I can’t for the life of me imagine that an Internet services company could make such an amateurish (in fact it borders on idiotic) mistake. I know I just posted on how you should manage mistakes made by others. However, if I were an Advertlets client (either publisher or advertiser), I’d be pretty damn pissed as my traffic would now be redirected to some shady domain parking lot.
Now… the above was written based on the presumption that it is a mistake in the first place. CypherHackz has a pretty interesting post on why this could be a premeditated move. It may sound like some crazy conspiracy theory, but nevertheless it’s an interesting read.
