2RSS.com & adverts..

Anders Ohlsson just posted this regarding the fact that 2rss.com is now injecting ads into my rss feed. This blog entry on their site explains why they started doing this. Unlike Anders, however, I cannot actually fault them for this since, as they explained, they have to justify providing a free service. Also, the $14.95 annual fee seems like a reasonable charge in order to use the service ad-free. On the other hand, it would have been nice if they had injected an entry into the feed that merely points out that they would start injecting ads and that you can sign up for the service to support their efforts.

So far the ads seem innocuous and unobtrusive... On the other hand, this may be a catalyst to finally get a blogging solution up and going on the Borland Developer Network site.
