Debate dot org is not listed on the sites for sale list. http://www.webcorp.com... It remains on the assets list. http://www.webcorp.com...

So... the taking down of the ads is not a move towards selling DDO. Perhaps they just decided that the revenue from the ads was too miniscule to maintain.

This is my speculation. Your thoughts?

I was truly surprised when I saw the creator of this thread was not PoeJoe =P

As for this update...cool? I try not to concern myself with the behind-the-scenes action of this website. We are kept outside of the loop and trying to force my way in seems a waste of time.

As far as I know, there is no buy-in for Google Ads, meaning that they could have continued to have the ads without incurring any costs and zero maintenance. They'd be getting money, however small the amount, for no cost.

What I suspect has happened is that the ads program expired, and Phil hasn't bothered to renew it because there isn't any point.

DDO has been delisted for more than a month: http://www.debate.org...

This is false. All of WebCorp's other sites have Google Ads still ad up, and--I know this through my experience with my blog and Debate Fans--you manage all your sites on one account.

One, you're obsessed. Two, you're correct.

If that is the case, then, what is going on with DDO? If it has been delisted for a month, and we're still here discussing this, it stands to reason that Phil has neither sold the site, nor is planning to get rid of it - so what gives?

Well ever since he did I've won 5 million dollars in the UK lottery and been contacted by over 9000 Nigerian princesses.

I contacted Phil a while back through customer support about the lack of ads, but I haven't gotten any response.

This was in response to, "...some have speculated that the site is being scrapped or that it is being sold. Perhaps you could clarify the matter?"

So maybe DDO is being sold.

No, I'd take that email and the fact that it isn't on the list for sale that it is not for sale and that it will not be scrapped. No explanation for the downing of the ads though.
