do a lot of people get these?
In my email:
I am writing you one-on-one to let you know that Exitfuel is now paying up to a $5.00 CPM when you allow us to show our pop-under advertisement to your visitors when they leave your site. I saw your site and noticed that it doesn't have our code on it. I'm wondering if your interested in monetizing your traffic.
Hell, I'm interested in "monetizing" almost anything. But I replied:
I don't blog for money and I HATE pop-up (or "pop under" ads). Thanks, but NO THANKS.
I'll stick with my day job.
I would blog for money if I could, but I sure as shootin' wouldn't run pop-anywhere ads. Not even if I were a lawyer.
You forgot to add: "Fuck off and Die, you spam pushing marketing whore."
If you REALLY hate the pop-ups, Panicware has a free pop-up stopper on their website. Takes a little while to get use to, but it keeps those 200 windows from opening when pornsurfing.
Good decision, A-Man. Never do business with anybody who uses "your" for everything! If they're too cheap to pay a proofreader, Mr. Lion has a suggestion for them.
And you're right, A-Man, you should never blog for money. Maybe do other things for money, but never blog. It would make you appear cheap.
I mean, how low can one go, blog for money.
Cheap, cheap, cheap.
Good call A-Man.
I see one pop up (under or over or whatever) on any site, I am gone never to return.
Better off not even replying to the fucktard.
Thank you, thank you, and thank you. One of the many joys of reading your blog - no pop-ups, unders, or anything in between. You rock.
