    So where do you guys stand on "black hat" / "gray hat" methods? Personally, I have mixed feelings.

    I don't suppose I would feel too bad about paying for ads on adware, and using it for CPA, but I would never actually put adware on a site.


    Where do you draw the line?

    Basically, "black hat" techniques rely on exploiting things [mostly advertisements] to generate clickthroughs without any real content or original work.
