Open Letter to Google Adsense

Thank you for your recent removal of ALL ads from my website.

In response to this, when I receive my final check from you, I will REMOVE ALL ADS from ALL my websites.

I already install various ad BLOCKING software on all of my customer's computers, and I will now encourage ALL computer users to block ALL ADS in their browsers.

Thank you for making the lines of communication completely one way in this matter.
