Why Must You Take the Fun Out of My Google Reader?

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I love my Google Reader. All the information I desire in one simple place. I also like pictures. Pictures make articles prettier and grab a hold of my very very short attention span. So naturally when I go to Deadspin's new and improved RSS feed and see pictures magically gone with a sarcastic message that says "The image associated with this post is best viewed using a browser" and the associated link goes directly to their site, I'm not particularly pleased. All it's going to end up doing is making me read less of your RSS feed because again my attention span is poop and I like pretty pictures. Also, do you seriously need to hawk for page views at every turn? And it's not like your RSS feed is already chalk full of ads, it is.

Ugh, random rant but it's just annoying.

I just googled "deadspin google reader images" to see if I was the only one annoyed by this. Glad to see someone call them out for screwing this up.

Very annoying. At least they don't put a snippet of their post with a link to the full thing. That really pisses me off.
