I had a frustrating experience with http://www.payperpost.com/, but since they worked with me to resolve my issues, I felt comfortable removing the 2000 word posting.
Instead, I'll leave you with a few juicy bits below about how Google is chomping at the bit to destoy paid blog advertisers and the like. To read about it, check out the Matt Cutts blog, he has the inside scoop: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/how-to-report-paid-links/.
The big question is will Google try to destoy competitors through unfair business practices? There is a lot of evidence that they will. PayPerPost.com is a competitor of Google. There is evidence that Google is going to hurt a lot of people so they can keep their financial gravy train as if they didn't already have enough. My prediction is that Google will be hit with the same struggles that Microsoft has gone through when it comes to unfair business practices. Google will deserve everything the public and the regulators throw at them. Funny thing is, they won't change, it's inevitable as they appear to be drunk with there success and are getting wreckless.
It's like in the AdSense ads, Google was the only one that unfairly advertised their Google Checkout cart with colorful icons, everyone else had to stay with one color. When I saw that, I saw color all right....RED!
They have also started putting their Google Local before everyone else's natural listings. They are even paying people $10 per business entry to get every business in America listed. When they do, you can be sure they'll use it to control everyone to march like lemmings in lockstep.
I'll be writing a blog entry soon on exactly how Google is going to go after their competition and how & why it's going to backfire on them.
Subscribe to this blog because I'm going to be releasing a plan to fight back.

Browser Speed Comparisons - Apple's Safari 3 Leaves the Others in the Dust
Safari 3 browser now works with Microsoft Windows PCs! Not only does it work, but browsing is twice as fast as Microsoft's IE 7 browser. I just downloaded it and it's amazing how much faster pages pop up when surfing. It takes about 3 minutes to download a free copy, so why not check it out. One can have several browsers on their PC at the same time with no confict.
Also, the highly regarded Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta is available now as well for Windows, Macs and Linux based systems. This browser gets more praise than does the IE 7 browser, though I must admit the IE 7 browser is much more stable than any of their previos releases. Why not try them all. At least use Safari 3 for faster browsing and IE 7 when you're doing your banking as some financial portals insist you use IE 7 to do your transactions.
A couple of years ago, I might have recommended Opera browsers, but since they're the slowest of the top browsers, I can't see any reason you'd want to use it. It is a very clean browser, but too slow.
Go ahead and try a new browser, they are all free downloads.
Download the Safari browser click here.
Update: I have been using 4 browsers:
2. IE 7
Safari may be fast but it makes some pages look odd, so in spite of the fact I was enthusiatic about it working with Window, I still think it's going to take more time before it displays a page as consistently as IE 7.
Firefox is great, I use it when I want the best security. For general surfing, I still use the IE 7 browser. I wanted to get away from it because it's a Microsoft product and I don't trust Microsoft with security, but IE 7 is leaps ahead of IE 6. So, my hat is off to Microsoft to my surprise.
New Thoughts: I've now been using the Safari browser for a few months now after I had written the announcements above. I prefer both the IE7, IE8 Beta and the Firefox over the Safari. The reason is that the browser rearranges the elements on many webpages making things confusing. For example, photos will appear on top of written words, as where, the page displays properly on the other browsers.

One man's blog brought NBC to it's knees & had the top suits reduced to sucking their thumbs in the corner. What am I referring to? The Glen Woodfin Cafe called for a boycott of NBC in a blog entry on December 7th, 2007 after they refused to run a paid ad simply thanking our troops for their sacrifice during the holidays. They said it violated their policies. Yeah, I'll bet it did, yet they gave Al Gore over 30 hours of free broadcasting recently to promote his agenda (while Al Gore holds many investments that will explode with profits if he can get more of his legislation through). The NBC (Nitwits, Bozos & Clowns) had no problem clearing the way for Al Gore's stock portfolio (Big Al is a general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the Silicon Valley venture-capital firm which stands to make gigantic profits with alternative energy projects) to take a monster leap forward.
Obviously, I'm joking that my blog entry made any difference in their announcement today that they have reversed their decision to block the paid ads from running.
GE is the parent corporation that oversees NBC, but Jeffrey Immelt is showing his lack of leadership by allowing NBC to be such idiots. Doesn't he care that the NBC ratings are dropping like a rock. How investors long for the days of Jack Welsh. Why do CEOs like Immelt lack leadership?
I nabbed the egg on face photo from BeRecruited.com and the NBC logo from Google images. I used Xara Extreme to combine the graphics.
Thank you troops for risking your lives protect the NBC studio from themselves. Merry Christmas.

