So the OP asked about recent experiences. Alex, your experience was "many years ago" and it's not clear from your post if it was the kind of theft the OP asked about--which I took to be link hijacking, not non-payment by merchants or other problems. And RhinoFish, that's an interesting case but involved activity prior to 2007.
Anyone actually have bad experiences with link hijacking or cookie stuffing in the past couple of years?
