But what I said is true. It's a shame that out of all the things that every site on Ozblogistan has ever posted, this is the one that made the HN front page.
There are far better posts than mine in those blogs. Is it wrong for me to be proud of them?
It's not wrong to be proud, but I have to agree that blatant advertising is distasteful no matter which way you slice it.
In case you are wondering, I don't make any money from the traffic. Each of the blogs decide for themselves whether to host advertising.
I sometimes forget that because I have about 3k advertising servers blocked in my hosts file ...
Personally, I downvoted the comment and suggest you delete it.
