So I suppose this means I should stop pursuing the Chase sponsorship?


In all seriousness, I'd mildly oppose this in its current form; I

don't think it would be the worst idea to have the youtube ads on our

videos up on that website; help make the occupation a bit more

self-sufficient. We shouldn't have paid ads on or

such similar websites either, even for

Bob's-Super-Independent-Organic-Vegan-Non-Imperialist Foot Powder;

that's just not the greatest organizational website design, generally.
