Ads in RSS

There's a major debate going on at Signal v. Noise regarding ads in RSS. Major, because SVN is an important blog and they're experimenting with ads in their RSS feed. This is uncharted territory. Not surprisingly, a lot of their subscribers are really pissed. Some to the point where they've declared they have stopped reading SVN.

This isn't the first time this has come up, but it's the first time I've really given it any thought.

Basically, as a reader, I'm willing to accept ads in RSS. With two provisos: One, that I get to pick the ads, and two, I decide when I read them.

I'm still developing my thoughts and feelings on this topic, not that it matters to anyone who matters. But, I think there might be something there.
