Don't trust adsense
We allowed Google Adsense to pay us to have a couple non-intrusive advertisements placed on our site, and we were going to use the money gained from it to purchase an actual "www.idleandthebear.com" domain. But, once it came time for payments to be handed out, our account was promptly disabled. We had earned 14 dollars, and they said this money was not to be given to us. Apparently there's illegal click activity, but we've never done anything to boost our ad revenue and they've not shown evidence of anything being done. I guess this makes sense, anyway. It's like karma or something. Even if we're just doing it for a new domain, we were still cashing in. Regardless, Adsense can fuck off.
