We are contemplating eliminating promoting, a lot to the fanfare of many readers. Unlike the favourite meme of the left that we’re within the make use of of “big oil” the truth is that we aren’t, by no means have been, and by no means might be. WUWT’s “big oil” donations are about as actual and beneficial as these carbon credit score certificates.
We don’t get that a lot from promoting, and currently it looks as if it has turn out to be too intrusive, and slows down the location. In actuality, our advert associate is serving extra adverts than ever earlier than for even much less returns. It’s seemingly the legislation of diminishing returns in motion.
If we do eradicate the promoting, we’d be shifting to a donation help mannequin and might be encouraging donations extra repeatedly. Some of you’ve got already setup month-to-month donations, and for that we’re very grateful.
Of course each Charles and I are curious how our viewers will reply so we arrange these two polls to assist in our strategic planning.
Thanks once more for all the good help we obtain, each in emails and feedback, and naturally in your beneficiant monetary contributions as properly.
