Comments: An open letter to ThinkGeek

Hi Jonah,

I'm sorry to hear about the comment spam, but I can assure you that it did NOT come from ThinkGeek. It turns out that it's one of our affiliates, and they are clearly in violation of their terms and conditions as an affiliate of ours, so I will be terminating their affiliate relationship immediately.

The URL that the tinyurl resolves to first goes to this affiliate link:

...and then redirects to us which is how many smarmy affiliates hide their links.

I'm disappointed that somebody has chosen to harm our reputation by doing this, but I'm really glad you brought it to our attention. If you have any questions or if you ever notice any other comment spam, please feel free to email me directly.
