-lived banner ad at the top of the page here. I (retardedly) decided to listen to the people who have suggested that I make some attempt to cash in on the not-trivial traffic I get. Unfortunately, seeing as how I’m apparently blacklisted by Adsense (probably because the content here isn’t “family-safe,” but who fucking knows; Google is a black box) I went with a lesser provider. The results were less than stellar, so I’ve pulled the whole thing. Why the fuck is this shit so difficult?
