Feedster Ads :-(
Today, I started noticing those Feedster Ads. Let's just say, I won't be using Feedster anymore. This is a horrible implementation. Instead of appending the ads to the bottom of an item, like everybody else is doing, Feedster has decided to drop items which are entirely ads, and irrelevant ads, into the stream. This looks really dumb! Not to mention, it would be trivial to simply remove any items with the term doubleclick in it. I can't believe they partnered with doubleclick.
