    Zoo Zoo Pets
    Try searching Google for Zoo Zoo Pets (yeah I know a misspelling.) Click on the top affiliate listing you see there and notice how you get a pop up when trying to exit their home page. It then takes you to Amazon with the affiliate's site URL in the address bar. Behavior like this should not be allowed. But, I bet plenty of grandparents are buying though this site.

    I'm sure that is in violation of Amazons T&C. If they make any sales Amazon will likely cancel the commission.

    Wow, pretty sneaky.

    I hate those pop-up windows that don't let you exit right away.

    I wonder if there is a way to disenable that for all sites that have that so you can just exit. Javascript of some sort I guess.

    That page appears to contain only a bunch of Amazon affiliate widgets, not an actual amazon.com page. I'm not certain how it would be against the Amazon TOS.

    Edited to add... Looks like I may have spoken too soon. There's also a frame containing content to make it look like Amazon...
