    Sarah or Stephen,

    I got the 'Holiday dash for Cash' email and started clicking around and saw that TechBargains.com is the new winner of the Titanium award ... so you are still awarding the award after you donated the prize money to cancer?

    Please see: http://www.linkshareclub.com/titanium_q42003.html

    ... which shows the below.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Consensis is neither Linkshare nor CJ/BeFree employ anyone who even knows what HTML means. Don't expect them to be able to edit a webpage when they have trouble figuring out how to read e-mail.

    Haiko.

    LS is a tad slow updating those pages at times.

    The first pic..Q4 2003. Techbargains was the replacement winner for 24houredeals for the first Titanium Award.

    On your second link, they've not updated their site yet. This happened with the first award after the change and I got all confused about who had won what and had to post. They fixed the graphic after my post.

    On the LSClub index page with the Q1 graphic, it looks like they just grabbed that as an image holder, because it had been saying Q2 EdealsDealsEtc in that graphic size.

    I don't think it's anything more than them not maintaining that part of their site very well. It does lead to confusion however.

    I clicked thta link Haiko and got a POPUP congratulating me for winning a Reality Casino FREE 100.00 funded account.

    redirects via some Eurotrash URL and ends up on Usseek.com trying to drain Overture and Google computer terms accounts with junk traffic clicks. Wonder how many cookies were set in that 1 second hijacking put out by some Techbargains partner.

    My BHO drive-by shields are up and my browser has over 3000 restricted sites so who knows what other crap I bypassed.

    Better question this board should ask is who Runs the TechDepot -Computers-4sure and Office Depot programs making them an auto approved participant on ebvery new BHO and Duper cookie stuffer's hit list.
    ____________________________

    correction It's an Al-Quada owned domain and they have 1000's doing typo squatting and BHO drive-bys installs. Ironic isn't it that the Affiliate Industry, The BHO's like 180Solutions -Gator -WhenU, and Google -Yahoo/Overture monitize Muslim terrorists to kill more then just this industry.

    Yeah good find on the squatter. And the fact they are targeting affiliates domains. It'll be fun tracking them down.

    Now I expect you to go out and find me one bad doer each morning before you finish your first cup of coffee.

    Too early for all this confusion.

    No wonder I had to read it 3 times.

    It must be a place setting as when I edited the url to what I thought was the correct address (http://www.linkshareclub.com/titanium_q32004.html I saw the same screen with TechBargains.

    Someone needs to ride someone in their department to get that changed.

    Hi All -

    I have confirmed with my team members who manage LinkShare Club that the graphic was placed in the email and on the site in error and that the award was, in fact, given to charity. Please see our announcement at http://abw.infopop.cc/eve/ubb.x?a=tp...89&m=201108709

    Thank you for communicating with us, even if it just once every few weeks.

    I'm still holding out hope that we'll get some official statement regarding the recording glitch from last month. Maybe you'll comment on that when you post here again in few more weeks???

    Question TechBargains


    TechBargains must be getting pretty good traffic as their Alexa rank, (2005 March 5), is 3,180. Not bad.

    I just did a whois, (2005 March 5), on TechBargains at whois.sc.

    Interesting. . .
