    Best starting point to find out who is stuffing cookies just turn off your popup blockers and find the obvious ones listed here... http://www.dealzconnection.com

    Ms.B, Ben and Poon's cookie monster can delve under the covers as these deal-coupon-reward sites put the Holiday shopping cookie stuffing tricks into high gear.

    I randomly tested 4 of those displayed and all 4 were stuffing cookies by forced popunders loading the merchants sites. No expertise necessary...just turn off your popup blockers. You can bet the skillfully hidden cookie setting schemes are used by over 50% of the thousands of coupon-deal-rebate and get paid to surf sites. Nice article in Revenue magazine on the "incenters" who have reached the cult status of the former e-mail spammers with AM's throughtout the industry. Those AM's know the tricksters, and turn a blind eye to it, to hype their figures as it's only their merchant clients paying for the forced click schemes. They lump them into the group of professional SEO/SEM and page spammers. Their other favorite group is the professional browser spammers ....the BHO's.
