    Visit the site chris mentions with dailyedeals - a site he took action against. Visit it for the first time, it sets a linkshare cookie on the first visit, no click, no action, merely visiting the index page - and only the first visit it seems so you may need to check from various ips to see the behavoir.

    Stephen, is this fair? Is this acceptable? Are you going to tell us, oh it is up to the merchant?

    By the way, check their whois, good stuff. Yay! real winner you have there. Promote them to the head of the class, make them a a Linkshare featured affiliate.

    edit to remove actual affiliate url, chris makes it pretty clear, and so can you, its the affiliate site that pops a cookie when you just visit it.

    People, if you want to discuss issues like this that is absolutely wonderful, but do also remember the inherent dangers this may cause you and other affiliates in the future. Believe me, no affiliate here wants to be attacked in a public forum for things that may, or may not be deemed acceptable Linkshare or to a merchant.

    I cannot stress this enough, if you want to point fingers at specific affiliates do this by going DIRECTLY to Linkshare or the merchant in question...This post can so easily be unfairly detrimental to the affiliate mentioned here, whether or not they are guilty of anything at all (not saying they are or are not). This issue may, or may not be against affiliate agreements.

    Although these issues are very important to affiliate marketing, it is still important to be tactful and fair in how we present them and how we point the finger. The last thing that we want to see is affiliates no longer participating here because they were unfairly attacked, or otherwise.

    Enjoy the banter.
