I was disturbed to find that sadoverload was born because of the money-making ads FOR Hartz on cuteoverload.com, a well-known and well-liked centre for pictures of fluffy cuteness, in essence, snugglecore. Like many websites out there, cuteoverload uses adsense to generate income from click-throughs. Ads can be rotated, and so you may not see the same ads everytime you visit an adsense site.
Out of my principle for objectivity, or innocent until proven guilty, I had kept cuteoverload on our blogroll until I could see the offending ad for myself. Well, I just did, at about 1.45pm, local time.
I am disappointed to learn on both sadoverload and hartzvictims.org that the owner of cuteoverload has ignored all their attempts at communications on this, and has erased all comments about this that appears on any of the cuteoverload postings. In addition, the owner of sadoverload, an avid longtime fan of cuteoverload has been banned for her attempts to bring the attention of her fellow-cuteoverload fans to the presence of the ads and to warn them about the harmful effects of Hartz on kitties and doggies, like this poor soul found out, the painful way.
Incidentally, I will be posting shortly, have posted a link to a post that shows it is possible to keep your pets free of fleas and keep them out of harm’s way at the same time.
