    Q for Todd: Is Shop At Home Select an affiliate in good standing?
    Quick question, perhaps easy, surely best answered by Todd:

    Is Shop At Home Select an affiliate in good standing? Is there anything about SAHS that merchants, other affiliates, and the community at large need to know? Any violations of applicable CJ policies? Or is SAHS in the clear?

    Is that a loaded question?

    simple removal http://shopathomeselect.antispytools.com/ or http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/p...x?id=453076082

    Description: ShopAtHome installs itself in the Winsock layer of your computer and redirects visits to merchant sites in order to take the affiliate fees from them automatically without your knowledge.

    The SAHAgent installed by ShopAtHome is a Winsock 2 layered Service Provider which intercepts all incoming an outgoing network data and in cases modifies the data to insert its affiliate information in order to get sales credits for items you purchase. This type of spyware is also known as browser hijacking. The SAHAgent is always running and cannot be disabled without a full uninstall which is extremely difficult to do manually. The software gathers and aggregates the user’s Internet browsing behaviour and sends it to ShopAtHomeSelect servers.... http://research.sunbelt-software.com...threatid=10773

    Now they are the info scraping and cookie cannon frontend for the Belarco group and have a amazing privacy policy considering they are Spyware capable of using clickstream and keyword loggers to automate PPCSE click scripts as side revenue... http://www.shopathomeselect.com/privacy.asp?sGUID={87E0BEED-5FD7-4A74-ABEE-29C9A1189158} and impressive merchant list agreeing to pay them more then any domain bound affiliate makes... http://www.shopathomeselect.com/all_merchants.asp?sGUID={87E0BEED-5FD7-4A74-ABEE-29C9A1189158}

    Belcaro Group Inc., parent of ShopAtHomeSelect.com, is an active member of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and we comply with all provisions of the DMA's strict privacy policies. The DMA's Privacy Promise to American Consumers took effect for all DMA member companies on July 1, 1999. It raised the bar for privacy practices by ensuring DMA members adhere to certain privacy practices, and by challenging all non-DMA industry members to meet this rigorous standard as well. If you would like to learn more about the DMA privacy policy, please visit www.thedma.org Web site.

    Now some interesting reading while we await Todd's answer show typical Adware/Spyware bundling agreements to juice the SAHS spyware package with offshore affiliate infestation creeks like Avenue Media/New Haven Office Center/Curacao, AN. Or email us at support@avenuemedia.com

    Multi-million$$$ www.BELCAROGROUP.COM always comes up blank in case Todd want's to browse their advertising relationships.

    Stuffing BHO's into the holes on the commission ship, prior to the big storm, is a real effort when trying to get one of every breed! The largest greed driven eat so much green a day they are Gluttonous...

    Unfortunatly, this kind of direct question to corporate heads requires a lot of finnesse to craft the slyest of answers.

    Corporate greed has to first cover the Corporate Butt, then they are able come clean with the non-tainted affiliates about the dirty deeds of their prize possessions.

    As I recall you were a strong supporter not long ago. [2004]
    CJ made a BIG MISTAKE when they mishandled YOU.
