    DivX, a CJ advertiser, bundles Gator into its download.

    Goodbye DivX. I'm pulling you off my site.

    Good Move.

    I find it ashame that it took a CNN story about a Harvard Study about Gator for you to realize that the divx free download had GAIN, though.

    Thats not meant to be an attack against you personally, but it shows, like affiliates promoting ebates, just how big the problem is, and how big the lack of information is.

    If you could fill me in on the other softwares/merchants that Gator is bundled with, I'll take your comment as very helpful and not an attack.

    I think you should be more ashamed of the other affiliates who knew about this but continues to promote the merchants.

    On a similar note, have you ever wondered why even with near 100% reversal, there are still affiliates who promote shoes avenue?

    You can, however, download it without Gator as I did 4 months ago at least....No gator on my machine.

    This is news to me today too. Has anyone spoken with anyone at DivX.com? I've got them on my site so I guess this means I'm a dummy too . . . unless we can turn some heads around. If not, it's the axe of course.
