Goodbye, scribd.com

This is beyond me. We liked scribd, because it allowed us to display uploaded PDFs fast and appropriately. And surely, they liked getting new users.

And what did they do? They had their iframes escape, so that a Soup that displays a Scribd embed redirects to scribd.com as soon as the embed was loaded.

What did they expect to achieve with this? 

More users? Not. More annoyed users? Maybe. Less presence on platforms like soup? Surely.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
