Giving Up on Blogrolling

I tried to be patient, but it’s just not worth it. They got massively hacked last fall, it took six months for them to rebuild their site, and then they launched it, sort of. Kind of. Not all functionality works. If you don’t pay twenty bucks, whenever one of your readers clicks a link, it puts an ad at the top of the page you go to. Screw that, why should THEY get money because my readers clicked on a link I recommended? Bad bad bad bad business model.

The final straw is that I cannot log in. See, once upon a time when it was a decent service, you could pay for gold level service. Part of that was being able to have a username instead of using your email address. Now with the changes, they don’t seem to recognize my username. There is no way to get support. I cannot log in to make changes to my blogrolls. Which really don’t seem to be updating the way they are supposed to.

So I’m going to try to figure something out. I mean, I’d love to be able to use their product, but they have blown it big time. So I will no longer be displaying blogrolling links over on the right menu. I’m sure you’re all very sad about the page loading just that much faster, eh?
