I'm finding the "sit here and watch this ad before the journal entry loads" advertising here on LiveJournal annoying.

Seems like a lot of my other friends on here have left. Is it time to jump ship?

Well, if you do jump ship, please let the peanut gallery know where you jump to so we can follow.

I definitely will leave a pointer to where I go, if I leave.

I keep hoping that the Russians who bought LiveJournal will start doing some neat things. For a while there, it seemed like LiveJournal might have been the red-headed stepchild the parent company didn't care for. (I don't remember who that was.)

I haven't seen any advertising, and I'm not a paid account. I think the ad blocker app I added to my Mozilla browser did that.

Having said that, I've been posting much less frequently since I settled into a Facebook friends' list that suits me. Not quite ready to delete it yet though :)

I'd wondered if it these advertisements hadn't been blocked by Ad Block Plus I used to have installed. I got a new computer, and haven't installed it, yet.

I've been told that people who have read this think that the ads give me money. That's why I added the "I don't get any money from the advertisements on this site. That all goes to LiveJournal" bit on the right of my pages.
