Bernie mentions the latest in a long list of feed spam, this time from Labour. It’s bad enough with the mundane rewritten press releases on some of their “blogs” but now we have Labour HQ polluting what was I thought our community noticeboard with press releases. We also have their flickr feed popping up photos of politicians and political wannabes all with their labour buttons or whatever.
It’s not just Labour though. Now we see daily posts about CSO statistics. It’s a feed not a damned blog. We have “blogs” giving us fashion advice. We have gossip tabloids now as well for the prissy and vapid demographics. What once was a great community site has now turned into a Las Vegas strip with many “blogs” being nothing more than audience traps to collect ad revenue. The passionate blogs are now being smothered with smiling TDs and Indymedia hippy rants.
