    @matigo That kind of stuff I can so easily avoid in a properly filtered and ad-free social web platform…these guys are barking up the wrong tree.

      @cgiffard digital music spun out of "music" a year or so ago...this I infer from the change in search that befell my shopping on AMZN...I only buy MP3 any more but careless search will fetch me vinyl and CD products too.

        @lasar could you make one of those in a brown tinted glass cylinder in a way that made it look like a stein of beer with a good head of suds on it?

          failing all else, I have manually archived my list of ADN Follows [no time/skill to get at the API for such a task if any there be] I will see if any of the handles there turn up the present whereabouts of folks whose links and comments I have valued.

            @hackernews @eg I have gotten more good out of HN links here than any other automated source ...really the quality is nearly that of @johngordon. So please consider plugging your feed into one of the ad-free ADN alternatives now springing up.

              @waxpancake There are a raft of substitutes in the wings or already on deck for you to try. The people involved are all ADN users or app developers...they know the culture of well filtered civil conversation. Do not be afraid. Plenty of lifeboats.

                To all and sundry following me or just generally inclined to prefer the conversations ADN has facilitated: Take your social web future in your own hands and then drop it into this list [snipergirl.com] maintained by @tomcat, lest we lose you to some adfest like twitter.

                  To all and sundry following me or just generally inclined to prefer the conversations ADN has facilitated: I am finding the pnut.io provided by @33MHz, especially via Noodle, a comfortable alternative. invites can be arranged.

                    @johngordon @clarkgoble @deurig Will miss these threads. Like rummaging the bar of the Titanic for great vintages about to go beneath the waves, got here by curiosity about "WLINC"...suspect WLICD {...College Debt} may be even more wretched.

                      @andrewh It was quite a party. Met lots of cool people but I had to supply my own liquor.

                        @holbrook I too have a heretofore completely neglected twitting account. Forced by sad circumstance to revisit it, I find it as noisy as FB, a shouting match with ads...and yes I always get cut off half way through the first sentence.

                            seek reassurance of confirming responses or at very least the satisfaction of being heard. Truly satisfying social web is HARD because at an emotional level, there are several kinds of motivation and interaction.

                              @joanna @manton I had a similar reaction when @matigo opened up 10 Centuries…we could all be autistic and brilliant and barely respond or even expect responses. This is not a totally damaging aspect since we write to the web both share information and to»

                                  @erikschmidt you were there first, or else that guy who was at Sun, Novell and Google [can't keep a job?] is shy about using his real name. See you there.

                                    @schmidt_fu Florian, how much difference do you think YOU could make by inviting the diverse voices whom you engage to join you in the conversation server you choose? I fared poorly inviting twits and faceboobs to ADN but I am not a salesperson.

                                      @33mhz I won't mind learning a new app UI but since I am much happier with a desk top and acres of monitor I did not try the mobile apps.
