Do you want an ad-free Whaleoil? Now you can


A few months ago we asked you if some of you would pay to have Whaleoil ad-free.

This is, of course, a dilemma for us because ads are what pays the bills. But, we are realistic too and know that readers don’t like them and so deploy ad blocker software to get around it. That, however, affects our bottom line and makes us vulnerable to Social Justice Bullies who seek to damage our revenue in order to try to shut us down.

The management team at Whaleoil got together and tried to find a way forward that would achieve several goals. The first was to remove ads for those who wanted it. We are launching that today.

Another driver is to continue to build the community we have here but to provide additional, premium commentary and information to loyal subscribers and donors over and above what you can get for free.

No one should have to work for free, and neither should we. But we also need to be protected from social justice bullies who seek to destroy the community we have built here.

From today you can join that community and be the first to see what we have planned in the?future. ? Read more »
