This is finally something new, and I retract my assertion that the new

indirect with 'example.com', etc) and
http://www.payne.org/index.php/Frontier_Search_Hijacking (with actual

I noticed that the payne.org link calls out the insertion of an Amazon
affiliate code. Section 7 of the Amazon affiliate agreement
(https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement) appears to
explicitly prohibit payment for this type of traffic.

interesting, one wonders if maybe amazon will 'do the right thing'
(much like they did with wikileaks?) and remove the account's access.
