[My other posts on Bitacle (if you don’t know about the blog-thieves) are in the ‘related posts’ section below.]
A few days ago I changed my Feedburner RSS feed to use the ‘feed image’ feature and used this:
This includes a small image with each of your RSS postings. Typical use is to add the logo of your site for branding purposes, but this suited me better. I made the change and didn’t think about it again until this morning when I happened to see my post from yesterday on Bitacle. Click the below screenshot to enlarge and see why I think it is so damned funny.
Tee hee — turns out that bitacle puts your feed image up in their header area. Now you can click directly from my bitacle posts to the Stop Bitacle site — Ha! OK I’m easily amused, but that combined with my tip for redirecting their image requests to show the below really makes me laugh.
Yes, I’m easily amused. And yes, I still hate Bitacle, but I have to do something while waiting for them to implode.
