FAQ: What happens when I choose to “Suppress Ads” on Salon?

Posted on February 14th, 2018 at 15:50 by John Sinteur in category: News


For our beta program, we’ll start by applying your processing power to mine cryptocurrencies to recoup lost ad revenue when you use an ad blocker.  We plan to further use any learnings from this to help support the evolution and growth of blockchain technology, digital currencies and other ways to better service the value exchange between content and user contribution.

Although this isn’t something ad blockers are unable to block (if they aren’t already) it is funny how they always present this as a binary choice: view adds, or do this other thing we want. They always forget option 3: never bother coming to the site again. So, with that in mind I’d just like to say: Salon and thanks for all the phish!

Pastor was ‘counseling’ the young, naked man tied up in his car, he says

In the front seat of the car, police said they found quite the sight.

A man was sitting in the passenger’s seat completely naked, according to a criminal complaint obtained by KDKA. The only thing he was “wearing” was the nylon rope tied around him.

In the back seat of the car was George Gregory, a 61-year-old pastor at a church in West Homestead, Penn., police said. When police walked up to the vehicle, they said they could see Gregory rearranging his clothing, WPXI reports.

Aaaah, counseling… is that what they call it these days?
