    Do you use afsrc=1 in your masked links?
    Okay, I keep seeing people saying that we should use afsrc=1, but (a) I almost never see it out on the web and (b) it makes my nicely masks links look like "Hi, I'm an affiliate link!". So, I figured I'd just ask the question... do you use afsrc=1 in your masked links?

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Please define your definition of 'masked'

    affsrc=1 should be used on server side redirects.

    Thanks, Haiko.

    For the purpose of this poll, a "masked link" is a link to a server-side redirect. For example, http://www.your-cool-site/redirect/427 or http://www.your-cool-site/bounce?resource=427.

    Thanks for pointing out my lack of specificity.
