Boy did I just waste my time.

I wonder how many people actually join programs when they click on the ads they do. I just did, and almost as quickly as I signed up to one, I deleted my account. It was misleading from the start. The ad claimed that you'd get free advertising if you joined their site. Ok, so I signed up. Now what? Some song and dance where you have to watch a "live" webcast for 20 minutes. Oops, there's a problem. I don't have unlimited internet, so I can't afford to do this. So, there goes that idea. As soon as I sign up for the site, I'm bombarded with emails from them and about half a dozen other sites. If I have to go through the same thing to get my "free" advertising, it's not worth it. It's a manual surf site I realize, and it's giving me grief, so I stop surfing. Besides, if I'm going to use a surf program, I'd rather do autosurf so I can do something else while it's running. So now what? I'd read in the welcome email that you can delete your account, along with the other half dozen sites that signed you up automatically, so that's exactly what I did. I will not be fooled by something like this again. I'd rather not waste my time with it anymore. I don't know why sites have to be so misleading, claiming that they'll give you something, but in reality you have to work for it.

Nothing is ever free. If something is advertized to be "free" online, chances are it takes a lot of fancy footwork and time to get. Sorry Kris...Such is life.

I'm aware of that. But this one is worse. If you have to jump through hoops just to get it, then it's not worth it. I don't mind surfing for free traffic, but when told that I have to pay for something to eventually get this, it's not worth it.
