One of my goals for the Skeptic
Report is to maintain a no-ads website. I've been lucky enough so
far that I don't need any extra money that advertising on the Skeptic
Report would provide. part of that is to keep my readers on my side,
and not exploit you for my own monetary gain.
Unfortunately, in signing up for the

with that from them.

twice, changed our URL five times, narrowly avoided a lawsuit, and
hopefully gathered a good group of faithful readers who will stay with us
for the years to come. Thanks, guys. Your complimentary
comments are what keep me going. It's been a labor of love without
making me a single penny, and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.
