Why we don't advertise
While we are very appreciative of the offers to advertise with us, we have made the decision to not feature any advertising on our site.
We gave serious consideration to this opportunity.
Ultimately, while it would have been great to be able to provide some pay to our volunteer writers (i.e. ourselves) and expand our offerings, a vote led to the decision that accepting paid advertising would have a negative impact on our ability to remain impartial.
Many media outlets rely completely on advertising in order to exist. These outlets are inherently conflicted between impartial editorial decisions and the need to not piss off their advertisers.
This is especially true of media outlets that rely heavily on government advertising in order to survive.
We will be revisiting our policy on advertising in the future and are wide open to suggestions on how we could accept paid adverts whilst also remaining impartial.
