General information about Alladvantage

Added 12 April 1999.

Alladvantage.com is a sort of Multi-Level Marketing scheme, possibly even an honest one. You sign up and are then paid $.50/hour to keep their advertising banner on the screen. You also get paid a commission on referals -- this is where the spamming comes in.

Alladvantage.com has an anti-spam policy but acts as an attractive nuisance for spammers. On their fourth day of operation, one of the spam cancelers reported he'd already killed 31,000 usenet spams. (See netnews article "Re: alladvantage.com SPAM".)
