    You'll need to define what you consider a parasite. Many affiliates consider Ebates and Upromise parasites, while the networks don't.

    Snowman, that is a great point...I'm fairly new, so I was hoping someone with experience can shed some light. FROM an affiliate's point of view (B/c in the end that is what matters), what is a parasite? Any longstanding affiliates want to take a stab at this?

    ParasiteWare™ - is technology (including, but not restricted to, browser helpers, browser plug-ins, toolbars and pop ups/sliders) that knowingly or unknowingly undermines or removes another affiliate's ability to compete by changing, intercepting or redirecting an affiliate link. Parasiteware™ may be installed knowingly or unknowingly by the end user, altering their normal web browser functions and/or installing a third party application that works through the user's altered browser.
