TTAG will have a brand new website soon. Same basic blog format and comment functionality, only cleaner, faster and shinier. While we regularly update our site to keep up with the internet gestalt, our readers have made it clear that our current site is kludgy and worse. The new site will solve a lot of the problems bedeviling the Armed Intelligentsia, but please be aware . . .
that the redirects and autoplay audio ads are an ad server issue. We depend on our ad supplier to fix these annoyances. If an ad causes a problem please email thetruthaboutguns.com with the words REDIRECT or AD SUCKS in the subject bar. If you can send us a screen grab or at least ID the ad we’d be much obliged.
Meanwhile, we’re also working on creating TTAG emails. With a choice of frequency and easy opt-out, of course.
TTAG emails will be unique to each reader, delivering content depending on your interests and the articles you read. Security sensitive readers will note that this system requires user tracking. I want to assure you that TTAG does not and will never share your email or IP address with anyone else, ever. That is our solemn pledge.
We’ll be able to generate emails that provide firearms-related information you like, excluding content you don’t. More than that, the user data will let us know what kind of content we need to create to satisfy our readers’ tastes. While Google analytics already does a pretty good job in that regard, the new system will be far more granular. TTAG will become more responsive and, well, better.
Also, from time to time, we’ll ask you questions about your preferences, to further refine our understanding and cater to your specific interests. Again, there will be an easy op-out, and this data is for our eyes only. We take your security and privacy very seriously. Our man Leghorn — former nuclear risk data analyst for the Department of Homeland Security — is our guide and conscience in this regard. I trust him. So can you.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. TTAG is committed to providing our readers with the web’s best gun-related news, reviews and editorials. We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks.
