    Funny - I like this one:::

    "When we discover a partner in violation of our code, we shut them down and, when necessary, take legal action to avert future bad behavior," 180solutions President Daniel Todd said in a statement."

    If that's not the pot calling the kettle black...
    180solutions -- Trying their best to seem legit..

    After all these years, they've finally figured out that *GASP* some of their downloads are *GASP* not wanted?

    Too little...too late...

    The opportunity to become credible has passed.

    Who are they going to blame for making their crap difficult to impossible to remove from one's PC without melting it with a road flare?

    Who are they going to blame regarding how their software overwrites the affiliate code in an existing cookie (or how it writes a new cookie where none should exist) so they can STEAL credit for sales commissions that they did NOT earn?

    See Ben Edelman's documented evidence of it here:
