9. Does clicking them help, all by itself?
Or do you have to buy something from the destination site?

Another forum I've visited only gets $$ if the clicker buys a product through the advertised website.

11. Skinner specifically asked that we not do that.
Only click if you're truly interested. Anything else is dishonest, and may actually hurt DU's revenue if fraudulent clicking is detected.

3. I click on the right-wing ads.
Google picks up key words in our posts like "newsmax".

Reflects this in the ads. I click on them to support DU and cost right-wing advertisers money.

click-it. several times a day. helps chase the fascists away.

7. None...
I live in the land of depression. There's far too little to even TRY anymore!

I come here to DU just to see what new rep-off is occurring! Probably not the best medicine for depression!

I sometimes wish my name was Rip Van Winkle!

12. Since you asked
Edited on Fri May-26-06 11:58 AM by Wickerman
I clicked on one earlier and it is everything I come to DU to find:

Ironweed films:

DVDs by mail. Each month they package a topic group of documentaries on DVD and send it out. $14.95. Pretty good set of progressive issues each month. This month is sex education is schools. They've had an I/P set of films, illegal alien set, elections, and so forth. Each month there is a petition that addresses the issues contained. Can't vouch for the content of all, but it seems like good stuff. Anyone have any experience? This is something I can use for work, so double bonus. I recall reading about Ironwood at some past point, but this was a nice reminder. This is the picture that accompanied their write up for the accompanying petition on Sex Ed.



http://www.ironweedfilms.com/petition/may2006

Together, we the undersigned:
* Urge the President and Congress to stop supporting abstinence-only-until marriage educationeducation that restricts information about contraception beyond failure rates.

* Urge the President and Congress to support responsible sex educationeducation that teaches young people about both abstinence and contraception.

13. I did click on one that interested me.
It was for an outfit called (if I remember correctly) "Advocacy Inc." They offer services for political campaigning, grassroots efforts, etc. They offer voter lists, something called "phone bank in a box", and other similar things. I clicked because the ad interested me and I've actually bookmarked it as something that may be useful at some point. That is the kind of ad I like seeing on here.

15. I understand the need to make money, but why the hell would any DUer want
to enroll in the military feeling the way we do about the current administration's misuse of the military?

So why is there an ad there? I mean who is going to click it???

18. Mistakenly only, when they were between places
between OP and replies, amidst topics on forum pages, etc. That was annoying.
