What’s in a name?

Gator, one of the first and most prevalent forms of spyware found on the internet and on computers everywhere, is saying that their product is not spyware, but adware.

Gator forced PC Pitstop to cease calling their product spyware, in favor of the adware verbage.

Bull-hooey I say. Gator is an evil program that feeds on the underbelly of networked PC’s like a flea. It’s spyware, malware, and rotten trash.

  1. Incoming bad analogy:

    Crap would still smell like crap even if we called it something else.

  2. If you wanted to put a sort of Capulet turn on it:

    Crap by any other name would smell as foul.
