    Got 2 different drive by installs last days. The first one was Save now. The second one adding an extra column to my google search results page. While conducting a search.

    While performing a search for, for example “Sony Handycam” this extra column will give Ah-Ah PPC in the feel and look of a google search.
    Also Whenu.com (the savenow popup) is frequent popping up with so called “search results” in stead of an advertising popup.
    How many of you will jump on the bandwagon of this type of parasite behavior and go for the cheap click troughs they give….?

    The Ah-Ha guy was invited here to post by me. Myseld and others challenged him with some parasite feed questions he carefully dodged. Now we see them all following in the footsteps of Looksmart and Overture feeding the BHO scumbags spinning driveby installs as part of their REACH.

    Moral of the story is if it pertains to online advertising its crooked as hell as that industry makes lawyers look like saints.

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..

    That is really, really bad...

    I'm glad we filed the class action suit, at least i know our domain is clean from pops and parasites. The minute we find one we feed to our legal and follow with a suit...

    Andy just out of curiosity are you able to share approximately how many affiliates have joined you in action against the parasites?

    Heyder,

    Our legal team has been the one contacting merchants and affiliates. I do know there are a few that have had an interest, also know there a few "major" players involved....

    I've not been directly involved for some time now, i've left it in the hands of our E-com Director and legal.

    I did speak with Shawn (overstock) on the cruise, we had very positive talks regarding the issue ...

    PS Andy thanks for that invitation. I regret I didn't read it until you were already on the cruise. We spent most of our time in clearwater and enjoyed the sunshine and beaches.
