"Things are probably going to get worse before they get better".

He was a young kid so I let it go, if that came from a Executive at MSN they would be fired on the spot.

You never say that kind of stuff 'on the record'.

In context to what? Such a statement without any context is meaningless. What is going to get worse? The Oilers chance of winning the Stanley Cup? The MSN ad Network or the glitch of the day? Quoting a source without context is quite useless isn't it?

My apologies; I figured you'd all understand that the 'going to get worse beefore..." quote by a MSN customer service rep. was about the AdCenter.

Oh...now I see what you meant...well from our viewpoint everything seems to be going ok for us besides a few minor upsets and lags...business as usual with most large companies involved with something as immense and tricky as the internet and computers...

If a meteorologist on TV says things will get worse before getting better it's kind of like...the truth...why would they get fired?

So MSN Adsense isn't perfect...have you had all of your print advertising always come out perfect? No we haven't...we've had thousand dollar color ads be printed slightly off and look horrible...life goes on...

Nothing is perfect...except for ice cream.

Bostonseo, I think you took that too literally. First of all, that still doesn't help much (Again, no context).

Secondly, you could be talking out your Yahoo! if you still won't specify what the problem was. All Vinyl means is that without specifics, you can blow it way out of proportion.

IE: Was it an issue with the reporting (which seems to be working a lot nicer for me now), an error message (Specifically "Server [Something] Unavailable") which was the "message of the day" as most like to refer to it XD. Anyways, seems like you're creating propaganda is all, not a great reliability when there is no context.

Reviewing other forums, i wonder why us web masters don't create our own PPC program. I mean really, we are never satisfied... :(

If MSN/Microsoft's biggest issue is time out errors/hang time opposed to Google's PRICING issues that actually effect my ROI, I'll take MSN problems any day. Especially since I've seen the product developments over the past few months. Slowly but surely, which shows there is an effort. That's my two-bits...
