I don't know about you guys but I really hate when you say your working with contextual/pop-ups/pop-unders/adware that people all the sudden say it's spyware, viruses, etc.. i dunno it just drives me nuts

Forgive their ignorance! Actually I didn't know the difference until I was ready to start using it as an advertising platform myself.

Definitely. Teaching people the difference between SPYware and ADware is a tough sell sometimes. Tell them you are working with Downloadable Software (sounds much more innocent!)

And what people is this too?

If I say that to anyone I know in "real life" they all say "HuH?" So I tell them I make gay porn websites and they leave me alone.

I can totally relate to this too. People just don't understand what we do, be it PPC or CPV.

I was talking to a girl I know awhile back and somehow I mentioned cookies (the computer kind ). She started freaking out about how they can ruin your computer and corrupt everything on it.

I wish I could have shown her ALL of the cookies that have found a nice lovely home on her computer.

Good - they can stay far far away from CPV and let the rest of us utilize the traffic
