We're Getting Spammed

You might have noticed a few "this comment has been deleted by the blog administrator" remarks in our comments lately. Apparently, our blog has been noticed by some spammers and I've been deleting their comments because I don't think you should get bad ads or links to possible viruses and other nasties from our blog.

What do you think? Do you get spammed on your email/blog/Facebook account? Is my deleting the comments censorship, or just good blog maintenance?

It's an Ad-Venture

Advertisments really are everywhere...even on your backpack! Do flashy ads on your favorite websites bug you? Do we really need ads to read while riding the bus? Check out and go on a real-life adventure to learn what you're being sold and what you can do about it. Or leave a note in the comments telling us about the most annoying ad you've seen lately.
