    I beleive a visit to 123greetings gets you a doubleclick cookie. I checked with AdAware. I've also seen the Gator download and so many pop-ups your browser will crash after navigating a few pages. I removed their link immediately.

    Jasonm the word FREE nowadays is almost always the enticement for hidden downlaods of spyware/adware and sales of e-mail addresses to list brokers. Think Free Porn and you'll see the underlying ebiz tactics of the FREEBEE sites who will stoop to using any means for monitizing their sites.
