I'm going to be doing a little statistic test this week. So from right now, until Tuesday of next week, there will be no ads in the right side panel, or anywhere on the blog. This is really just for personal research, but I may end up removing them entirely if I get the data I want.
It's not that they're a nuisance or anything like that, I'm just looking into the necessity of them.
Enjoy... I think.
