    I got rudely terminated also, this after pushing a content piece on their latest gaming PC which was getting a lot of visibility.

    A little warning would have been nicer instead of a "Bang...you're terminated".

    i got terminated too!

    I swear not to be affiliated with this company ever again!

    whoever is in charge of the "cleaning" should be terminated.

    Bad AM!

    Lol, I got terminated in March. I was not active with them, though, so could care less. In fact, I sent a reply that read, "Yea! I love rejection!"


    J.C. Whitney just sent me one the other day that ticked me off. I used to send them 30k-50k clcikthroughs a year, until they left for the dark side. You would think they would try inquiring, something like, "Hey, I notice traffic dried up from you, what happened?"

    Instead, I get a, "You need to make $100 in sales by 4/30 or you are out."

    LMAO.

    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Idiot advertisers... We can wish them a quick demise of any growth prospects they had for their programs, though

    Past history on this type treat is the company pulls their program 30 days after the deadline date. Remember Martha Steward Omnicron? The Outpost and a bunch of other Linkshare deadpool merchants all sent something similar as a sell my stuff or your out...

    Backcountry sent me a similar email which basically said they wanted to boot me for low traffic, and that I'd have to email them about it within two weeks, Or Else. Reading between the lines, it's almost like they want me to beg/kiss up in order to stay in!

    "Else" is seeming like a preferable choice at this point. Backcountry used to be one of my best merchants, but their sales have deteriorated with each AM change...and they've had several. At this point, it's no loss to choose "Else."

    Since their own AMs also regularly choose "Else" for themselves (ie, they keep quitting), I can just wait for their revolving door to revolve yet again, and reapply at that time if I get re-interested
