Did you notice the "Top Blog Of 2010" award over there on the right? I was awarded it just yesterday. I was flattered -- there were 45 different mystery blogs that were awarded these little nifty badges.
There was just one thing. They came with a commercial. When I loaded the badge, I noticed a link to a website shilling online PhDs.
Wow--I'd LOVE to have a PhD, but only if I earned it. And while I was quite happy to accept the award, I'm not happy promoting for a company that buried a commercial along with their award.
I know a little HTML -- enough to remove the offending link. So I'm keeping up there -- to see if I'm contacted about the missing link. (If you'll pardon the pun.)
And if I'm asked to take it down ... I will. But if I'm not . . . Hey, how often do I win a major award?
