    Angry UrbanMall - Big leak!
    DFF added a new merchant - UrbanMall. I signed up for them and was approved right away. I was setting up links and clicked on one which brought me to a landing page for several brands that they offer. Seems that all of the links go to this page. On this page is a link to their home page so I clicked on it. To my surprise was an assortment of their affiliate links to places like Dr.Jays, etc as well as a directory of their affiliate links to various places. Once your customer leaves this landing page and ends up on their home page, you lose them if they click on one of UrbanMall's own affiliate links. What a rip off! I was going to list them on two other sites that I have -
    NO WAY!

    They sell some stuff on their own but it's not a merchant I would touch. Affiliate links everywhere, Adsense, you name it.

    Why would CJ even allow something like this?

    CJ doesn't care.

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.
