Back in the USA

After my summer of adventure and misadventure, I'm finally back to a relatively regular schedule, and hope to write once again. I hadn't checked my email for a few weeks, but I noticed I received a couple of offers for advertisements on my site. I've expressed my opinion on advertising previously.

One of them was for an online payday loan advance. Despite the perceived convenience it offers, I argue that it only leads to more irresponsible spending and lax budgeting by individuals. My inner libertarian, if I had one, would disagree, but then again, I don't have one.

Here's the email:
Dear Sir/Madam,After visiting http://stingystudents.blogspot.com/, our company, would be interested in an advertisement on your site. We provide consumers a safe and easy way to apply for payday loans online. Our advertisement format is generally 15 words long and it will contain two to three text links, which we provide. Please let us know how much your site would charge for an ad of this size.
We look forward to your reply and the opportunity to work with you.
To which I replied:
The cost for advertising on my site for a payday loan business is $10,000/yr.
If for some crazy reason they do bite, at least I can give it away to some sort of financial literacy programs.
