Advertising has definitely entered the RSS world. Several companies (for example moreover), place ads in their feeds.

OK, serving feeds costs money, they try to get some of that money back with advertising; I don't really like it, but I can't blame them either.

But folks, at least try to use some common sense! I get exactly the same advertising in every single moreover feed I subscribe to. This is very annoying.

And to make things worse: They serve the same advertising every couple hour. So not only do I get it in several feeds, but I get it several times a day. Very very annoying.

But that's not all! Even if they have nothing else to post, they just keep on posting the ads. On "slow" days that means I get the same advertising several times in a row. Now that is really very very very annoying!

If this folly continues next week, I'll get my information elsewhere.
