I am violently opposed to advertising from sites like http://realtruth.org and note that they are pushing religious points of view under the pretext of writing ads for categories like Internet & Media/Computers and Technology. I would respectfully ask that such ads be filtered from our sites. I have been a paid customer on and off but I am rather offended by their use of your advertising service to promote religious conservatism.

Take careful note of the ads on the Livejournals you visit, people. These religious right-wing nuts are sneaky and virulently pervasive.

The ad in question:
Note, my apologies beforehand if my Livejournal is appearing again on the Fashion Planet feed when this change was not requested by me at all. I don't wish to discuss religion or politics in the feed, and I certainly didn't ask for Tao to add it again to Fashion Planet. However I think this issue of fundamentalist "stealth advertising" needs to be addressed so I am keeping this entry public, and emailing Tao to remove my personal blog.
