EDITORIAL: The End Of Wink-Nod

One year ago today, the U.S. Secret Service arrived in the small town of Quincy, Fla., and changed history. By executing a search warrant at the headquarters of AdSurfDaily Inc. — and going about their business in very public fashion — agents sent the message that the so-called autosurf “industry” no longer had a safe haven anywhere on U.S. soil.

In all of 2008, the Secret Service issued exactly six national news releases. One of them dealt with AdSurfDaily. Given the special nature of the work the Secret Service performs and the extreme competence of the men and women who serve their country in this unique fashion — and the fact that ASD merited a news release — well, connect the dots.

The wink-nod days are over for the surfs.

Promoter? “Industry” expert? “Team” organizer? Good luck. You’re going to have to work twice as hard for your ill-gotten gains (with the prospect of getting busted always in play), and your forum spiel and YouTube videos are becoming less and less effective. They make you look like a person who will do anything — up to and including pretending the Secret Service never visited Quincy — to pocket a commission.

Agents exposed the “industry” for exactly what it is: a poison field laced with land mines and trip wires and occupied by schemers and liars and criminals and money-launderers.
