Some fool has registered jakartass.com, albeit neglecting to register jakartass.org or dots net, biz, info, us, co.uk or mobi (eh?). Obviously this financially clueless corporation
believes that Jakartass has some financial clout. They are sorely mistaken.
Presumably too, there is a notion that there will be a steady stream of advertising wonga, mulla, dosh and other currencies from those seeking the words and wisdom of Jakartass. How misdirected can one be?
Rest assured that this site, whether hosted on Blogger or elsewhere, will be advert-free, except for those carefully chosen because they're part of my community of friends, family or what is euphemistically called my 'lifestyle'.
These are the ads I already carry for free:Notes

That last bit is, of course, true for me, but then I rarely use my photos to comment on my philosophical views, nor do I have a host of links to think tanks, university departments or art galleries.
Roy does, so I'm giving him the Jakartass seal of approval with a permanent link.Foot
Following Charlton's relegation, or degradasi
as Indonesians put it, from the EPL last season, a number of financial cutbacks were made. One of these was the very successful Women's team. But sponsors have now been found to enable the club to continue its fine community work
for the next three years at least.
