So I tried to sign up for Google’s AdSense program. (Cause all the cool kids are doing it and my goal in life is to riddle this site with advertisements.) But they shot me down. Why, you ask? “Chat sites, personal pages, search engines, sites that contain predominately copyrighted material, and sites that drive traffic through cybersquatting,” are all, apparently, verboten from participating. Now most of these are understandable and I can even see why Google would screen some personal sites. But I can’t help but notice that a number of “personal” sites coughDerek Powazek/cough somehow coughSteven Frank/cough got through. Not that I particularly care. I just wanted to try it out.
