Default Newsfeed - Barage of Advertising introduced?

Is it just me, or did the newsfeeds just get a TON of advertising put into them?

I checked back to the last one (feb 12)... no ads... todays'... an ad between every single news article (very distracting to say the least).

Was lovin' the feeds... unsubscribed today.

I know it was most likely done to help run the site... but wow... it was like overload on the first one

Anyhow... just to let ya know... don't post much, but read all the newsfeeds.... each and every one.... until today.

no kiddin?

The one I got today had a banner under every single news item... but just checked... the rest haven't....

Hmmm... wonder if the banners were blocked before somehow (?).

K... must just be a setting that's changed this week on my computer... will try and figure it out and resubscribe again (by the way... only computer related newsfeed I have... it rocked ).

Haven't touched banner settings for the feed since last year!

the banner ads appear sporadically in the feeds, they don't make much, but help
