In between posts about my project, I thought It’d be a waste not to post the gem I just discovered while on the Internet. I was visiting Joomla.org while I was greeted by an advertisement – that’s already rare as I usually block any and all ads. The ad was promoting… oh, well, you’ll see for yourself.
Why yes, that IS an ad on Joomla.org trying to sell me Drupal Hosting, and thus promoting Drupal. Is someone trying to get a message accross?
Interesting fact: I saw this happen before, on Computertaal – a WordPress based blog / site on anything computer related. One of our authors had written an article on Briskl – which is basically just a WordPress install with a theme slapped onto it – because it’s a product of our main sponsor. When I visited the page, Google ads showed me an add, promoting… yes, another “cheap website concept”, also from Belgium.
Oh, Ads, you naughty boys, you.
