    Merchant Website links in Affiliate user interface...
    Used to see this issue every now and again - now it appears to be all merchants.

    In the Merchant Info section some rocket scientist at LinkShare has decided to code the field so http:// is automatically added before EVERY link/URL entered in by the merchant. This causes an automatic redirect to - which is a parked page and serving up PPC links.


    Doesn't ANYONE test anything anymore?

    I noticed this happening the other day when researching a merchant but didn't realize it was such a widespread issue. I ran across it several times today. It definitely needs to be fixed, very annoying.
