Okay, let's be real here. The Web is full of malicious ****. People who care about maintaining the integrity of their system and/or personal information are running some kind of blocker in their browser. (Personally I use uMatrix alongside NoScript -- the former for fine-grained blocking; the latter for cross-site scripting protection.)
However! In many cases this breaks your affiliate/commission links to the vendor sites. For example, uMatrix ships with a default blacklist that includes anrdoezrs.net, through which you (currently) bounce links to Newegg.
I want you guys get the clicks and the buck$, but I don't want to compromise browser security by doing so (i.e "turn off uMatrix" isn't really a realistic solution). Sadly, uMatrix can't whitelist domains based on the referrer (i.e. always block snoopydrawers.com unless I clicked on a link from myfriend.org to get there). Is there a way to employ some sort of "manual override" or after-the-fact jiggery-pokery to ensure you get the commission?
