A few weeks back I was contacted by feedburner about participating in an “experimental” ad-program. I replied with “I am not a fan of ads but I am willing to take a look as long as it’s non intrusive.”
Well about 10 minutes into seeing an ad come up on my page I was turned off, these big blaring ads plopped smack dab in the MIDDLE of my posts that have absolutely nothing to do with what I’m writing about – forget it.
I email the guys and tell them – sorry but I simply cannot stuff these totally content-agnostic ads down my readers throats and that I wanted them removed immediately.
They replied – said no problem and I assume all is well. I even went into the admin area and deactivated the feature. Today I notice there is again a big blaring ad smack dab in the middle of a post.
Just so everyone is clear – I’m working to have these removed ASAP, they will not continue and they drive me just as crazy.
