Skittish Eclipse
I've been given a heads up that has done some excellent sleuthing and investigation into hijacked LJ affiliate links:

What is LJ doing to my links?
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 2
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 3

Expect this post to be update through the day as I find out more and come up with a good summary.

ETA: No good summary, but I feel like I should say code got taken down, etc etc, business as usual.

Thanks for the report--sorry about the CAPTCHA--I think at one point, we were getting a lot of spam (from logged in accounts, even), so we had to enable reCAPTCHA for nonmembers.

Heh, no problem, I was just like "Why the Captcha! :( Oooh my comment is screened, that'd be it." :)

Yeah, nonmember comments are screened because we can sometimes report on Touchy Topics, and that can bring in a bunch of people from links who don't know how to wave a pitchfork instead of throwing outright stones, or some other appropriate metaphor.
