Make GlimmerBlocker work with sites that use Pheedo
Authored by: gconway on Feb 09, '09 10:26:38AM
Safari adblocker and Saft also block pheedo feeds like Mac OSX Hints; in adblocker, I added a "don't block" to elements containing *click.phdo*, and in Saft I deleted the block for www.pheedo.com/

Of course, if the point is to block ads, then any ads that pheedo attaches to these websites will now be allowed. Thereby defeating the purpose of an adblocker, at least with these websites that use pheedo.

Score one for pheedo.com

Make GlimmerBlocker work with sites that use Pheedo
Authored by: Tiny Clanger on Feb 10, '09 04:51:46AM

Doesn't work for me, because making this change shows the ads.

So looks like I won't be bothering with sites that use Pheedo in the future, at least until someone comes out with a decent workaround.

(Of course, if Pheedo would only run non-intrusive, non-animated, non-oversized "look at me, I'm more important than the content of this feed" ads then I could just allow them. You know, like The Deck do — they're an ad company that Gets It[tm]. But I'm not having a load of bouncing, dancing rubbish distracting me.)

For me it is score -1 for sites that use pheedo. Like I found out minutes ago that MacOSXHints does when my live bookmarks didn't work.

Either they switched to pheedo, or I blocked it since the last time it worked. Doesn't matter, pheedo is joining my extensive list of sites blocked at the router.
