    hubs with the insertion of Ads and Amazon product links?

    Isn't it akin to putting a coke a cola sticker on the Mona Lisa?

    I have stayed awake many nights pondering this issue.. and the moral and ethical implications of 'selling out' in this way.

    No doubt that the Nobel prize folks have overlooked my contributions to literature because of this vulgar form of marketing... but I am more worried about how future generations of readers will view me.

    Yes the ever conflict between art for art's sake and commercialism. Perhaps you should post on non-commercial sites and sleep the nights of babes.

      I would really question whether Greek One will ever again sleep the nights of babies no matter what he might try.  lol

    Is this a long-winded way of saying that you aren't making any money Greek One? Are you not being commercially appreciated?

        I didn't think that you had ever had any problems in touching yourself?

    I'm slightly confused.  Unless this is a new art form your recent Scottish thread seems to be chock full of adverts.  There are a few lovely words in between though, and I was also touched (briefly) by the narrative which held me in mind of a summers...

    Oh I can't do it. Sorry.  I'm not in your class.

        You're right, things do need clarifying, especially on forums.  We did no touching at any time, before during or after the performance.  You took me home and that was that.

    It is the highest honor to have once's hubs graced by Adsense!
    Kinda like a quality endorsement.
    If Adsense likes you work enough to advertise on it, then it must be REALLY good smile.
