russell beatties rss ads drive me nuts

April 12, 2005

I love Russell Beattie's weblog, but the ads in his RSS feed drives me crazy. Don't get me wrong, I think anyone with a popular product should be allowed to monetize that if they want to, but this format just doesn't work for me. On top of the fact that it intrudes on my pristine RSS environment is the issue that the ads rarely if ever match the content. Why is there an ad for Dell here?

How about a Sprint ad or something at least relevant? Personally I'd rather see Russell push some products he likes using Amazon or see if he can wrangle a sponsorship with a mobile startup like a game or mobile app company. Anything but these useless ads.
