I hate to be that guy…

…but oh man, I really hate these Tumblr pinned posts.

For how much David talks about finding better ways to integrate advertising into a platform, it bears noting: these are easily as, if not much more annoying than a site cluttered with banner ads. At least with a banner ad I can tune them out…the pinned posts require a click to get them out of the way, and i find myself spending less time on Tumblr as a result.

Is there anyone out there who feels differently? Or are we all quietly (or not so quietly) hating them?
