View as plain text  
My money is on that the person who is getting "this gator crap" has a a
peice of spyware installed on their machine (gator and/or savenow.exe). This
is an app that launches addware based on your surfing habits. I believe they
are the same people who were serving up the infamous X10 Camera adds.

My suggestion, check your applications list and look for the following:

savenow.exe
gator*.exe
weather.exe

Yes and think before you type,  "I may have to consider using another
database."
That shows real maturity.  First of all if you are really that important of
a customer and have the ability to influence your organizations database
useage decisions, and if this really angered you off that bad, then you
would contact MySQL directly, and voice your concerns with them.  Second, if
you are just a small site, or a one guy shop, or something like that, then
you threatening to end the use of thier product is really going ot have them
reeling.  Finally, no one on the lists cares.

Next time try this.  Hey all, I have noticed everytime I point my browser at
a mysql site I get gaterware popups and stuff.  Has anyone else noticed
this?  Is it something intentional done by MySQL or just a site the software
likes.  Anyone know of a good way to remove this software.  Its just really
annoying.  Thanks...
