As an LTB member for a number of years, one of the pleasures of the site is that it is a "safe harbour" from all these politicians who are constanly assaulting our senses.
Today, on logging onto LTB, I was assailed by a Meg Whitman advertisement. It is irrelevant that I hate Meg Whitman and everything she stands for; I would have been equally annoyed at a Jerry Brown ad.
I understand this site is advertiser supported. But even capitalism must take into account what the purpose of its business model is. Would a Religious site be considerate of its members if an Atheist ad were displayed front and center on its site?
When it comes to the Lakers, I care not what any of my Lakers buddies' political views are. The guys whom I go to Staples with are a varied political group. But the rule, when we get on the train to Staples, is NO POLITICS. The Lakers are a no-politics zone.
I would hope that this is will be the policiy here -- unless Meg Whitman offers you twenty million for the site. That I could understand!
