Hi Tom I dislike those Snap previews immensely.
In fact, I absolutely hate, despise and loathe them with a vengeance.
WordPress.com added Snap functionality for all users (default=TRUE). To be fair, following lots of user feedback (surprisingly not all of it positive), WordPress made Snap a configurable option so users could disable the damned distracting Adware popups.
Judging by the number of WP blogs still displaying them, it appears the default is still enabled.
I think WordPress and Snap are great friends in the Web 2.0 sense but no disclosure about money changing hands was ever made.
I would pay WordPress good money to disable Snap. Permanently. Maybe a new business model presents itself.
