I appreciate your point with "type-in" traffic MartiniBuster... but plenty of these sites can be found in the SERPs. Not only Google SERPS but Yahoo and MSN SERPs. Why should parked domains rank well in SERPs? In my opinion they are MFAs that have the blessing of Google since they can have a title that is indexed by SEs like the dailyjoke site I mentioned previously.
Also it looks like the ads are in plain html so they will be indexed by other bots. I think this is just promoting spam on the net and putting one more click between the person and the content they are after.(IMHO)
