I would just like to inform my readership that, after careful consideration, I have decided to remove the link to Alas, a Blog and remove my postings there from when I guest posted.
Ultimately I have done this because I am against companies such as the one that bought amptoons.com. This is both because it purchased his domain specifically to use his popularity to artificially inflate the rankings of its clientele in search engines as well as because his clientele includes mainstream pornography that is blatantly anti-woman.
I feel that if I leave my material up there and continue to link to him, then I am being complicit in my silence. The company was attracted to amptoons because of its readership — they wanted to use the popularity of his site to their advantage. If the part of the readership who is against companies like these stands by and does nothing, then what message is being sent? That these practices are okay, and even profitable.
I do not think the practices are okay, and I do not want them to be profitable. And so I am doing the only thing I can — removing my content and my support of the site.
