    File this one under "A" for "Answer To Prayer." They are the driving force behind the seemingly endless stream of untargeted pop-up ads that clog the Web, not to mention those annoying flashing tile ads. No offense to X-10 affiliates, but I think the Internet is a better place if they go away.

    Yeah, what Andy said!

    I wonder if their financial problem could have come from their CPM ADVERTISING COSTS?

    I had quite a bit of money coming (not from popups by the way) What are the chances of collecting any of it now??
    Any other good security or spy camera programs?

    Superb news!

    They've alienated potential customers with their untargeted ads and come to be regarded as spammers with their absolutely overwhelming popup campaign. They've paid the ultimate price for it. Good riddance x10, we don't like the things you do and we will not remember you.

    This week I received at least 7 or 8 emails (differnet email addresses related to different websites) asking me to run their affiliate program.... Hmmmm, was that a sign of desperation, or trying to scam a few new affiliates, or maybe something else?

    Anyway, I turned them down.

    No Jane, I disagree. Popunder ads work very well for advertisers. It's when you exaggerate that everything turns against you.
    X10 simply overdo it.
