    Ok so hear me out. I was recently at a party with a bunch of family members who I hadn't seen for awhile. We got talking about what we do for a living and I explained I work Online in various ways but most IM.

    I was stunned when my Second-Cousin said to me ... "Ah so you're to blame for wrecking anything fun" ... I had to ask him why he though that and this was the reason he gave.

    "Well for starters anytime you click on a Youtube video you get shitty "come buy this" comments all over the place. Anytime I search for tips on how to do something on Youtube all I get are videos with some guy discussing how "his system" is the best instead of actually telling me the tips. Not to mention when websites give you something for free you have to "sign up" or "like" or "tweet" about them first. I hate Internet Marketers"
    and with that he walked of.

    I can kind of see where he is coming from, Unfortunately as the internet and computers have gotten cheaper and schooling has shot down it's only natural for people to want to sell stuff online, be it a product or an offer.

    And because of that there are now a ton of "hate calling them this but Newbies" online who don't really understand what it means to be an IM'er but believe all the shitty WSO's out there saying "Copy and Paste this into this and earn $$$ / £££" effectively turning them all into spammers.

    So what's your take on all this, does he have a point? or is he just misguided.

    Thank you for your time :)

    He has a point, as a user I hate what Internet has to offer as well. However, unlike him I blame Google, Facebook and the "desperate crowd of wannabe IM" all together.

    your cousin mostly described blackhat marketers.

    you go on youtube and the first comment is a spam, no one likes it.

    its not only us to blame, the general public is also to blame, the only reason ppl are still doing those tactics, is because it works, and ppl fall for those things

    Just show him an Adsense payment letter for $20,000 and tell him to shut the fuck up and go back to youtube and help line your pockets further.

    And we hate your cousin.

    Seriously though, there is a lot of spam out there, but if you really want something, you'll find a way to get it. If you don't know how to Google something properly, you shouldn't be on the internet anyways.

    when any one will make money that money will come out of pockets of some one else.

    example= yt+ppd
    you got paid $xx from network , advertiser paid $xxx to netowrk , leads buy product of $xxxx from advertiser.

    one of lead is house owner , you paid him $xx Rent.


    AND

    they cycle goes on.

    Your cousin is at fault. If he really do not know how to dig out real information then he really deserves that spam.

    To my mind your cousins attitude is terrible. There are tons of free stuff in the interntet, but it doesn't mean that you will get it fast or easy. This is the main idea. Want something for free? Spend time searching. Want it right now? Pay for it!

    Tell your cousin there is no free lunch, not even on the internet.

    "Not to mention when websites give you something for free you have to "sign up" or "like" or "tweet" about them first"

    LOL at this freeloader mindset, if you did not sign up, like or tweet in the first place, guess what, it would not have been freely available on the internet and people would have not put in the effort to create it. No one works for free.

    He sounds like a person that would not convert to a lead or sale online.
    Tell him we hate him too. We hate freeloaders that don't convert.

    You know we all have that one bro who is the biggest cock block ever. Welcome to the internet marketers cock block. You know who I mean, the self righteous attention whores who have to announce to the world that they are unliking a page or leaving a forum. Or that 1 friend on Facebook who disables their account on a weekly basis.

    Your cousin probably likes the spammy ads Google places everywhere? He likes coca cola ads on TV doesn't he. He likes playstation ads and xbox whatever doesn't he. Yeah he does.

    Well there's news for him: online = offline marketing.

    Tell your cousin the answer is simple: stop clicking on the free offers! Eventually, the kiddie IMers will move on to greener pastures and all will be right again on the Internet.
