A few flies in the ointment

As part of my continuing education in the ways of the Internet, I decided to give blog ads a spin today.

They're context sensitive -- picking up on what I post and serving up ads accordingly. Smart.... but not smart enough.

Below is the ad first placed here in response to the preceding post.
I am guessing that y'all are not the target audience for Christian filtering.

On the other hand, maybe I'm reading it wrong. Perhaps there are those among you who are looking for a tool that can effectively block Christians.

Now that you have added the ads to your blog template, you can have it "learn" your blog by going into Blogger and have it "rebuild entire blog" on the Posting/Status page. This will rebuild all of your old posts with the new template, adding the ads to all of your old pages. Then the ad thingy will get a better feel for what's posted at this blog and make better suggestions.

A Christian-filter sounds nice, but then so much of the comedy would disappear from my internets.

Thanks for the tip, RandyH. Less fun now, but the first iteration might have scared newbies away.

Maybe someone has a jew-bashing filter? Right wing propoganda filter?
Michelle Malkin filter?

I don't have ads because my Number Two Son would stop giving me items or even reading my web log, but if I had ads, then my readers would be able to enjoy all the delicious strangeness of string search that results in ads for "Christian blocking" when you write about .

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure retroactively applying ads to all my items is pretty grating and it's an annoyance to think that simply rebuilding the web log would put ads all the way back to the beginning.
