It seems to me that your beef should be with advertisers who choose to avoid the content network
And I'm one of 'em, bigtime. Content must convert in order to make sense for advertisers. I took all my clients out last year - I'm starting to phase them back in, but at MUCH lower CPC; pennies on the dollar. And unless or until it starts to pay off, that's where we're going to stay. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
