uhhhhh we need to inform them of their mistake pronto?

Webhelper should baffle them with his research! or just link them to this site so they can see how they're being deceived...

I'll drop them an e-mail when I get home.

It's a bit like the time PCworld had a article about detecting and blocking tracking cookies and webbugs and their pages were full of them ... Twisted Evil

I wouldnt expect too much from them when money is involved , they are blocked in my HOSTS file for my own safety.
