Tobias Schlitt's Blog:
Abject "sponsored link" practice on PHPFreaks (update)
January 18, 2006 @ 07:24:32

In the debate about the unwanted links on PHPFreaks.com, Tobias Schlitt has updated this post with some more information/opinions on their placement of links that were not original to the aggregated content.

Many people replied to my article, so I feel I should post an update. Thanks for everyone who stated his opinion so far.

Today I saw that phpfreaks.com actually changed the links on the word PHP to point to their start page and now link the word hosting to their webspace provider.

Pretty many people (compared to the usual comment traffic on my blog) already claimed their support against this kind of ads here.

He also mentions the slight irony that this article was aggregated along with the rest (and still remains). There are several comments on the post, including some from the phpfreaks team themselves...
