I feel much the same way about "promoted" links. I find them very intrusive and they are never of any interest to me. to make matters worse, the advertisements are rarely relevant to my interests. I like taking a minimalist approach to my online activities. For example, I avoid subscribing to particularly chatty people on Twitter because of the frequency of their tweets. I don't mind that people post a lot, of course, but I appreciate having the choice on whether or not I want to see that. I wish I had the same option for the promoted links. Opt-out is the best thing ever. How I would love the option to opt-out of advertising features... That said, with some of the sites I frequent, I realize that as free services I don't have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to complaining. So I generally don't, and I've resolved that should the advertisements become too much, I'll simply stop using the service in question. No one's forcing me to use it, and I'm not about to "call the banners" over something like that. But that's me and my situation, of course. I don't envy you for your position. I can't imagine the work that would be involved in migrating your blog back out of exile. For you, it's not so simple as not using a service; there may be the issue of archiving the posts here, not to mention getting the new blog set up for use...>_< Fun stuff. Good luck with whatever you choose to do, Wil. And, as always, thank you for the wonderful posts. You are an inspiration.
