Ads in Webfeeds

FeedBurner was a small company that provided proxying and analytics for webfeeds. They became pretty popular. Then they got bought by Google. Nothing changed … for a while.

Now I’m seeing crappy image based ads in my aggregators. Yuck! Text based ads have been around for a while, but they were pretty unobtrusive. Worst of all is that the image ads are usually insanely ugly and frequently mistargeted.

This sucks!!

That is all.

(Actually I’m making these assertions without doing proper legwork. If it’s not FeedBurner’s fault, my apologies. Often wrong, never in doubt.)
