Is it bad etiquette to include Amazon affiliates tags in links?

It doesn't seem unreasonable to me, but I will certainly not include them if the community frowns on the practice.

At least on the main Stackoverflow site, Amazon links are automatically converted into the Amazon Affiliate links funding Stack Overflow. See this blog post, and this post on meta.SO.

    Is that a yes or a no? – AJ Finch Nov 2 '10 at 14:41

    I presume it's more a case of "It's pointless" as I think the SO engine will munch your Amazon link and replace it with its own Amazon Affiliates link. – Edd Nov 2 '10 at 14:55
  • Fair enough. Thanks, Edd :) – AJ Finch Nov 3 '10 at 15:14
