    I have noticed that alot of merchants have a way of when a person signs up for there site , that person info is sent to another site.
    so for example.

    I go to thisponsor.com and sign up for there free newsletter. After I hit the send buttom I somehow have just signed up for thisposors.com newsletter but I have also signed up for some other newsletter that that thisponsor.com is ganna get the bounty for. So it's like signing up for 5 newsletters at one time but you really only signed up for 1.

    If anybody out there understands me please help.

    How is this done.

    thanks

    You want to be able to do this?

    This seems worse than spam. At least I only need to delete spam - with this trickery I have to track down the five other newletters THAT I DID NOT AGREE TO SIGN UP FOR and unsubscribe or now block...

    Sounds like a quick way to piss off a lot of people.

    Just my $.02

    You are missunderstanding me

    I am not trying to add people to things they do not want to be added to. What I'm looking to do is have the form and have like 6 other programs and give the user the option of signing up for it.

    Well any help on this would be great.

    thanks

    There are sites like http://www.focalex.com/ and others that will provide you with this sort of multiple checkbox newsletter sign up. Best bet is to go to refer-it.com and look at the programs under advertising/email/marketing

    Also, just a heads up, you have the word "busy" spelled wrong on your home page graphic.

    Apologies...

    (...too many bad experiences with pages that do sign you up for newsletters that you didn't want....)
