I’ve seen a trend lately where TheBlaze and other respectable sources are sending out emails from advertisers who prey on people’s vulnerabilities. Just today, I got an email from TheBlaze (sponsored message) re: ”Legal marijuana is creating a once in a lifetime opportunity”.
I’m not stupid, some people here want or don’t care about marijuana legalization, while many of us oppose it… so before you fire one of those hateful replies off, understand that this email is not even about pot. It’s repulsive to think that a website founded upon a set of principles is willing to push advertisements to their supporters that oppose those same principles. It may be easier to sell advertisements to scam artists than legit businesses, but at the cost of losing the trust of their supporters, and the integrity of their company? SPIT! Unsubscribe. Such a shame!
