Angry Zonify spawns multiple popups with their banners!

This seems to be the latest trend with unscrupulous ad networks. I just visited one of my sites where I run Zonify network banners using default chain from FastClick and I was bombarded with multiple delayed popup windows that looked like ExitFuel popups. The banner itself was an innocent Dr.Scholl's "Be a Survivor!" Win an African Safari Vacation in Kenya, and the script that created hidden ExitFuel window with multiple delayed popups was either from ads.adtegrity.net or from mediadevil.spinbox.net . As I didn't sign up for these popups and I don't want to have anything to do with a company that trys to pull something like this with their publishers, I'm removing all Zonify banners from my site. I wish I can sue them for the breach of contract, but unfortunately (for them) there was no contract signed.

This wasn't a complaint, I didn't earn enough money with them to have the need for an official complaint. And I'm not really seeking any resolution for this. I'm just trying to inform other webmasters about something I think they would like to know. I really don't care if this post gets deleted as I was just trying out Zonify for several days. Good thing I was paying close attention to their banners....

Fatale,

I have been speaking with Aakshay from Zonify and he told me he was running Media Devil ads. Media Devil was running pops in Zonify campaigns without Zonify knowing. As soon as Aakshay found out, he immediately removed that banner from the rotation... All the banners now are pop free, and he apologizes for the inconvieience.
