    I had someone sign up for my forum and do a sales pitch for a CD. It's this person's only post. Looks like he/she copied and pasted record company spin to my forum.

    The poster didn't even put a link to the album anywhere!

    Well, I put a link in there for them. "Click here to by [album] at [merchant]". Yes, it's a commissionable link.

    I almost feel like a parasite: making money off of someone else's work.

    But then, this person didn't try to make money with their work.

    I should mention that I didn't edit their post: I replied to it. I feel less parasite-like in that regard.

    I've had cases when someone has copied an image off my site complete with the affiliate link that it has, so they're saying something like "check out product xyz" and sending the traffic straight to the merchant via my link. I've made quite a few sales that way

    I wish someone over at google would do that for me and place it on their homepage. There's a lot of white space I could help them fill.
