I cloak the affiliate links by redirecting them through sub-folders on my site.
Under the HTML view, for some reason, the article script strips "http://thebitbot(dot)com" out of the link.
For example, "http://thebitbot(dot)com/articles/go/getresponse/" get stripped down to "/articles/go/getresponse/" rendering it useless for syndication.
Any idea how can I fix this? Is there some PHP function causing this to happen?
