WordPress’ freemium model fails

Today, I noticed for the first time that WordPress would now like to place ads in combination with my content. The only way to avoid this is to pay them, and that’s not what I blog for. I’m also not inclined to place my own advertising to cover costs, so I’m left with no choice but to conclude that freemium is dead, and that I should leave this plane in favour of a private blog somewhere. It’s a shame as the keyword economy is thereby broken. Is there anyone other than Technorati to manage keyword clouds? (Google and hence Blogspot are evil, so I won’t go there.)
