A blogger using the name “a v” has launched ad-free versions of Gawker and Page Six (stripped also of its registration policy). We’re not saying it’s right or anything, we’re just saying it’s weird to see those blogs in a diffferent light and you should probably take a look at them while they’re still up, ’cause you never know who’s gonna get litigious. Actually, you do know (remember Perez Hilton?). a v has said in an email to AdRants:
This is a piece of performance art meets media. We wanted to see if we can draw viewership away from popular online blogs and news sites by removing the advertising. Would people actually enjoy the site more without the pop up advertising, drag overs, and other obtrusive types of online banner advertising?
Plus most people read the NY POST for the Gossip only so to us it was interesting to note that and really expose the NY POST for the right wing rag that it is. Also we have come to the conclusion that the registration process adopted by the POST was done in an effort to collect emails. We do not endorse spam dealers or peddlers!
