DP people were talking about using it for affiliates
That's an interesting idea but for my kind of topics, I think the peel-aways will just cheapen my sites. I am going to stick to my traditional promotions of including the product in my content as a suggestion or on the sidebar where the uers choose if they want to look or not.
I kind of agree with you that they are not that great for affiliates. I wouldn't stop visiting a site but I wouldn't click on the corner either to look at the ad.
