    I'll be at DMD (speaking on a panel on the first day), but not in NYC on the weekend before (busy tending to the BBQ out in the NJ suburbs).

    Shawn, maybe you should stick around and do a little reading.

    Maybe Shawn would like to explain this:

    Shawn's promotion of parasites to AMs

    Actually, it's just my wife and kids at the picnic table, but if you'd like to come out, I'd be happy to cook something up for you.

    Andy -

    I visited that thread earlier today and explained that I posted lists of charity, coupon, and rewards sites at the frequent request of affiliate managers.

    Shawn,

    I saw your post. I think I understand what you were attempting to do, however you weren't providing a complete picture.

    Not letting AMs know about parasites and the effect they have on affiliate programs was a bad judgement call on your part. You know as well as I that many affiliates won't join programs with parasites in them.

    If you truly want to help and educate, all sides must be presented so people can make educated decisions on their own. As those pages stood, you were endorsing the very thing you spoke against at the Nov. 7th meeting.

    These lists were just that - they were lists. I agree that people should make educated decisions on their own.

    The lists were agnostic of any opinion - they were just as advertised - lists of super affiliates.

    As an affiliate manager, I do homework before trying to recruit an affiliate, and I would advocate that everybody else do the same.

    Shawn you'll remember I always pushed for the networks to fully disclose diversion tactics used by the merchants in their pre-signup profiles. Think it was a A-G list including allowing incented traffic via BHO's into their programs. In this day and age of TopMoxie selling licenses to anyone with the fee money it's important for AM's who aren't enamored with BHO monitizing all linking methods to their web sites have a list of know BHO players. We uncover a few every month and it sure makes for some embarrassed AM's who post at ABW.
