April 22nd, 2006, 09:51 PM #1Is Funny T-Shirts serious?
Funny T-Shirts Inc. is running from four to eight Google Ads across the bottom of each page. All the ads link to their competitors. Some links can be followed to hardcore pronographic sexually explicit material. They have some nice t-shirts to promote but, at what expense? They need to lose the google ads and cut the tie to pornography.
April 23rd, 2006, 09:17 PM #2Warning!!!!
While following the leaks on Funny T-shirts and several other merchants that have major leaks, my computer became infected with 118 instances of these various spywares. Falkag, Atlas DMT, Traffic Marketplace, RealMedia, Yeildmaster, Zedo, Doubleclick, Mama Media Solutions, Hitbox, Statcounter, and Overture' spyware. Fortunately Panda Titanium was able to detect and remove the files. I did a full scan after my PC began to act up. It is bad news when merchants inadvertantly lead their shoppers into this stuff with their leaks. This indicates that merchants need to be screened more closely before being allowed into a network.
BTW, I do a scan on my PC daily. These spyware only appeared after doing the above leaks testing.

When neither the site owner, nor the PPCSE takes responsibility for the crap ads being shown on their site, eventually this trains the surfer not to click on these ads at all.
Might not be a bad thing in the end. (except for adsense publishers)

Sounds more like 'stat tracking cookies' to me but who knows. I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about a leaky site.
Wait, you're my competition!
I think you should spend more time investigating this.
