    I've been noticing this spamvertized site popping up elsewhere, but why is it on MR? I'd like a free Mac Mini, so I clicked on the link. Does this click-through send money to MR?

    Yeah, these ads are provided through the ad network. We don't directly choose the ads.

    Do you make commision on a "per click" basis or do people have to actually sign up for the offer?

    We make money based on interested consumers seeing ads they are interested in. :)

    And we could get very penalized for good-intentioned users trying to "help" the site. So, behave as you normally would...

    I tried to register with this site, but all I got was another login window. The site claims that my e-mail address is registered, but it won't take my address and password. I tried to get it to send my password to the registered e-mail address, but I haven't received it. Maybe it's because I didn't click the checkboxes for "I would like to receive promotional emails from third-parties" and "I would like to receive promotional emails from Gratis Internet." It looks like user 14148107 won't be adding a new "downline" member. :rolleyes:
