Do you use an ad-blocker? If you do, we totally understand. Some people don't mind ads, others really mind them a lot. But if you do, I'd make this request. If you're a regular reader, please sign up for TPM Prime. We need ad revenue to run this site - pay salaries, rent, all the different expenses that go into producing this site. If you use an ad-blocker that closes off that spigot entirely. That ends up being a big hit to our bottom line. We're not asking you to stop using it. But if you do, I would like to ask you to sign up for TPM Prime, our subscription service. It has dramatically fewer ads. It's faster and it has all the other Prime features. But in this context, the big thing is that it opens a revenue stream that makes up for the money we lose because you're using an ad-blocking tool. This way you can use your ad-blocker guilt free.
