Two corporations, IBM and the ANZ Bank, are part of a boycott of this blog and my advertising revenue has plummeted. It was never a lot of money, but it had helped pay the bills.
The boycott is a consequence of an article attacking gay marriage published at On Line Opinion. I have never published anything on gay marriage, and I am not against the concept, but because advertising for this blog is sold as a block with advertising for On Line Opinion, and because the gay lobby is apparently intolerant of alternative views, I am suffering.
And it is not as though On Line Opinion is running a campaign against gays, lesbians or their right to marry – quite the contrary. On Line Opinion publishes a diversity of opinions with the aim of promoting Socratic dialogue.
