    Another piece of crap floating in the commission pool. You can bet they are 100% non-compliant for both the CoC and Linkshares addendium.

    Dare to have any network come forth and explain how this commission stealing wank can qualify for Duper or affiliate status. Globix.net is also a spammer/porn hosting operation as if these BHO's weren't into every shady crevice of ecommerce.

    Deja vu of the Gator application with an affiliate program in the works. Wonder which network will be hosting this jewel seeking to rip-off commissions. Just Google "Cydoor Technologies" for some eye openers as to what type of folks your passing all your shoppers privacy, ID and credit card info too!

    One nice thing about uncovering a new network sponsored BHO like TOPicks is their immediate merchant list. Shows all which AM's are susceptable from jump street on getting their Ads in front of their competitors via a BHO.

    from the look of it they have hundreds more merchnats.

    TOPicks also has distribution agreements with other popular Internet software, that provide TOPicks as a bundled bonus to their users. If you have TOPicks on your computer, and you have not installed it yourself, this is probably how it was installed. These types of distribution agreements enable software companies to keep great Internet software free.

    Wonderful list Mike!

    Had a feeling about a few of those leeches, on to deleting a few more merchants!

    You need to post that list every time you post, a new type of signature so everyone will not forget!

    SandraR the best list would be the Names of the AM firms and their merchnat programs thta automatically accept every new BHO to come on the scene. Me thinks there is a group of AM's who signup before these type wanks even formally appear as part of the network endorsement/acceptance policy. We know about the enduser choice copout...how about letting the actual merchant's getting involved in the decision, rather then their rubber stamp pimps for the Ad Whores.

    Same as I've said before
    The networks don't want to do anything about these applications so why would people stop making them.
    If someone(network) had the balls to for once just say no...

    Hi Mike

    Actually I just check, those links they show are not tagged with tracking, they are straight links , for everyone listed I believe.

    Anyway we'll seek and destroy if they managed to slip in.

    Cheers
