Do a quick search for ebates
. You should find that out of 46,000 results, a huge
number of these are the sites of our fellow affiliates promoting ebates.
How many of these affiliates know that they're supporting they're supporting their own destruction? My guess is none. We all know that it's the affiliates that loose with scumware, yet still thousands of us continue to support ebates purely out of ignorance.
We've tried talking to the Merchants, many won't listen. So why don't we go down the list of affiliate sites supporting ebates and let them know what they're getting themselves into? A simple cut and paste email educating affiliates and getting the links off their sites would go a long way in fighting parasiteware.
What do you think? I know that some emailing has already been going on, but I find it ridiculous that this many people are still promoting an affiliate that steals their commissions.
