>"4th: The system rotates, i.e., WP blogs A, B, C have AdSense now, later they will be gone and blogs X, Y, Z will have ads. So: it's not permanent."
>I haven't heard point 4 before -- is that what support told you?
No, didn't get that from reply; got from:
-My understanding of [Mark's link]: http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/09/06/on-ads/
and replies in that thread.
-i.e. " We very occassionally show Adsense (contextual text ads) on post and tag pages"
-i.e. "They’re already blocked for regular visitors and people who are logged in"
-From my experience: between my first post about this, 1st week of January, and this Forum post --I checked a few times (without cookies) and that content --No Ads. Then: ads appeared again.
-Plus: when I looked at blog of Flawedplan: No ads.
I could have wrong understanding, about rotating ads/blogs, and if so: Could Admin. pop in and clarify, please.
>"Poppy, WP can do whatever it wants, and you can burn down your neighbor's house, see? Now, getting back to matters of relevance"
I don't get what you wrote, your point. Is that sarcasm? If you Have read entire thread: the Point IS that WP CAN do what they choose, on THEIR system.
Me: I got no interest in 'burning down' houses....
--Attacking my reply to you? People in the Forum Don't have control/ability to Change A Thing. lol, Your energy/anger: better-spent on those who Have control --of your blog (lol)
Are you looking for sympathy? Odd way to ask.
You look Maahveloss! Who did your hair?
As for third-party hosted: I have my own website --with a hosted WP blog --that looks EGGZACTLY the way it did when I first got it nine months ago, cuz NO CLUE how to do a Thing with it. The WP.org "instructions": can't be understood, by mere humans...I don't have translator, or enough aspirin, to work on it, anymore.
>"The Site That Must Not Be Named"
--It's a parody/take-off of: "Rumpole at the Bailey" --a character, in novel & PBS series, who was married to: She Who Must Be Obeyed. --Wank has de-lish Brit humor, doncha know.
