I understand that ads keep Spark free. And I actually don't mind them, in their place. I have followed a few, joined a couple and it's possible I bought something as a result of one. I don't recall which purchases are a result of which sites.
HOWEVER, I do take issue with a supposed story on a Spark email leading to -not a story, but- a full page of advertorials from Weight Watchers. Ads are one thing; embedding to this degree is entirely something else and I think it is just not fair game, not in the Spark mentality. If this kind of thing keeps up, it could mean the difference between using the site to its full advantage as I do now and cherry-picking things like trackers and reading friend blogs.
Spark Guy, I hope you're listening.
