In many posts on this blog, and on various message boards,
and on my sites, I have promoted InstantBuzz as a great way
to build a list, promote a product, and gain exposure for your website.
I also, on many occasions, stated that InstantBuzz does not generate pop-ups.
I have now seen irrefutable evidence that some marketers have discovered a way to use the IB toolbar to generate pop-ups (which, incidentally, are not blocked by adblocker software).
I have no idea if the site owner will take action on this, or if it’s all just part of the game, but I personally will not continue to promote the system as long as the ability to cause undesired pop-ups remains.
And to those who took action based on my recommendations… I am truly sorry.
