software that acts against the best interests of the user often profiting the developer
most of the software in the android app market is malware claiming to be freeware

showing ads in software violates user privacy as ad rendering is "cross domain": the same finite set of ad servers across ALL sites the user ever visits. how is this not malware?

the COST of ads is loss of privacy: this is not in the best interest of the user, this is ANTITHETICAL to free, this is malware per se

any software that shows ads is malware

all adware is malware
