    Hello All,

    Since I've just started promoting a stable of CJ merchants, I've begun noticing a "CJNetworkQuality" bot in my server logs.

    Since I know it's not indexing a site per se, what exactly is this bot looking/checking for?

    I think it's checking the quality of your site. If it for instance finds illegal content on a page where you have a CJ link , it will be reported. I'm not 100% sure about this though

    So why didn't the Grand CJ Spider catch what this other guy was doing? It took a couple of affiliates to catch the theft of our sales.

    Very good question

    The Network Quality Spider is not designed to detect or monitor for this type of behavior. We use different tools to detect this type of behavior.

    When we detect a potential issue with a publisher it may take several days or weeks before we have thoroughly investigated and documented the offense or problems and then take action. Sometimes during this investigation period, other publishers report the same issue(S). It is good that others are keeping an eye on things - we appreciate your input.

    So, run this past me one more time since I am a little slower than most here.

    What, exactly, kind of behavior IS it designed to detect or monitor?

    Please, use small words so I will understand.

    Too bad this abusive spider can't audit sleezy merchants for chargeback fraud.

    Once CJ has weeded out all the bad affiliates so they can attract good merchants all the good affiliates will have already left because they're tired of not being heard and they're tired of chargeback abuses. CJ will have lots of branding merchants but no affiliates.

    As much as I enjoy reading your posts please do not post any more crap like this and expect us to believe it. I know, you know, CJ knows about the parasites cheating and unethical ways of doing business and we are still waiting for you to bloody do something about them. Give up preaching crap like this and try telling the truth for once. You are only concerned with the smaller affiliates. Whenu, Ebates and the rest of the parasites have cart bloody blanche to do what the hell they want and you don't give a toss for us little guys.

    Gordon, I am sorry you feel this way. We are very active monitoring and correcting any behavior that is out of compliance with our PSA or the COC. I don't want this to turn into back and forth debate but we do take these issues very seriously and are committed to monitoring and enforcing the PSA and COC.

    This guy was infringing upon Merchant Trademarks with the domains he owns and the spider doesn't pick that up?
