Blog Note

[Content Note: Fat hatred; disablism.]

Some of you emailed me to let me know that you were suddenly seeing ads on the page earlier today. Apparently, Disqus started some new revenue program, which was defaulted to opting in. I have now turned them off.

But, for some reason, the ads are still appearing. I have tweeted at Disqus about it, but so far I have received no response.

I have already seen ads about weight loss and a pop culture story using disablist language in its headline. This is precisely why I run Shakesville as an ad-free space.

My apologies to anyone who has seen these ads. I am working to get them removed.

Shakesville is run as a safe space. First-time commenters: Please read Shakesville's Commenting Policy and Feminism 101 Section before commenting. We also do lots of in-thread moderation, so we ask that everyone read the entirety of any thread before commenting, to ensure compliance with any in-thread moderation. Thank you.
