Will TXT To HEX Kill Norton??

I was wondering if using a TXT to HEX editor to recode one's
affiliate links would kill Norton?
Would the networks and merchants flip out over rewriting the code?
Has anybody tested their affiliate code in HEX to see if the browsers
still see it and if Norton lets it through?
Just wondering . . .

Next to everyone signing up for our program (Shameless Plug), that's quite ingenious of you RadarCat. If it can only work... even blocking parasites and more?
May it be that some programer out there figures this out and offers everyone a way around the Norton. It seems that the Networks are not doing anything since it has been almost 2 1/2 years since Norton started doing this.
Best of luck on your experiment.

The "way around Norton" for network links is not a coding issue; it's a social issue.
Norton are the good guys. They are protecting PC users from the bad guys who surreptitiously hack their PC's and make their lives difficult.
When the networks stop partnering with vermin, the good guys will stop spraying the nest.

I'm a little late in chiming in on this discussion .. but thought I'd add to it.
When we implemented testing many Anti-AD security programs for our Anti-AD Showcase Builder we built, many Anti-AD programs still read the .TXT to HEX script convert workaround we tried in various tests.
I tried to see if we had an independent result exclusively for Norton on this issue in our test log results ... but I couldn't readily find anything. My guess answer would be that it will still see the destination.
