Re: So, I visit a page with an Ad, and phorm replaces it? And I would be extremely pissed off if I were the website operator. When I put ads on my website, it means one or two things:
1 - I, or the charity the ad is for, am making money off of the ad in question.
2 - I approve of this company's service.
By replacing those ads with other ads, they are depriving me of income, depriving charities of income, and using my name to insinuate that I approve of a product or service that I might actually be opposed to.
In fact, I would call this fraud since they are fraudulently using my (hopefully good) name and reputation to sell something. I could be defamation of character too. After all, if the product/service is bad, then my name/reputation might be damaged as a result.
