    Title may be a bit misleading. But it pretty much is one of the worst things i ever saw.

    Basically, CPALead had a reversal from an advertiser (Or so they say). So instead of wearing it and working their way out. They are wearing it, plus to "recoup" the costs, by putting a CPM banner on everyones gateways.

    Now i dont know the exact number of publishers with cpalead, but it would be in the thousands easily, and each of those prob being in thousands of impressions to the gateway. So they will be profiting MASSIVELY from placing CPM banners on everyones gateways.

    What pissed me off is they never told anyone. Hell the only place they have had a small word about it is the thread over at DP. I only checked there after i saw the massive banner on my site.

    Yet another reason to run your own gateway on your own site and avoid the drama, the shaving and the CPA conversion payment sharing.

    I think they have turned it off. GO over to DP (gasp). And you can read what he said in the thread. But definitely pissed me off.
