    AFP Is A Parasite
    Or more specifically, I'm a parasite.

    That according to a blog dedicated just to ME. Yes a whole entire blog just about me!

    Looks like I must be doing something right.

    I'll take a wide stab in the dark and guess an affiliate who had an account terminated for using contextual adware.

    I can't wait for the next installment. I hope they keep 'em coming.

    And just for accurracy...it's Kellie not Kelly. They did spell it right at least once.

    Congratulations!

    BTW, did you mean to give them link juice? If you'd like me to unlink it, just let me know.

    Keep up the good fight. Your vigilance makes the affiliate world a better place.

    WooHoo, Kellie. Now you know you've made the "big time." Controversy is good for business and that person is helping to make you famous.

    I'll go over and begin commenting - but I'll likely get "deleted."

    You would think a bitter person that was busted cheating/stealing would have better things to do with his/her time...but then maybe not

    Bravo Kellie! The efforts you make to clean up the industry are much appreciated. I don’t expect that this comment will ever see the light of day, but at least the blog owner will realize that you are appreciated by many.

    No worries guys if your comments don't get through on the blog. No dobut they'll see the thread here. Yeah...they visit ABW. And yeah, I've already pretty much figured out who the post is from.

    @Bill I laugh all the time. I tend to lean towards the morbid with my humor, so this is right up my alley.

    Kellie,

    Besides picking up software based parasites, does AFP pick up affiliates who are violating search engine policy, or straight up driving fraudulent traffic? Your site is overly vague, and the blog hasn't been updated since 2008 (and has plenty of spam links in comments that you might want to delete ).

    Is AFP compensated in any manner relating to the amount of parasitic traffic caught/removed?

    I've got a hunch that it's somebody who's had a beef with you all along, who has no true personal interest in 4checks at all. *wink*

    I'm not at all surprised to find out that anyone who would cause a major oil spill would also be a parasite. You (Kellie) also caused that mess in the Gulf of Mexico. Right!?!

    Sometimes the de-marketing can cause PR, as a background in Marketing I have learned the cases in which someone does the mistake exactly like the Merchant, and the effect reverse after all... sometimes questioning the big fish can create much hype, that is kind of done here... When Kellie did post the thread, people would visit the blog... and the news is juvenating up. But Kellie is true, there are always roam to take a laugh out of it…

    If the person has enough stamina to talk, he/she could talk here or enable the post comments, but this is not going to be happen because someone don’t want to play a fair game with Affiliate Fair Play

    I've no problem helping them promote their new site.

    I'm not at all surprised to find out that anyone who would cause a major oil spill would also be a parasite. You (Kellie) also caused that mess in the Gulf of Mexico. Right!?!
    I was wondering when I would be recognized for that achievement! Let's not forget my handiwork with the levees during Katrina....

    Is AFP compensated in any manner relating to the amount of parasitic traffic caught/removed?
    You mean like a bounty fee? Nope. There are public comments from me going way back opposing that type of payment structure. It could foster conflicts.

    I have to say that I am a bit disappointed though that someone couldn't muster up enough hate to get a real domain for it. I mean a freebie WP site??? Where's the comittment?

    This is too funny It sure sounds like someone who was caught stealing and wants to blame it on those who caught them. It's a clear sign you're making an impact.

    I have a feeling they're just afraid that they would leave some tracks with a real domain, even hidden behind Domains by Proxy.

    While you're very open about everything you do, those who do evil in our industry like to hide in the shadows.

    It seems that all our comments have been approved and whiner is responding to them in typical troll fashion.

    My favourite so far is "I don't have to reveal my identity. I can do whatever I want."

    Whew -- just finished looking at all the comments. 1 supporter of chachingchaching in the bunch. A member of blackhatworld.com no less 8=)

    Gonna have to unsubscribe from the comments though -- I suspect that this troll is going to be busy.

    Yeah, that was my favorite too. With that attitude, it's no wonder he got on Kellie's radar.
