The Triangle Anarchist website: sponsored by big pharma

I visited the Triangle-area anarchist website to see what they're planning next, and was surprised to find advertising!  Why, that's capitalist, and the first ad was from big pharma.   How can you be anti-capitalist, and then make use of "free" online services that are actually paid for by advertising?




Thanks for this.

That is fun. Unlike with Ruby and OP, I have never tried to set up a blog myself, so I have no idea if you can find a free hosting site that is devoid of ads or at least gives you control over ad content. My guess is most sites have terms like the one, (Automattic), chosen by this group: "Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased an Ad-free Upgrade or a VIP Services account." Which is harder on anarchist, being "sponsored" by Big Pharma, or paying for a higher class of service?

Its not that hard to set up your own website that's free of advertising.  There's open source blogging software that's open source and completely free, all you need is a cheap computer and a net connection.
