I feel a lot of people have missed an important point - we choose how much to bid for these clicks. Take out all the partner sites and there is less business and it will cost us more to get it. Result: less profit at the end of the day.
Maybe in some markets, but many of us want to totally exclude sites that are very low quality if not fraudulent. There isn't "less business", because there was no real business coming through from those affiliates, just useless clicks. I'm willing to pay twice per click what I am now paying for yahoo.com clicks, but not if I have to subsidize their dodgy affiliates.
