    Another merchant taking a stand and doing the right thing. More and more merchants are distancing themselves from these shady operators whose business practices reside in the "gray" area.

    Other merchants would be wise to follow the lead, as they will find their reputations ruined when these practices are outed for what they are, and made illegal.

    Amazing isn't it how the real merchant management for the first time are questioning the 3rd part AM firms pimping for the BHO's. Seems the media is the education weapon as the whole world wants to throw the spyware/adware perps into one of Saddam's people shredders. Don't worry merchants, Webmaster Mike's Safe Haven Sales Network model can have no negative PR value. No BHO will ever get legal access to a Safe Haven cookie.
    Webmaster's... Mike and Charlie
