WhenU Certified Spyware Safe by Aluria

I read over at the Spyware Warrior Blog that Aluria has certified WhenU as “spyware safe.” Aluria is an antispyware company with a fat contract from AOL to provide its customers with software. WhenU is best known as an adware program. AFAIK, WhenU is generally installed by users who know they are getting ad supported software.
Adware is a pain, but if you dont like it and can choose to uninstall it, and it uninstalls cleanly, I just dont see what the problem is.
Adware and spyware are two different things.