NBC refuses to run this paid ad by http://www.freedomswatch.org thanking our troops for protecting America. My God, just watch the ad and you'll see that you should stop watching NBC and write a letter to Jeffrey Immelt, GE CEO, parent company of NBC.
I remember when I was a child, I watched Walter Cronkite describe the war in Viet Nam with pictures of explosions on a map behind him representing the battles of the day and wondered if I too would have to go to war when I grew up. I never had to, but now, those that have the freedom to enjoy their life safely on American soil, do nothing but trash the soldiers that defend our country every day.
NBC, who has freedom of the press, abuses that privelege and spits in the eye of military families that have given their children's lives for them to have that freedom. I call for the firing of anyone involved with the rejection of this paid ad at NBC. I call for the boycott of anyone advertising on NBC. I call for the boycott of all GE products. Jeffrey Immelt is going to have a lot of red ink on his watch. How I wish Jack Welsh was still at the helm.
What has happened to America? How did ungrateful people get to the positions of leadership in our country while being of such sorry character.
Please voice your complaints to NBC:

I thank the American troops for facing danger every day. I thank the American troops that have bullets ripping past them while Jack Immelt, Mark Cuban and the NBC executives sit around on their ungrateful butts and do nothing for this country. I thank the mothers and fathers of the troops who have lost their children in battle or now have a permanently injured child from the war. I thank the children who are growing up without parents that have been lost in the war. These people have disgraced our country and do not deserve the freedoms they have.
Boycott anything Mark Cuban produces.
Boycott NBC and MSNBC.
Boycott GE stock and products.
For the Associated Press Wire on this story:
The whole thrust of public education is to create another cog in the wheel at a corporation. In the 15 years of schooling that graduates of a state school have, it is never mentioned that you have the right to own your own business. No, instead they talk about subjecting yourself to a system that leads to a job. One is never encouraged to start a business. Students are encouraged to get good grades so that you can get a good GPA, which in turn will lead to getting in a good college, so you can start interviewing for a good company when you graduate. Then, you'll submit to paying taxes as an employee with your FICA taxes automatically deducted from your check. Viola, that way the Democrats will get what they want, a submissive citizen that fears doing anything out of the box. Democrats love the box of being a good little tax payer. The Democrat's goal is to create a Solviet Union in the United States with them in power. They want to control everything. Starting your own business is terrifying for the teachers unions. To go into business for yourself is a direct assault on the cage they want to imprison us with.
Why is this? The reason is because the liberal Democrats have taken over the public schools. Liberals want you to be told what to do and when to do it. Liberals own the teachers unions. The unions just want more and more money without results, just like the unions are at General Motors. They don't care about results, they just want more and more benefits and money until the whole system collapses.
Most Americans could wake up in a communist country and would never know the difference because they don't exercise their rights that people died for. Liberals create with their policies a system of going home to work, work to home, home to work, work to home in a mindless circle. They rig the school system to brainwash our youth into being part of their "common good" philosophy. They strip the rights of parents so that the goverment is now in charge of everything taught to kids.
My guess is that he thought he was so popular that he wouldn't need to.
On this matter, thank God I was wrong. Democracy has a candle in the political darkness surrounding the Chavez push for the Fidel Castro type of dictatorship. Anyone can see how Fidel Castro's political views have destroyed a country for a lifetime. His legacy is nothing but selfishness and pride leading to subjugation of the beautiful citizens of the island.
