nothing more than a crass attempt to get a few bucks December 16, 2001 4:06 PM Subscribe
Why do people persist in doing this? tsarfan posts a link to an Amazon page showing that they're selling sex toys, ostensibly to incite commentary on what Amazon and other e-commerce outlets will/need to do to become profitable. In reality, however, it seems to be nothing more than a crass attempt to get a few bucks from MeFi's significant readership by making the link include his Amazon referrer code. In the words of the immortal Michael Stipe, "I call bullshit on that."
