    Thumbs down WTF is up with PriceBandit.com
    I thought WhenU was banned for outright thievery from the major networks for repeat TOS, C of C, and Adendum violations. Look at the merchant list of this BHO operated by WhenU. http://www.pricebandit.com/Pbandit

    I see Overstock.com - Footsmart- eBay -Smartbargains -BestBuy -Gap -1-800flowers all the GSI folks -Shoebuy -shoes.com -Blair -Amazon -Buy.com -Target -CompUSA -Gateway -Cooking.com -HP -eBags -KBtoys -Office Depot -Sony -Petsmart etc etc... all in this rogue BHO and their companion Aluria powered Ucontrol searchbar hijacker called WhenUsearch. ( www.whenusearch.com ) Missy Ward, and group, seem to be pulling and end-run on network banishment as the ABW merchants remain silent on this obvious commission and cookie stuffing exploit.

    Add-in another one new to me ... "Integrated Contextual Engine
    ICE is an Integrated Contextual Engine that is used to power contextual content for many popular applications and websites. ICE enables the delivery of relevant and valuable information based on user behavior to include browsing habits, URLs and keywords.

    You downloaded ICE when you installed the an ICE-supported product or when you visited a Web site promoting the use of ICE on local desktops.

    ICE serves many of your favorite applications and Web sites to display special offers, discounts, and coupons that are exclusive to you but only if you have ICE." http://www.whenu.com/products_ice.html

    Webmaster's... Mike and Charlie

    "What have you done today to put real value into a referral click...from a shoppers viewpoint!"

    And also a cookie from the aluriasoftware.com/spyware-safe/logo/ that is on this thread.
