    Just curious to people's opinions on this, merchants too. Let's say a company that is considered "Parasitic" by some also has a regular clean shopping site. A lot of merchants have dropped the "parasitic" site but partner with them on their "clean site" Not so much curious about the poll, just wondering how people feel about this.

    I would be too suspicious that they would use the affiliate links from the clean site, that the clean site would be just a "front".

    Once a parasite - always a parasite.

    Sounds like someone wants to have their affiliates and eat them, too.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Trust,

    Since you did not name a company, were you posing the question to see if you could get away with it yourself?

    Sandra Are you seriously asking me if i asked the question to see if i can get away with being a parasite myself? If so, what a stupid, uninformed remark. Take a look at your PM.

    Dang Trust,

    Simply frustrated with the blanket ABC merchant comments.

    After reading this thread it was time to stir your blood. Yes I admit it I was stirring the pot...
