I want relevant SPAM, part deux

Further to my Feedster RSS SPAM blog entry from last month. Now, Feedster is including a credit card ad in their feed results. Feedster response last month was that "RSS users tend to be on the rather highly technically adept end of the spectrum and interested in what Sun has to say." Love to hear how credit cards are relevant to us geekoids. Feedster has gotten very frustrating. Let me suggest they abandon Feedster Media Network, start serving Google's Adsense for feeds and focus on what they are good at.

Can you send me a screenshot and/or what search term was the feed for?

 The credit card ad came from one of the big ad networks, though not Google. It's likely GoogleforFeeds would have put placed the same ad, given how these things work. We're running fast replace the major search engine relevancy math with our own scheme, which will be much more feed-friendly than their page friendly legacy math.
