    GUNBROKER ISSUE

    I just wanted to let all of you know that when you go to GunBroker and you logon to that sight it transfers malicious tracking downloads to your computer....I have tracked this and have notified them. Typically this is through their sponsors ads on their site. This is just the place that you would not want tracking downloads to your computer. Yes you have my permission to post on any other sites you use. It consistently downloads immediately 9 tracking ID's....play on it more and I have seen up to 67.

    For those who don't know, how do you know where are these tracking IDs located, and what do they look like so that we can delete them?

    Does this only happen when you sign in, or does it happen every time you visit the site without signing in?

    As soon as you log onto the site...bam it downloads to your desktop. Did it this morning. Get SuperAntispyware free addition load to ur desktop and then see wtf happens when you login to gunf***ker. I have notified them. It their advertisers downloading (them too) tracking software....just where you should be safe they then have every freaking place you download to on ur desktop. They have donw nothing to clear this, one test on their end and they'd get it. But I guess its all about $$$$$$$.

    This is their reply:http://www.gunbroker.com/c/user/privacypolicy/

    Every single one of you should read this completely...this company is tracking every single thing you do on their site and this information is then shared with who knows...and hell your paying them for it!!!

    But just remember you click on this link and 11 Tracking cookies are downloaded to your desktop without you having the slightest idea.

    This does not happen on GunsAmerica...just tested it.....good grief!

    While many sites download traking cookies, by deleting cookies you should be safe then?

    There's other issues with Gunbroker, like how does the seller know,

    TO THE DOLLAR, IN ADVANCE, what your max is, on "Auto-Bid"? That's

    an afternoon of my life I'd like back, please. Not to mention the $$...

    It is not only gun broker that knows your stuff.
    I signed up at primary arms the other day and they told me my phone number.
    The one I have never given to anyone. The nsa is strong.
    While no one ever listens to me,
    I am constantly being told to be quiet.
