Some links on this site on this site are affiliate links. That means that the site (and thus me — I? — no idea of the proper grammar here) will make money when you click on the link and then make a purchase. That doesn’t make the links on this site any less useful to you — if they weren’t useful you obviously wouldn’t be considering buying whatever that thing is. That these links compensate this site doesn’t cost you anything, but it does help pay for continuing to add stuff to this site. I presume you want that, because you must be getting something out of this site or you wouldn’t be reading this drivel.
Pretending the internet isn’t a commerce platform is kinda crazy. In fact it’s mostly just one big advertising mechanism. Even amazon.com (which you might think of as a company that sells stuff) sells ads on its site so that encourage you to buy the same products elsewhere!
So get used to the advertising thing and just look around for what you find that is useful.
***NEW AND IMPROVED*** This site now uses VigLink to automatically create affiliate links.
