The truth from a traffic exchanger

Recently a traffic exchange blog asked their users if they built lists. I find this answer enlightening as it seems to hit a nerve.
Wow another post cool, I do have a list 450 on my list,but not one is a buyer,so i have not made any thing from them,My downline at Maxtrafficpro is where i make some money about 15.00 every 2-3 months,and that is after 4 years of work and over 800.00 in fees from traffic exchanges,why am i telling you this,people think if they build a list/downline that they will make money,but that is not true some might,but most will not,you are going to spend more than you make."
Now if you look at this reponse it paints a very different picture:
"I have a list of about 12k people that I’ve built up over the course of 4 years of hard marketing. I’ve made a ton from my list however the key again just isn’t building one its knowing how to treat it and maintain it."
I think the real message to take away from this is that yes you can earn money from traffic exchanges but it takes a lot of time and a lot of work.

So getting traffic is that easy?

"But! I can skip surfing other people's sites and just buy impressions, forcing people to look at my stuff without having to share or read anything. Sweet! By payng a fee, I can guarantee that 3,000 readers are going to visit the main page of my web site. I can also surf other people's sites and add even more visitors to my site. This sounds fair and cool, and maybe it could even be a way to pick up some new blogs to read." I took this quote from a forum on traffic exchanges and I fear that the author is rejoicing a little prematurely. It always comes back to the same issue and as yet I have not received any convincing answer. How can a traffic exchange ensure that my site receives targeted traffic?
In my view - and I have thought about it - it can't. Those who surf traffic exchanges will only have as clients those who spend there time surfing on traffic exchanges. It is that logical, who else?
