Just a comment that the Thrive Market ad I keep seeing on your web page here is a pretty scammy set-up. No idea if you’ve any control over its appearance here or not, but they give an awesome deal for a sample or whatever but then do not mention until the very last page in check-out, and at this, in tiny print, that you are also signing up for a hefty annual charge. With the usual 30 days to opt out, but if you don’t see it then you won’t know.

So guess I am curious if this is an approved ad, or just something that shows because of the blog system or what?
