    Hi, Vincent. No, you won't get a gmail message that someone has replied to your thread. You only get an email if someone has sent you a private message.

    Clickbank has a cloaker. Well, sort of. They call it a hoplink shield but you can still tell it's a Clickbank link. It prevents theft of your link but doesn't disguise it. HopLink Shield

    I don't know that Google will let you shorten a CB link. Google hates affiliate links. You'd probably be better off using Bit.ly or YOURLS (if you have it).

    I used tinyurl to cloak my ugly clickbank link when I promoted clickbank stuff on youtube. It worked great. :)

    Not sure if you figured this out, If you have a domain with wordpress you can use the plug in prettylink to make a cleaner looking link.

    As for it being necessary, its totally up to you,. If you want to present a clean or ugly url to your visitors.
