encrypt link - encrypts the code to help fight against ad blockers, doing so tho makes the pages and ads load a little slower. Don't think you can do anything about that if you encrypt the link.
many cookie hijacking programs can overwrite your cookie and replace it with their own. however, if you encrypt your link it's harder for the scumware to overwrite your cookie.
