LJ is now displaying ads from the National Organization for Restricting Marriage to Only Certain People.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not assuming that LiveJournal made the choice to air this pro-discrimination ad or that it's their fault (like the person who discovered the ad), although I'll be interested to see if the current management is responsive to complaints. It's probable that the ad made its way onto one of the ad services that LiveJournal uses without anyone realizing it.

My issue is that I only know an ad like this could be appearing on my content because someone posted about it and it got linked. I'm a basic user, which means that there are ads on my journal, but that logged-in basic and paid users don't see them. Everyone else does.

I could change to being a plus user, but I am irritated enough at LiveJournal's decisions regarding advertising that I don't want to - and anyway, I would only end up ad-blocking the damn things anyway.

The no-advertising business plan is the main reason I'm drawn to Dreamwidth, by the way, followed shortly by the we're-not-bigots company policy.

Edit: LiveJournal has responded and says that they are tracking down the ad so that they can remove it.
