Thanks, but no thanks

I get a lot of the same mail, and finally realized I needed a boiler-plate response…

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for your interest in advertising on, or your interest in writing a guest post. has advertising options available through Google Ads, including the ability to specifically place ads on our site. Go to Google Display Network for more information.

We do not offer any other advertising opportunities, and, in particular, are not interested in any of the so-called “text link ads.”

If that is what you wish, please stop contacting us.

Regarding guest posts: is always interested in legitimate guest posts about drug policy. The best way to start making guest posts is to submit one, and if we think it adds to the discussion with our regulars, we’ll be happy to add it.

We do not accept guests posts about treatment options, nor do we accept guest posts that include advertisements or links to businesses (including treatment centers, treatment referral centers, legal referral centers, or cannabis businesses).

Hope this helps.

Of course, the positive in this is that apparently is an attractive site in terms of ranking. But it can be annoying at times.

    well said, Pete. thanks for minimizing the crumbs on the couch. i think one of the reasons for the high ranking might be the high couchmates, and their civility.

    That’s far to professional and *nice* for what these people deserve.

    I submit the following as an example of what your response should be.
