EC is pimping themselves out

The few of us left that still use Entrecard have no doubt noticed the so-called "paid ads" that they are using now. I have my own set of issues with these things which I have and will discuss ad nauseum at various points in time, but for this post let me just say that these things are like preaching to the choir.

If you think about it, why would you advertise on blogs that already use your service. Especially, if most of us don't want them there anyway. I understand that non-users may see them and be intrigued, but chances are, these same people actually read blogs, and have read our bitching and have already been dissuaded.

It could be just me, but I just think if they're going to force this on the few that didn't join the mass exodus off the site, then they should go all out with the paid ads, and not use us to pimp themselves. I don't want that to happen, but it seems a bit counterproductive, y'know? What do you think?

Heyyy let me clarify something for you. this is not to make you happy as an ec'r. this is to make you want to leave so they can shut it down permanently. that way they can use the server access and sell the domain.

I've already fortold the future under absentee(as in nice house nobody home)owners. there is more speculation that this is a repeat of a graham hissyfit; with the forum shut downs, members being bounced; and other assorted antiblogger activity.

spend your credits well my friend as you should be planning for the Very Near Future - it's comming, no doubt.

remember I said Ec You Are Not Pimpilicious - Two Weeks Ago, and everyone agreed. trust me, they know.
