Ya know what Tom, I used to not mind you putting up these funny commercials because they did have some humor to them, but this piece of crap is nothing more than a really really bad ad for a Mazda.... you're obviously getting paid to post these pieces of crap because if you actually thought that was funny you must be a retarded walrus. I don't really mind you getting paid to post this crap, hell a buck is a buck and I'd totally do it too, but I wish you'd at least just admit it rather than always dodging questions about whether or not you do take cash for it. As for the flash it made me want to throw up..... preferably on you as punishment for posting the link to it :P
Apart from that though I am looking forward to Hominid, can't wait till you let lose some details on when it's coming out and systems and other such stuff.
I always assume it's obvious when I'm posting a blatant plug - casual surfers don't pick up on it, but regular visitors know what's up. I'm starting to realize that might not be the case, though.
I get some quick cash when I post those "viral commercial" links. It's not a lot, but it's enough to make it worth a one-sentence plug - and the content USUALLY is half-decent. :)
So here is what to look for - I will usually only link to stuff that is on NG, or stuff that is related to NG Flash contributors. If I post some random link to an unrelated site, it's most likely a "sponsored link". If I could do several per day, it would beat some of these other ads.
