I'm finding slickdeals to be unusable! The problem is there is sooo much tracking going on that if one of the intermediate sites doesn't have a proper cert, and many don't, then the browser responds appropriately as shown below.

I'm sure others are seeing the problem as well. I'm at the point that I'm not going to use slickdeal anymore!
  • Why is there so much tracking on slickdeals? I understand you need to get paid but the balance has been tipped.
  • Why is the handoff from slickdeals to the target site so complex?
  • Who are all these sites slickdeals uses that don't have proper certs?
