we are not allowed to link to any sites we please?
Of course you are. here. Non-OSDN-approved.
so kuro5hin has sold out after all, has it?
How have they sold out? By renting a bit of space at the top and bottom of each page? Talk about making mountains out of molehills. Are you coming here because the pages look pretty, or because of the content? Because the adverts aren't changing the content.
if the OSDN is not paying for the topbar, then they should have no say in what happens to it.
Fair enough. But I wouldn't have thought that it would just be put in for the hell of it.
if they are paying for it, then it's part of the advertisement and should be visible as such.
And you think that "MyOSDN" and all the other OSDN sites along the top aren't an indication of that?
i hate nothing more then advertising that pretends not to be advertising.
Don't get me wrong, I hate things like adverts that pretend to be popup windows as much as anybody, but this is nothing like that at all. OSDN are paying for the top and bottom of each page. They want links to their other sites there. Is that so bad? Get a little perspective.
