    I am hard pressed to remember what the categories were but:

    Sierra Trading Post won.
    Fabuloussavings won in one category Keycode.com in another.
    Hallmark + Upromise won.
    Shawn won for most vocal.

    That's just their "visible" way of getting away with a little SE spamming. They never intend visitors to scroll down. Look at their other pages, same crap. I think it's pathetic sites like this get awards.

    LS did worse before.
    To scroll down 15 screens to find the list of their LinkShare merchants must be an innovative way to promote them.

    That's why they are getting the award. That's our good old LinkShare.

    I don't like this:

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=66808

    No wonder they don't do anything about it. They can underpay affiliates and get awards.

    LinkShare give an award to a merchant who during THREE YEARS didn't pay in full the commissions due to their affiliates.

    The event looks cool and exclusive.
    Not to mention the 5/6 ushers / bouncers before you even enter.

    We popped our head in there as we were around that area and unable to get any tickets..

    Congratz to the winners.
