Is this rip-off / scam sponsored by DPR?? (hopefully not)
10 months ago

Today, twice, when I logged on to DPR, a separate window popped up, with the offer for me to take a quick survey in exchange for a "free" gift. A few simple questions, and then a no-cost (crappy) choice of items, but with a required shipping fee.

I don't like this at all. If DPR wants to make money by charging advertisers, then that's just fine. And if I can help put money in DPR's pockets (by giving this site lots of clicks), then it is my pleasure to do this for the site . . . You're welcome.

But please don't whore out the site to this sort of sleazy "free offer" scheme. It makes the site look bad. Very very bad.

Anyone else been having this problem? If so, how do you get rid of it, in a way so that this will not happen again?
