    Mass-Deactivation ?
    Today I got 2 mails that I am deactivated for programs where I had a couple of sales this month.

    One email even mentioned 'inactivity' and I had over 10 sales...

    What's goping on ?
    Am I the only one beiing kicked out or is this wide spread ?

    I would email them back and ask, don't think it's widespread. There are some merchants dropping NY affiliates but I don't think that applies to you so it's something else.

    I'm not even based in the US, but interestingly enough I got yet another deactivation quoting the NY problem as reason.

    I mailed all of them back, but no answer so far. My guess is somebody screw up the database query for "NY or not" and overseas publishers get kicked out right along.

    Keep after the AM's until you get an answer, what do you have to lose? People need to be help accountable. Weak willed AM's are no benefit to the industry!

    For real? They're deactivating sites that are based out of NY? I know they passed that new law, but seriously, can NY track sales back to an affiliate?

    If I lived in NY, I think I'd be driving over to NJ and renting a po box.

    that would be a 350 mile drive for me (via the Thruway). NY is a big state. (we're not all in NYC)

    thanx, but no . . . PA is an hour away and OH is about 2.5.

    my point was that people hear NY but it becomes NYC in their minds. There's an awful lot of area up here that isn't NYC.
