    Haiko,

    I have been reading through the threads on Parasiteware and found it very enlightening.
    However, I do find something confusing. You told me before Stephen Messer cleaned up Linkshare from all the parasites. Yet, on your list of merchants to boycott(as of 7/15/02) - the following Linkshare merchants are listed. Is this correct?

    Cooking.com
    Orbitz
    Overstock

    Shouldn't they have stopped by now? Please let me know - I am affiliated with all of them. I will drop them based upon your answer.

    Thanks,

    Janet

    I think that list needs to be updated Janet. AFAIK Overstock is Parasite Free.

    Janet,

    I have to take out that Javascript that auto inserts todays date and remove those merchants from the list. The Linkshare change of TOS specifically precludes parasites from popping up on another affiliate site.

    As you have read, Shawn (Overstock) has already taken a very proactive stance against parasiteware, so they obviously don't belong on that list. Now, a Company like orbitz, does deal with Gator, Pays for hybrid deals on other adnetworks like fastclick and utilizes other marketing tactics that are "predatory" so I'd rather go with OneTravel, they are clean and Cooking.com has been off the radar for some time.

    Haiko,

    You mention being able to read Overstock's response. Where can I read this? Didn't see anything posted.

    Thanks in advance.
