    I like the suggestion of methodically tracking this data. Indeed, I like it so much that, since June 2004, I've been making monthly snapshots of substantially all 180's ads targeted at all domains. Needless to say, I have software that helps me make these snapshots -- fortunately I don't have to do it by hand. (I developed these systems in the course of drafting my 180solutions research and article of last year.)

    If anyone has suggestions as to how to distribute this data -- who would be interested and how it might best be presented -- I'd be happy to discuss the possibilities. At present I primarily share it with merchants who don't like being targeted by 180 (whether competitors' popups or rogue affiliate cookie-stuffing). But maybe there's some sensible way to distribute it more broadly.

    Tonight, I was using the Linkshare interface to build links to Nordstrom. I made the link and clicked on it. It worked.. took me to Nordstrom. In about 30 seconds there was a flash on my screen and POP went the Zango with a forced click in the screen to NORDSTROM! I didnt make a note of the offender. Well I was looking for information to build my page with this new link and about 10 minutes later another affilate makes the Zango POP! Yep this time they didn't mess with cookies as far as I can tell but the did come up with a nice page for shoppers who clicked on my link could see. http://www.orangescarf.com/merchant.asp?cat=100&mer=423

    I have to add this in:

    After typing that last post, I closed the screen to the offending affiliate. And what to my supprise? POOP or POP Went the Zango. Picture attached! Look at the Address Bar!
    So the Raffaello Tie company is targeting affiliates? What's going on here in this crazy mixed up world? Glad I don't have any TIES to this merchant.


    With all this poop goin on, whens a guy to rest?

    Your typical dime a dozen template deal-coupon and merchant directory site. All effort goes into SE spamming and paying to ride the 180Solutions theftware train with trademark and domain targets. Hey you AM's running programs like the Tie pushing perp start targeting these fine affiliate folks with Zango and their clones. Overwrite the forced cookie creeps like the good old liberal socialist Josh as he parades around doing his orangescarf dance.
