Just noticed that I have a lot "spam-like" bookmarks in my Opera, just like

"16000 games" or "Best booking service"

Most links are*

also there are some links with "partnerid"-like parameter (referral system) with link not via redir.opera e.g ""

I think that they are builtin into the opera.

How can I disable them and prevent opera from recreating them in case of update?

They even says nothing about spam bookmarks in EULA – osgx Jun 7 '11 at 13:33
That's one of the ways Opera makes money. They are not "spam", but affiliate links that those companies paid Opera to add to fresh profiles. – user33758 Nov 2 '11 at 2:57

Once you delete them, they won't come back.

The only way they'll "return" is by starting Opera up with a new profile (e.g. after you've deleted/renamed your current profile, or when installing a beta version).

Can I disable creating such spam even in new profiles? – osgx Jun 11 '11 at 15:25
