I’m a pretty accepting guy, but I’ve had enough of these ish sites. I think xanga really needs to redirect bloggers to the actual authors site itself. At the very least combine the comments so people aren’t getting two different streams of comments from two different places on the same entry.
I know why the ish sites exist. Advertising. More banner-ad space. Listen I really don’t mind the banners on xanga, even on my own blog. I’m even willing to click on them from time to time to help the site make some coin. But when you’re going to build a site that is dependent on banking off of other peoples content, at least have the decency to give those people as much credit/exposure as possible.
That’s just how I feel.
