    Former BF employee starts "GiveSmart"
    Looks like another insider viewing the network stats goes into the corrupt "fell good cause" marketing field. Need the super sleuths to put a spotlight on this BHO ... http://shopping.givesmart.com/cgi/client.plx
    www.Givesmart.com (the Company) provides a shopping service (the Service) that utilizes shopping reminder software (the Software). By downloading the Software you agree to the following terms of this Agreement and to the Privacy Statement below.

    Carrozzi's bio (http://www.givesmart.com/givesmart/aboutus.aspx)...

    http://www.supportamberalert.com/
    Curious why it's been discontinued. Anyone know?

    Same guys here:
    http://www.savingswatch.com
    looks like straight rebates, not "contributions"

    It's a TopMoxie application

    All those ones you listed Donuts are TopRebates web sites.

    What's his hook into TopRebates incentive marketing types renown for blackhat affiliate tricks to set cookies? Is their a Mollander in the woodpile? I see SavingsWatch.com is actively into the typical SERP coupon+trademark spamming.. http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...q=Savingswatch Nothing new there, as couponers refuse to cleanup the corrupt base of practitioners praying they get free run to attack merchants at the point of sale.

    Thanks for clarifying. So you're saying the latest iteration from this group (the givesmart app) is a TopMoxie platform while they previous ones I posted as being theirs were TopRebate types?

    I wonder where TrustNo1 is with his ***** about all us whiners.
    Hey Trust . . . do you consider this a group of conspiracy theorists too?
    No, because I was right . . . you do only follow and jab at your select few.

    There's actually a pretty active thread about it, with former BF employee participating, wish i could link to but it would just be *************** Can I link to the Google results which goes to the thread or would that be a violation of ABW rules too?
