Affiliate Links

I am a very long time user and just saw that there are sometimes Affiliate Links for the shortcuts.

I guess I know why they are there but as I am using an AdBlocker some shortcuts do not work anymore.

I just want to ask why the decision was made to integrate the affiliate links? And why there was no communication regarding the addition?

Thanks Lutz

I am curious, though: Which shortcuts stopped working?

Cheers, Georg

I forgot: You are of cause always free to override affiliate shortcuts in your own namespace with the same keywords and their direct URLs.
