Fandom/Wikia is an ad company

I was reading a random game review from 2006 and noticed the large “accept it” button that mentioned:

This site uses an ad delivery service provided by Wikia, Inc. Fandom and its partners use technology such as cookies on this site to provide services, analyze user activity, and engage in advertising activity. By continuing to use the site, you consent to the use of these technologies. Additionally, Fandom engages in certain interest-based advertising activities in order to support this site and to provide personalized ad experiences.

That company is eating up pop culture knowledge, and serving it back with ads. I suggest a boycott.

So hard because they have legitimately eaten up pop culture repositories, including several that were not wikia sites and integrated them into their network. That’s actually just inhaling the voluntary labor of hundreds of fans…

I hadn’t thought of it that way, that makes my righteous indignation flare up!
