TA is making money from it, keeping this site online, and keeping the forums open (VBulletin Costs a lot per year for a license.) Ads help fund the payroll account, helps pay the cost for the apps development, helps pay for the server, the security measures for the server. It garners exposure for an app or game, increasing a developers revenue. It helps feed the magical unicorns Eli adopted, and helps fund their vaccinations and horn sharpening sessions.
well i guess that there's no such thing as bad publicity. but for me, at least on the internet, this is the kind of ads that scream "keep off!". like emails that say i've won $1000000 but i need to send them the handling fee first. these are raunchy.

but hey, if TA is making money from them then i am all for it

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

That would mean we need to delete the internet.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
