Why FeedFlare feature of feedburner is complete no no

FeedFlare is the feature of feedburner which allows your readers to Social bookmarking your post from E-mail itself.

See what official description says:

Give your subscribers easy ways to email, tag, share, and act on the content you publish by including as many or few of the services listed below. FeedFlare places a simple footer at the bottom of each content item, helping you to distribute, inform and create a community around your content.

But I don’t recommended this very nice feature of feedburnerfeedflare.

The reason behind this is when you add Digg,Stumble Upon etc fields to your email letter,Feedburner adds them in footer of the mail.But stop it adds them not as text but as images.This images are hosted at third party server(Some location at feedburner server).So ultimately so many images that also coming from http://feeds2.feedburner.com.Yahoo mail takes it as spam.I haven’t tested on other services but yahoo mail sends it to spam folder.(Also because everyone don’t have your feed email id in their address book)

Now think what if your readers has a habit of deleting spam mails without seeing or they have kept autodelete spam function.You have readers but your content is not reaching to them!

Solution of this is upto feedburner , we can’t do a bit in it.
