ISP inserting own adverts

Texas based ISP Redmoon has implemented software that hijacks pages being visited by their customers by placing Redmoon’s own ads on these pages.

The technology is provided by NebuAD, which boasts that ISP delivered advertisements are an untapped source of revenue.

I guess this may sound worse than it actually is. It depends if the software replaces ads or inserts even more. I guess that’s why I like RSS as it cuts out the chaff.  Sometime the advertising just takes over, take a look at this page, can you spot the article itself, it’s just there in the middle, blink and you’d miss it.
