We are currently testing some advertising options on the site. The advertisements will only appear on the article pages themselves. They do not appear on the home page.
We will use this revenue stream to help pay for server costs, new features, maintenance, bug fixes and also to help with projects such as free child care at a number of conferences, The Out Campaign, The Clergy Project, work on a global secular network calendar, the Spanish RD.net site and upcoming releases of rd.net in other languages - these are sites are run by native speakers of those languages who not only translate a few of the Original articles but also post links relevant to their culture and associated parts of the world.
If you have specific ads you feel are inappropriate, please create a screen shot and file a ticket using the gold feedback button as that is then forwarded to all of us on the tech team.
This blog post can serve as a place for general disccusion. If you want to provide written feedback only to RDFRS please use the gold feedback button at the bottom left of the screen. We will be reading the comments here if you'd like everyone, including RDFRS staff, to see them.
