FindForward Button Using Amazon (Poll)

As mentioned before, I recently added functionality to the FindForward Backlinks alert button which would make it display itself as Amazon DVD link reading “Top Movies” half of the time. After 100 users included the button, I felt it was time to make a decision between trying to cover my additional server costs this way, or discontinuing the service (as you may know, every time the button is displayed anywhere, it triggers some database calculations on my server, and my server is already running on its limit). I’m still unsure how to continue, and if you have feedback to offer please take part in the poll.
