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.

Um... well, besides the fact that I am a paid user (twice, although from LJ's perspective that may as well be two separate people) and therefore there should not be anything on my journal which, if clicked, would give a kickback to LJ (this functions like a banner ad in that respect)... while I understand that I gave them permission to display/use my content, I don't see that I gave them permission to change any of it without my knowledge or consent.
