Feedburner is annoying!!!

I know a lot of folks use feedburner 'cause they either don't have feed software available to them or they like the way feedburner keeps track of who's subscribed and who looks at what when where... But for me their new links are pissing me off!!!

Look at this link:

line?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:
+linuxjournalcom+(Linux+Journal+-+The+Original+Magazine+of+the+Linux+Community)

At least half of these links are unnecessary and sometimes over 2/3, depending upon the actual link. This is bullshit. So, I spend 1/2 my day editing links now so that they look and act normal:

I was so annoyed earlier that I almost posted a "no more feedburner links at tuxmachines!" Big Grin

I wonder if sites have any control over this?
