Denton to CheapTickets: "Screw You!"
From PSFK, an international trend-watching metafeed site: CheapTickets.com decides to pull their ads from Gridskipper.com, because apparently the writing style was a little too racy for them. Replied Nick Denton, owner of Gridskipper: "If an advertiser wants a safe environment, there are thousands of tired media outlets to choose from." In other words, the closest a business owner gets to flipping off a former advertiser. Good for you, Nick! I read Gridskipper every day, and would hate to see it lose its irreverent tone, or occasional links to risque sites, for the sake of an advertiser.
