Well it seems an article posted on digg incorrectly stated some facts in the relationship with Zango and porn. As it turns out (if you followed this, you're aware), Zango was not distributing porn but their association with YapBrowser certainly didn't help matters. Paperghost gives the lowdown on the facts.

But this time we have a confirmed, (by Zango)legit email to one of thier affiliates on how to proceed and suggestions on how much to pay and how to link to other Zango sites. Things like moving gifs because according to the email, 'people love that sh*t". And also mentioning adding in a karate guy doing flips, because it turns out that it's 'wayyyy more profitable'
Here is a snippet from the email:
"Zango is fairly new with MySpace sites and it took me some time to see what works and what doesn't." "Put one of our videos on to your MySpace profiles and all of your friends will see it" ...more profitably, *go to a bunch of your friends* who have popular profiles and pay them (it's up to you so much. One of my partners said 5$..maybe offer to split the money with them?) to put a Zango video into their profile through your site. This will give you hundreds of extra installs a day (this probably works even better than having them on your actual site).
So for all the posturing Zango has been doing you can only imagine how much this is going to twist the Zango PR guys shorts. And I bet he thought he was going to have the weekend off too.
Guess again scum, because if there is one thing we all know is that Paperghost never takes time off. And is always honing his killer moves against adware bad guys.

Well it seems that once again, Zango, our favorite provider of adware found in some amazingly perverse content, has been exposed by Paperghost.
They really should just add him to the payroll, he does more to regulate their affiliates that the guy who is supposed to be doing it for them. Read More Here

Still yet another case of an adware company using MySpace to spread its bundles of 'joy'. This is the second company in two weeks caught doing this. Lets hope MySpace gets on the ball and tries to do something about it. Until then, MySpace users beware.

Well after getting some negative press back in May, the newly formed but still-doing-business-as-usual 180Solutions-cum Zango is once again duping users on MySpace.
See, you really can't change the spots on a leopard. Or is that the stripes on a zebra? Regardless, read more here
