A little Bird told me the RSS Ads in Feeds are underperforming

I had a little bird tell me tonight that Ads in RSS feeds are not performing because of the current way it is implemented. I have said from the get go to put 1 or 2 ads in for a days worth of content, and I will be cool with that, Google has blew it on this one.

I have a contact at Google, and maybe he can get a message to the RSS Adsense implementation department telling them, how they are putting them in the feed in the way they do is pissing the readers off.

Hey Google if your reading this is what you need to do, allow the person that has configured the feeds to set the frequency that they are inserted, you can do this with some smart code that basically leaves the area that you were gonna jam an ad at us, and keeps it hidden to lets say 1-2 every 24 hours or after so many post.
