Thanks for the quick reaction and explaining what happened and to @PDelahanty for getting the feeds changed so quickly. That is very much appreciated.
@Leo, you have a very tech aware audience and many of us are also very privacy consciousness.
I/we understand that TWiT needs to make some decisions commercially in order for it to survive. We even had a long thread about how willing many of your listeners would be to pay a subscription to help the network.
As you have always stated that you don’t do tracking and never want to, it was a bit of a shock to find that the downloads were being blocked, because they were going through a tracking link (personally, I don’t block advertising per se, just tracking). It felt almost like a betreyal of your principals.
May I respectfully suggest that something as big as this decision be announced in advance. If you had explained exactly what information you want to collect and if you had a custom domain, such as twit.adentifi.com, I think many of us would have been willing to whitelist such a domain to help TWiT remain in business. Either in advance at the end of the last episode of each podcast before the change or on the community, as well as the TWiT.tv site (I download the podcasts and visit the main website rarely, but come here daily, whereas other listeners/viewers possibly do it the other way round).
Again. we understand TWiT has to do things to stay in business, but please communicate things like this in advance in the future.
A loyal fan
