I love my RSS feeds that constantly flow through FeedDemon. They are the lifeblood of what I like to do – write about technology and the internet. While I am not a big fan of partial feeds and will usually unsubscribe from them or not subscribe at all. I will even accept advertisements; within reason, as part of the feed because bills have to be paid and people need to eat.
There comes a point though when too much is just plain too much and I have to say something and such is the case today when I went to check out the newest post from John Battelle’s Searchblog feed in FeedDemon and was faced with this as the entry:
That’s it .. a single three word hyperlinked sentence a bunch of whitespace and then a frikken ad that took up more space than the useless post. So what the f**k was the point of all that?
John may be a busy man with all kinds of conferences, meetings and the other great things of running a business but if you can’t take at least five minutes to at least make the post bigger than the frikken ad don’t waste my time by posting this crap.
Oh wait … that’s right … UNSUBSCRIBED!
