    Is Linksynergy Spyware?
    I clicked on my NCSREPORTING link and i notice before it hits the site i see linksynergy flash as a link

    does this mean nscreporting is using spyware or some form to screw over their affiliates?

    You should see that all of your Linkshare affiliate links begin with http://click.linksynergy.com No, it's not spyware.

    Those spyware cleaners go overboard. They classify our affiliate cookies from most known affiliate networks as spyware.

    Yes they do.

    I have "SpyBot Search and Destroy" which is a program to remove Spyware from my computer - It identifies cookies as spyware and removes them too.


    I heard that Pand Softwares anti-spyware doesn't do this - that is, it doesn't mark affiliate cookies as spyware.

    In case you are promoting anti-spyware then promote Panda Software's anti spyware.

    And if you look in SiteAdvisor.com - a place where the evaluate sites to be good, bad or ugly

    many top affiliate sites have been marked with
    - "oh but this site sets cookies" under "cookie anoyances" title

    Thousands of people use siteadvisor, all of them now think that cookies are bad. Thanks to SiteAdvisor for making our lives a bit more difficult.

    what do they want - free referals?
