Do affiliates generally consider any form of loyalty program a parasite. I am talking about sites that require the customer to go to the loyalty program website without any reminders to do so.

From the top of the page, it does explain it.
ParasiteWare™ - is technology (including, but not restricted to, browser helpers, browser plug-ins, toolbars and pop ups/sliders) that knowingly or unknowingly undermines or removes another affiliate's ability to compete by changing, intercepting or redirecting an affiliate link. Parasiteware™ may be installed knowingly or unknowingly by the end user, altering their normal web browser functions and/or installing a third party application that works through the user's altered browser.

There was a script a few years ago we all supported ... anti-adbuster, it detected blocking software and then promoted the user to turn on ads to see the [affiliate] site.
I must say it's pretty sad and pathetic that affs have to be constantly re-inventing themselves via creativity to fairly compete and get their ads seen because the bloody networks who get paid the big bucks can't even ensure that the merchants ads are shown.
