Do old text ads live forever? June 8, 2005 12:44 PM   Subscribe

I'm seeing a textad for, a site that hasn't been updated since 2004. (I think.) Do ads, once bought, keep appearing forever? And if so, is that a feature or a bug?

bit of both. He bought a ton of ads and ads run for quite a while due to me keeping the server resources down and caching one ad for a minute for non-members, so the viewing counts are down and the ads last months instead of weeks.

Ha. I still remember how you took a month off of MetaFilter leading up to the election because you were so scared he'd win. You've proved yourself quite a capable gloater since those days. Surprised that we lefties didn't all quit MeFi when bush won? No such luck, Paris.

I dunno. Loathe as I am to admit it, Bush looks pretty snappy in his picture. I'd hit it (not gay).

Did you ever hear Bush's nickname at Yale? Lips

I'm not sure about the first one, but the second one is "Make-Up is Lies", by The Make-Up.

And I would advise against posting the warblog.
