    Got the following via email. What's the scoop? Not familiar with Word-Ads.

    I searched for "WordAds group" and this thread came up as number one.

    It looks like spam to me. The WordPress link could just be bling to make the message look legitimate. What link behind the Accept Invitation button?

    OK, Dawg jogged my memory. I recalled the announcement they were going to have ads, but I also recalled they made you sign up and they would only let those worthy in on the program. I did sign up back when they rolled that out, but never heard back. [Until now maybe.] Gonna have to read up on this. As stated, it's just a freebie personal blog under my own domain name. I oughta move away from the free thing... but havent.
