RSS with Ads.
looks like the good old days of ad free RSS are gone. Had to unsubscribe from 2 newsfeeds provided by newsisfree.
No, I don't see ads anywhere on the internet.
Point the advertisers URL to your home machine using the hosts file.
What annoys me about newsisfree feeds is ads are separate items. I wouldn't mind if there are text ads embedded in the news items itself.
Well, they gotta be coming from somewhere. Try running something like netstat and see what sockets are open. Or ethereal. Maybe you can shutdown the advert socket? If the ads are inline with the RSS feed (same socket) then there is nothing you can do.
Darn those content providers and their attempts to make money!
