Boddit.com is not an affiliate. It scrapes other coupon sites, and doesn't make any money other than the adsense ads on its pages, and perhaps fees that it charges the coupon sites it scrapes. All coupon links link directly through whatever site Boddit lists as the coupon source, not their own affiliate links.
Unfortunately, if you've gotten one of their coupon partners to remove an offending coupon, but the coupon's expiration hasn't hit yet, Boddit will still have it indexed.

Do affiliates agree that Deallocker.com and Boddit.com is a parasite or engaging in unethical affiliate activities?

There is no need to post whois info on a forum like this. If someone is that interested, they can look up the site's whois themselves.

Chuck I'm going to become Saveology(dot)com's new Affiliate Manager starting Monday. What are some of the best ways I can avoid joining a network that has parasites (Staying away from Linkshare all together after listening to Haiko being interviewed by Andrew Wee about the controversy with the OneCause toolbar redirect affiliate links) or what would be the best way to clean the Program so that my affiliate aren't being ripped off?
Is it really just staying away from Affiliate networks that include loyalty programs or Loyalty Ware all together?
