I don't see what's difficult about understanding people's complaint about viglink. I think there are two main problems with using viglink: 1. lack of disclosure and 2. endorsement. When viglink is inserted into someone's trip report without them knowing, there is an assumption to readers that the OP endorses the products (which is not true). Secondly, I thought any website using viglink is subject to disclosure about its use:
https://www.viglink.com/legal/disclo...or-publishers/
https://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/fi...mentguides.pdf
This is really interesting! I've never seen the VigLink "badge" anywhere on CT. Could the admin comment on why they're not disclosing this to anyone seeing these links?
