Yesterday I posted a reply in a blog thread  .....

 

 This one ......... https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/Are-iPhone-Users-Smarter-Than-Android/ba-p/18635278#comments 

 

I now notice a couple of extra items ( buttons / lables , whatever they are )  in the reply ,

 

                    Whats this 2.jpg

 

As far as I can tell they are not a link to anything ........ clicking on them has no effect  ,

 

I don't remember seeing them before ... So , are they another new feature  , are they tied into the Klout " profile plus "  beta ?  or something else ? ,

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.

I haven't completed the Klout sign up ( and have no intentions of doing so  ) , so how has this rubbish attached itself to my posts ............. @giffgaff ... Please respond  .  

 

@gregg_b  I'm now getting  fed up with this extremly  intrusive " feature "   ..... I don't like it and don't want it  (  and never will  ).........  We ( myself and other members ) should have a choice in whether to be a part of this Klout  " feature "  or not , pushing it on people is counter productive .... and could even push people away ffom the community / network .

 

                I'm sad to say this but if this is the future of giffgaff ..... it's not a very bright future   .

@isabel1066

 

Which proves that it's affecting ( infecting )  peoples profiles whether they have signed up for it or not ,

 

I'm not anti giffgaff or trying to be awkward .... I just feel ( strongly ) that this " feature "  should not be pushed onto all members it should be the members CHOICE , there should at least be an option to  opt out / turn off  Klout / Profile Plus  .

It's good to see people adding banners like this. It needs to be stopped, and quickly.

 

I wasn't the first to add one, but the more who do, the better.

 

We need to get giffgaff to take notice -- to stand up and admit that forcing it down our throats was a bad mistake, and to turn it off completely and immediately until such time as it can be made truly opt-in.
