Sadly

Sadly, one of my favorite blogs has gimped itself.  The Firearm Blog.

You are reading one of their posts, and there is a link in the text.  Great!  Say you were reading about the Glock 19.  You expect the link to go to Glock 19, or maybe Glock 19.

Instead it goes to an ad.  Like this.  Or this.  Not very informative when I wanted and expected information.  Now I trust them less. Not cool.

Gotta do whatever to pay the bills.  I have never known them to steal content or fail to credit folks, at least.

(Note, those were examples.  I have no idea if those places are linked to by TFB or buy ad space from TFB.  I don't even know if they have specifically done a piece on the Glock 19.  Probably.)

That is part of the ad software used by TFB's owners, AllOutdoor.com. The latter is owned by a Canadian media group, VerticalScope, which has been on a buying spree of firearms blogs and forums.
