PayPerPost Attempts to Gain Credibility

October 30th, 2006 | Categories: blogs, strategy

Not likely. In fact, I am even more sickened by their recent move than I was when I heard they raised a round of VC financing. Talk about drinking the company Kool-Aid. These PayPerPost logonon-sensical juveniles at PayPerPost (PPP) have been brainwashed to the point of being unable to distinguish right from wrong. I do not believe that they have any morals or ethics left. Sure, there are sketchy behind-the-scenes business deals and corporate scandals occurring every second of every day - but this company has made it their underlying business model. Sad. Distasteful. Nauseating. I hope these clowns go bankrupt.

Today, they announced the launch of a new site called The purpose of the site is to take attention away from their underlying, evil business model and attempt to generate some positive PR. Unlikely chumps.

What does the site claim to do?

“This site is designed to provide you with the tools you need to provide transparency to your readers about the content on your blog. By including a disclosure policy you are protecting the integrity of your blog and providing a service to the advertisers, sponsors and organizations that you support you. Disclosure encourages trust amongst your readers and promotes an ethical blogosphere.”

I call bullshit. This is just another slap in the face to the blogging community. All I can say is this: If you’re going to get compensation for a post, disclosure is 100% necessary. No questions asked. And get this, they even pay if you post a PPP disclosure policy on your blog. Ridiculous.

Excuse me while I grab some Pepto-Bismal to settle my stomach. And no, I wasn’t paid to say that.

    […] My most hated enemy, PayPerPost, recently got slapped in the face by the FTC and rightfully so. This bottom-of-the-barrel, blood-sucking entity should be put out of business altogether. I have already written about their unethical practices here and here. […]
