You know what? The guy deserves the money they had to pay for those ads.

Just my opinion.

I destroyed a man's computer when I discovered he was gold farming for IGE! I cannot ignore these things!

The 'paying money for pixels/polygons is stupid' principle, the 'they're exploiting poor asian people' principle, or the 'OMFGWTFBBQ!!!11 that CGF just ninja'ed my rich thorium deposit!!11 fuk'n farmers r ruining the game!!' principle?

I think you forgot the "it supports Chinese communism" principle!

(Seriously, I like things existing as games that are totally separate from real life. I despise games that suddenly become about who has the most money to dump on the game in order to be the best. Which is what IGE is all about. Sure, argue about the time involved all you want, but at least you're playing the game during that time.)

(Okay, on second thought, the Chinese communism thing isn't as big of a joke as it seems. Making money through Internet games and having a percentage of those profits go to a government that has basically survived the past 15 years by heavily censoring the Internet strikes me as horribly ironic. Bad ironic.)

Sorry? What for?

Personally, I use adblock with filterset.g & some custom regexps, i'm doing nothing wrong. Advertizers are using my bandwidth and screen real estate on my computer for something I have no intrest in - I have no moral obligation whatsoever to view them. Feh.

See, if I see an ad I don't support, I don't click it.

I tend to let webcomic ads through, but that's mainly because webcomic ads have a tendancy to not suck. When they do start to suck, and suck consistantly, I tend to block them. Usually, though, they have to be something stupid, like "OMG MORTGAGE!" or "WIN A FREE IPOD!" or "OMG SEX!". The IGE ad just makes me laugh a bit, and since S*P ads don't have a history of suckage, I think I'll leave it.

I don't filter ads because they pay for things. I can stand it as long as they don't make noise. Just think, the "WIN A FREE PS3 FOR A SURVEY AND BY SURVEY I MEAN MORE ADS" advertisers are evil. If they pay per exposure rather than per click, then they are paying for people to use their bandwidth for no gain because nobody clicks on those things any more. So in a sense they are paying to be evil. You can ignore them, not click on them, and laugh at them for paying for you to laugh at them.

*Checks the price of gold and accounts available for his server*
I laugh. :lol:
500 gold for 25$... shit... I managed to get at least 5 plat (1 plat = 100 gold) in the last 5 days I played my char. And the Conjurer they had up for sell... it's not even a lvl 60 artisan in anything!

But hey! He's getting paid for the ads. That's always a good thing for webcomic artists/ :D

That's why I accepted them. Because causing pain thrills me.

I woke up.

And I said, "I wish to hurt the Baron. I will run IGE ads."

Then I choked a puppy for sexual release.

Now I get to try to figure out if you really are Randy Milholland, or just a n00b who's prentending to be him.

It is him. Trust me on this. Don't expect him to be a regular, though. I don't, at least. If he does, hey, its all good.

That was my thought, but then I asked myself, "What kind of sarcastic bastard would a person have to be to write S*P?" So I figured it was, indeed, possible.
