Site Topics - Part II - Page 1004

Why are all links being sent through this viglink thing? Is that someone else trying to steal your affiliate revenue? Or is that a poor design decision as it makes it hard to see what links actually point to...and most of the sites are not affiliate sites anyways.

For instance, I right clicked on a link just now and did "copy link address" only to get this:
Code:
http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_141756289356210&key=ed49a0cd5f5a12064f9ec21d68286e40&libId=40836c06-f724-4279-bf99-7f667887ff80&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.styleforum.net%2Ft%2F312703%2Freasons-why-new-york-sucks%2F8025%23post_7542786&v=1&out=http%3A%2F%2Fnypost.com%2F2014%2F12%2F01%2Fchef-acccused-of-serving-worst-cuts-to-asians-upper-west-siders%2F&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.styleforum.net%2Ft%2F312703%2Freasons-why-new-york-sucks%2F8010&title=Reasons%20why%20New%20York%20Sucks%20-%20Page%20536&txt=http%3A%2F%2Fnypost.com%2F2014%2F12%2F01%2Fchef-acccused-of-serving-worst-cuts-to-asians-upper-west-siders%2F

Seems like this should only apply to things like Amazon links...and even then, it used to be in-line substitution...not a redirect through some potentially shady site. Makes it hard to see if someone is sending you to Goatse or Lemonparty.
