    Thumbs down Need a permanent Decline on channels
    Hate to say this, but we need a permanent decline for some of "these merchants" that continually keep offering their so called special invites just like they have for us publishers in their interface.
    This is getting entirely out of had with some of these merchants.
    Day after day, after day.....

    I've stopped checking LS mail for this very reason as I'm sure many other affiliates have. I believe that LS charges merchants for each email that they send so they have no incentive to put a stop to the SPAM. The unfortunate thing is that non-spamming merchants are also paying to send their messages that will never be read by many affiliates.

    The "Private Offer" SPAM has stopped. Since they removed the "ghost" offers.

    HOWEVER,

    Solicitations have INCREASED via INTERNAL email - a LOT.

    Wouldn't be so bad if they were even vaguely related to the channel - these lazy spammers aren't even bothering to read the channel descriptions or visit the website. They are SO unrelated it's not even funny...

    More spam from Cheopoair.co.uk - not even close to being relevant.

    Throw in focalprice.com - wouldn't join them if they were the last merchant on the planet...

    Add Mental Floss to the spammer list:



    Again, wasn't anything "Private" about the offer. Standard commish/terms. Declined. Then two more times they sent an "offer"...
