LJ's latest folly: a copy of my response

I've a permanent account.  Now, I admit that this payment hardly makes me a major source of revenue.  It is, however, enough to make me a paying customer, and it is by way of being a contract.  Every soi-disant 'improvement' thus far has been of a sort that suggests that I made a severe mistake in contracting with you lot, as this is NOT what I signed on for.  Certainly I understand the need for a revenue stream.  I understand that this is, in some sense, a for-profit undertaking.  But my payment is rather akin to a BBC licence fee: it ought at the very least preserve me from being confronted with adverts.

Very well, then.  Be honest about what you are doing.  See to it that those who have paid for your services never encounter these damned adverts and are preserved from the companies's incessant blandishments.  And, also in the interests of honesty, label these market stalls for what they are: not fora, not 'sponsored communities' (communities!  Hah!), but, simply, SPAM.

That's as constructive as I can be.
