Why is there a referral code on the Amazon link in that post?

In early 2006 Matt changed the way that Amazon links are handled. The MetaFilter associates ID is added to all Amazon links and any other referral codes are stripped out. This means when someone buys a thing from Amazon thru a link from here, MetaFilter gets a small amount of money, which helps to fund the site, paying for the servers and moderation staff. If you want to help the site but don't want to use Amazon, here's a list of other ways to help fund Mefi.
