Ask Jeeves Gets in More Trouble with MySearch

The bad press doesn't stop for Ask Jeeves and this MySearch toolbar. If you run a PC and use IE, you most likely found this MySearch Toolbar installed on it without knowing you installed it. Does that tick you off? I bet it does. A recent article over at MSNBC says "Ask Jeeves didn't ask before installing a search tool on millions of Web browsers. Now investors are asking questions." They use Ben Edelman, who was instrumental in the WhenU Cloaking case (sorry those comments were lost in a server crash). Danny Sullivan puts everything into perspective in his blog entry More Questions On Adware & Search Ad Distribution.

There is forum discussion on this topic at WebmasterWorld & Search Engine Watch Forums.
