So, I'm going to sit on the sidelines for a bit and see what happens. What a shame too. I really like Entrecard.
Hot off the press as of this morning:
Hello Entrecarders,I'm not paying 50 bucks a year to keep ads off my site. I can keep ads off my site by dumping Entrecard. Duh!
We just wanted to update everyone that the sponsor ads will be postponed for another week, until Oct. 5, 2009. When it is implemented, users will have the option to opt out of the sponsor ads program completely for a small fee. For just $50 a year, you can have your widget free of sponsor ads. We have provided this option for those of you who are concerned about the sponsor ads. Thank you for your support.
I've just given all my EC to my nine tops droppers. I currently have three EC remaining and I've disabled ads on my widget. I guess I've made my decision.
