The League Totally $@%*ing Sells Out!
So, recently RHPT.com added advertising to RHPT.com. It's his personal blog and, like The League, the blog is Randy's personal gift to humanity.
Randy was attacked in his comments section, and responded here.
The biggest accusation? RHPT.com had lost his indie street cred (which, with $2.50 will get you a cup of coffee), and had TOTALLY $@%*ing sold out. To, I assume, The Man.

The League loves doing anything with will make Jim D. sigh with resignation, and so has applied to join Google AdSense himself.
What, indeed, IS the earning potential of The League of Melbotis? Thus far The League has received goods and services from Loyal Leaguers, and hopes to receive more free stuff in the future. However, The League is morbidly curious to see, exactly, what can come of this.
So, The League decided to see what can happen with the profit-making potential of the internet (thanks, Al Gore!). Especially when you select the biggest ad type which won't totally jack-up your formatting?
The League turns to his usual financial advisor for advice on whether or not this will work.
I do plan to fill in Loyal Leaguers as to the processes and windfalls of my advertising here.
1. I applied to AdSense
2. They e-mailed me back a day later to say "welcome" and provide instructions.
3. The directions are relatively simple to get this thing up and online.
4. I have no idea how I'm actually going to get paid for this, or even what the math is on click-throughs.
5. It doesn't really matter. It's all in good fun.
I have noticed that Google has already done a crawl here at The League. We're now schilling Superman costumes and Justice League outfits.
I've also gone aheaded and added a web-search, courtesy of Our Dread Lord, Google. Have fun with that.
It's capitalism, ahoy! here at the S.S. Melbotis!
