So like I like Matt Mullenweg. He has been a guest on my radio show but now he is leading this huge thing with other wordpress people to ban sponsored links. Ya Matt Cutts applauded them for this yayayaya whatever.
Here is what I think. (and i have no inside information its just my opinion). I think soon your going to see wordpress.com hosted blogs allow Google Adsense and its going to be a huge deal. So right now the wordpress gang will do whatever they need to not piss off Google.
So let me get this straight. No more sponosored links on themes. The only links that can come with wordpress is the ones YOU MATT MULLENWEG and all your friends embed in the default install of wordpress? Also like all of you guys have sold text links or have adsense or making money off your default dashboard and embeded links.
I mean I have seen software that embeds links like you guys do with the default blog roll and its called Adware. I dont think you should act like your taking the high and mighty ground here bucko.
