Re: Botnet armies generate clicks

Eventually bot ad generators will supply ads for botnets to click on. And it will be counted as part of the GNP.

Plus ça change: didn't we use to call this hollow swaps? But I guess if Google does it it's all OK then, not deceptive in any way because it does no evil, right?

These guys have become Microsoft v2, but not quite as benign. No doubt, they will soon engage in conditional charity too.
