Advertlets bites the dust?

Posted on Sunday, January 6th 2008 12:21 am by menj in Offbeat

Has Advertlets gone down under (and no, I am not referring to Australia)? I have never used them anyway so I do not know what has actually happened. But someone alerted me that their domain had expired and some bloggers have complained about the issue since it was down. Even if it was a simple mistake such as forgetting to renew their domain (which I personally think is unlikely), I find it hard to foresee that they will recover from this flurry of bad press they are currently receiving.

In any case, if they have really gone bust, I have a few ideas on what to do with that domain….

      First, their ads code messed up my comment form, causing the ‘submit’ button to cease functioning. And then they redirect all sites that have their codes installed to someplace stupid… It’s not only us bloggers they have to face. I’d like to see them face the advertisers! Oh, and their support is extremely slow!

      Cheers~

      I wonder how would Josh Lim handle the damage control now…

      I noticed that they offer both of those degrees. The Master of Commerce degrees are awarded by the Faculty of Business and Economics of the respective school for the most part. The MBA is always awarded by the Business School of that school. Both degrees are unbelievably expensive.

      What is the main difference between these two degrees and how are they regarded? How would employers in the US distinguish between the Master of Commerce from Australia and the MBA from there?
      It’s not an MS degree. They call them “Master of Commerce” and those degrees are in general business, not a particular field such as accounting or finance.

      Hearing the news from neighbourhood that they relatives returned back from Australia after 10 years of living in Perth. When checking back to the news, it was a report in the beginning of 2012 (this year) that even 20 years UK migrant left Australia back to their hometown and never hope to be back…Why? I just had my PR status and wondering should i still heading there?

      I’m in Australia right now for the month, and the drinking age here is 18. Not only that, but it is very poorly enforced, and anyone who looks over 20 or 21 usually doesn’t get carded.

      Drunk driving is a very rare occurrence here compared to the US. Not only that, but minors drink relatively responsibly here. I haven’t seen kids get sh*t faced at bars the way they do at home.

      Do you think this is an example of the US trying to over-regulate? If the drinking age were reduced, would it help people drink responsibly?

      Australia is always being accused of imitating other big countries of the western world, such as england and americas “fast food tradition”.
      But what are some reasons to suggest that Australia is not an imitator, but rather a country of inovation.

      I sent a parcel from Australia to Germany and am trying to track it. I can track it until it left Australia on the Aust post site but that’s as far as it gets. How do I track it further?

      I’ll be travelling from US to Sydney Australia in May. My phone service company currently in US is T-mobile. I want to purchase a sim card when I arrive. What sim card can anyone recommend, that has the cheapest calls, when making local calls and receiving calls in Australia?

      I’ve heard it is South Australia, but I really don’t know. I hear South Australia tends to lean more towards Labor, but I guess that means that the right faction of Labor is more predominant there. Right?

      Hello everyone, I am from Uruguay. My name is Saul. I have a doubt about your origins. You people from Australia, how do the first ancestors get into that Island? The country of Australia is in the middle of a huge ocean so, centuries ago there were no people in the country, when people started to migrate to other regions they walked. So how those people cross the ocean to get into Australia?
