i don't know why, but this bothers me. it's like pop-ups or just plain advertizing: good deal or not. am i rigt or am i wrong?
I appreciate it. Ann's just trying to let artists know about a saving. Even the New York Times has ads in between the articles.
passing along a coupon to other artists/letting other artists know about a good local sale on art supplies IS NOT ADVERTISING. if a friend calls you and says, "hey, the store has cool shirts on sale if you're interested." do you yell, "stop calling my house with your advertisements!" and then hang up?
As gilda points out, it definitely is advertising - pays for the NY Times. And Google, etc.What you feel about it here is your business though.
lolaaron you just outed me as leoqueen
I was being conversational, and forgot all this cloak and dagger stuff. Sorry.
but the key here is that ANN IS NOT BEING PAID for passing along this info.
you people love to bitch/blog/talk/whatever.go do something...
To Kalif, Ann is just doing the arts community a favor by posting this. Art supplies are very expensive and artists desreve to know when opportunities arise that may benefit them.
