To be fair, it's not just Aureate (Radiate) - there's Conducent (TimeSink),
Transcom, Comet, GoHip, Web3000 - all listed at the site
(Steve Gibson's site isn't exactly easy to navigate to find the OptOut
stuff, so I'd advise using the direct link)
P.S. I have nothing against adware as a concept, it just seems to have been
implemented so far by people who give me the impression of either being
crooked or incompetent - at the very least, poorly thought out. My own
personal favourite to slag off at any opportunity is Conducent, who spammed
me (and apparently a list of people harvested from the shareware newsgroups
- hello? Why not just post in the shareware newsgroups?), then after I
complained, told me it wasn't spam because it was "targeted", and then
spammed me again, before selling or giving my email address to one of their
customers to spam me once more.
