TeMerc, please report this person, the company, and the software everywhere around the anti spyware community.

She might have just been angry, saying stuff she didn't mean, but to threaten to put spyware in an anti spyware program (especially just for spite) is a serious offence, even if she didn't mean it.
This can also lead to a lawsuit under the recently signed anti spyware bill.

Dell (Quote, Chart), eBay (Quote, Chart)>, Microsoft (Quote, Chart), Time Warner (Quote, Chart), Yahoo (Quote, Chart) and Earthlink (Quote, Chart) endorsed the Tuesday legislation. They did so after exemptions were added to the bill for network monitoring for security purposes, technical support or repair, or the detection or prevention of fraudulent activities.

What prevents those groups from exploiting "security" devices, and what about VoIP?

As for clickbank.com, read this:
180solutions vs. Us
Also this:
Adware.Clickbank
So like Gator.com (who later installed logging and tracking devices) Clickbank.com is (currently) not to blame.

BTW, PayPal is overusing it's anti pornography clause for things like a picture of 2 bare chested men kissing eachother.
I advise new donaties to stay away from them unless you want your daily percentage radically cut.

Hi Paul,

Thanks so much for the welcome. I had not seen the front page article until you pointed it out. I've been rather busy with getting the word out.

Another interesting note: It appears that Ashley has violated the T&C's at CNET's Upload.com by manipulating the data or statistics for PT 2004. I have emailed CNET to inform them of Ashley's activities. Upload.com T&C - http://upload.com.co...html?tag=subnav

[Edit: Taken from Upload.com's T&C page] "Your Conduct on the Service

If we discover that you have manipulated the data or statistics for a certain product, we reserve the right to remove the product from the CNET Downloads library and from CNET Download.com."

Ashley has paid people between $25-30 to write not terrible reviews of his software. ScriptLance post by ash1ey ( http://www.scriptlan...092083358.shtml ):

"Hello

I am looking for someone to write 5 good reviews for my software at download.com - The reviews must be positive reviews and based around the good features of our software. This will require you to have 5 different email address's to register different reviews.

Payment will be escrowed via scriptlance and then released on completition of the work.

Urgent Job.

Thanks"

Glowing feedback from the 5 lucky souls who have worked for ash1ey is here - https://www.scriptla...re...i?w=ash1ey

Hope you don't mind my reproducing some of the info. from the article here in the forums. If you feel that it warrants removal I will understand.

P.S. Very nice & informative article!

I'd be surprised if they didn't arrest her yet.
