Default jbrlsr.com and commission-junction?

Can someone explain what's going on with links on Rennlist?

A link appears like www.ebay.com etc etc, but when you click on it, it doesn't go to the ebay page, it goes first to some huge url at jbrlsr.com then to another huge url at commission-junction.

Getting the feeling I'm being tracked, here...

It's been happening for months to me. On my home computers 2 of the 3, the scripts that jblrlsr.com locks up my broweser for periods of time.

It's Walter R÷hrl.

You guys don't think it's deceptive to show a link going to one place, then sending the click to another place?

Sorry - to answer your question:
It is a plugin for our forum software.
http://www.drivingrevenue.com/
The program was actually written by one of the gentleman that started and built 6speedonline (another Porsche forum community if you are not familiar with it).
The intent of the program is to allow Rennlist to gain a small referral fee for anyone that elects to purchase items from Rennlist (typically on ebay, but also with amazon.com and a couple of online retailers).

I hope that answers your question

The problem with that is that you are using our browsing to sites that are NOT your current sponsors and then we get attacked with ads at the top for the very sites we browsed to. I keep getting ads to an online college (Capella and others). I when to that site and a few others when doing some research for our nanny. I sure as heck don't want that ad everytime I log into Rennlist to be splashed across the top when I have no desire to enroll myself or my nanny there.

Tracking where we browse is not going to go over well. Not good. We should have the ability as users to block that information sharing.

Thats actually something seperate from "jbslr" and also it is actually not something we do, nor is it done by anyone we do business with on Rennlist, its the website you browse (Capella for example), that loads a cookie on your browser.
An example is Google ads will identify that cookie on your computer and target advertisements appropriately. Its called behavioral targeting.
You can get around this by deleting your cookies each time you close your browser.

Again, I don't know why you are seeing that, as it is not something we do on Rennlist, nor is it something that is done by the partners we work with in advertising on Rennlist (we specifically ask them not to do behavioral targeting).
It is potentially a sheer coincidence, but we will also speak to our partners to re clarify they are indeed not doing behavioral targeting (they shouldn't be, they don't have the capability too!).
However, you can prevent this from occurring on any website by regularly deleting your cookies, which gives you, the user, the ability to block that information sharing.

On a personal level, I encounter a similar issue on non Internet Brands sites, I just purchased a new Lenovo laptop, and every non Internet Brands site I go to now shows me an ad for Lenovo's laptop range.


I hope that helps

Just want to clarify, I am not stating you are not seeing the ad, but you shouldn't be seeing the advertising based on anyone knowing your browsing history thats all.

Try deleting your cookies and see if it goes away.
