I personally hate ads but figure it's the price I pay for getting free content. Hosts have to make money somehow.

We hate ads too... we make no money running this site.
Some vendors offer discounts here.. but that is purely for your benefit. We receive nothing from it, all we do get is a link to the Den on there website.

[rant] Absolutely. Let them determine how much they have to make, and directly charge me. I pay small amounts ($5 to $15 a year) on several sites to be free of ads. Sites with inflated ideas about their importance (to me) that charge more, I simply do without. I do without sites that block me when I am running AdBlock. Sites that want to track me and discover that they can't because I am running Privacy Badger, I do without those as well. If there is a way to contact those sites while avoiding ads, I let them know why I can do without their services. I REALLY hate ads. There must be others like me because the majority of small newspapers have failed after they became mostly ad-sheets.

There have been several proposed systems to allow micropayments - a few pennies, or even fractions of pennies, aggregated into a regular (daily, weekly, monthly) charge (to consumer) or payment (to provider) that keeps track of exactly how much the consumer uses the services of each provider. If I want to see something from The Guardian or the New York Times I get to see a headline and the first few sentences, but if I want to see the whole article, I get a popup that lets me authorize a payment of 5 or 10 cents/pence to see the rest of the article AD FREE.

Advertising has gone from a mere providing of information about what is available and where it can be found, to a form of micro-brainwashing. It's not surprising that this has happened, because there is serious money to be made BY THE PEOPLE WHO WRITE ADS. It's not only the sellers of objects or information who are making all the money, it's the ad writers, who are selling not only the objects or information, but the VERY IDEA of manipulative advertising.

With search engines like Google and Bing there is no real need for advertising (for anyone but ad writers). Let sellers compete by quality, price, and service. The search engines can also provide the crowd-rating of sellers by those very qualities. [/rant]

I do this often enough that I just made a folder on my computer called "Opinion" where I can keep copies of rants like this for future expansion and refinement. I frequently find that I want to express an opinion on something like this and it would be convenient to have a supply of carefully thought out text on various subjects. This rant is the first (of very likely a great many) of such rants in my Opinion folder.

I keep re-thinking this whole Minikin V2 thing.  It has to be a performance thing at the higher watts or a defective unit.  I'm using mine 24/7 and it still pumps out the flavor from my Nautiluses.  I had a night where I couldn't find the Minikin and went back to the Cuboid, and could tell the difference immediately.  Searched the whole apartment, even the trash.  Next day I found it just sitting there in the console of the car. :)) :)) :))
