USA-eVote.com has disinfected its site by removing ads.
USA-eVote.com will not be controlled by Internet giants.
When USA-eVote.com looked at the ads on our site and where those ads pointed, it was obvious those ads were designed to direct people to fake news sites, fake sites, sites owned and run by scammers, including sites with spyware and ransomware.
This is unacceptable behavior and needs to be eliminated.
USA-eVote.com may be the first site to take a stand against advertising giants who have the ability to screen ads, but refuse to use technology to protect the average Internet user. We now see an Internet world where profit is the only determining factor. Internet giants refuse to use available technology to scrub dangerous ads to protect people from obvious scams, spyware, and ransomware. The fight against such activity lies in the hands of individual publishers who place ethics about profit.
There comes a time to make a decision. Does one continue to expose readers to Internet threats when that website and its publishers are trying to fight Internet corruption? The obvious choice was to eliminate Internet ads. Which we did. USA-eVote will not expose its readers to Internet threats and will not allow fake news sites to advertise on its site. There comes a time to make a decision. As this coronavirus runs its course around the world, it is time to make a stand against fake news, scammers, and Internet giants making money from this crisis. They do not present any type of organized conspiracy. The only factor that unites them is greed. The time has come to step out of that corrupt arena, stand on your own, and allow God to control your destiny. The excuse, “everyone does it,” does not hold up in God’s courtroom.
