Ads Update

Yesterday, Shakers Stephen Harred and Clár Uí Ríain generously helped identify the source of the video pop-up ads. It was Site Meter—the traffic counter I have been using nearly the entire time I've been blogging, and for whose service I pay a monthly fee for an upgraded account.

I've removed Site Meter's code from the site, so hopefully no one will get any more pop-up ads. Again, I want to apologize for the ads ever being here.

My profound thanks to Stephen Harred and Clár Uí Ríain for their help, and to everyone who sent me emails or left comments that helped with pinpointing the source. Thank you so, so much.

As for Site Meter, I submitted a ticket to them requesting some accountability for piggybacking on my traffic in order to serve ads for which I was not paid while I was paying them for their service. They have not replied.
