The Article

Based on the article above seems like some believe it too be considered adware and or diverts commissions and traffic. Based on my findings and testing of greasemonkey I find it too not be adware and does not divert commissions.

Grease Monkey can convert URLS (that are not links) example ( in text only format) can convert too a link So the user will have to make the changes and it only changes text and incomplete urls(links) into complete links. As you can see in the video clip below that the subject line of in the cj forum in firefox has been converted to a link but in IE it is not a link just a url in text format. See the 35 second video clip below.
