We’re contemplating eliminating promoting, a lot to the fanfare of many readers. In contrast to the favourite meme of the left that we’re within the make use of of “large oil” the truth is that we aren’t, by no means have been, and by no means will likely be. WUWT’s “large oil” donations are about as actual and helpful as these carbon credit score certificates.
We don’t get that a lot from promoting, and currently it looks like it has develop into too intrusive, and slows down the location. If truth be told, our advert companion 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 get rid of the promoting, we might be shifting to a donation assist mannequin and will likely be encouraging donations extra often. A few of you’ve already setup month-to-month donations, and for that we’re very grateful.
After all 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 nice assist we obtain, each in emails and feedback, and naturally on your beneficiant monetary contributions as effectively.
