Nope, you are correct here Andy. We use ad creation as a
profit center because we know what our community will
respond to. We also don't accept any advertisers that are
incompatible with our brand. For example, a domain
registrar called today interested about advertising. I
thanked him but told him to save his money --
PillowMail users aren't interested in buying domains.

To me, focusing the site's content is a branding issue.
If you stay brand-consistent, your response rate soars.
