I'm sure someone will come up with a much more clever name for this that includes the word "Fail." Regardless, it definitely appears that LiveJournal has screwed the pooch yet again.

Links to about 150 e-commerce sites that users post to their LiveJournals are being redirected through a 3rd party website. These redirected links also open in a new window.

Among other things, this redirection strips any existing affiliate links and inserts a different affiliate link

Emphasis in original.  This doesn't affect me personally, but that doesn't matter.  As the saying goes, it's the principle of the thing.  Whether intentional or not, LJ is ripping off any user who posts links with affiliate data in their journals.  I'm about this close to washing my hands of LJ altogether.  Unfortunately, I doubt they'd refund my permanent account fee so I guess I'd just have to write it off.
