    Interesting insight into the affiliate underworld...

    http://www.msnbc.com/news/940490.asp?0si=-

    There wouldn’t be spam if there wasn’t money in spam. So to understand what primes the spam economy, MSNBC.com answered a single unsolicited commercial e-mail. Following this one spam trail led us from Alabama to Argentina, from a tiny Birmingham-based firm and someone named “Erp” past a notorious spammer named Super-Zonda — and right through big-name companies like Ameriquest, Quicken, and LoanWeb. And that’s just the beginning. The truth about spam is this: While the dirty work is done by secretive, faceless computer jockeys who are constantly evading authorities, lots of companies with names you know profit, at least tangentially, from their efforts..............

    Mike:
    That is a tremendous article and a good reminder that many of us are NOT typical users. While most all ABWers would rant and rave about the evils of spam, popups, popunders, etc., the truth of the matter is that many Internet users are obviously utilizing them. There is a reason people engage in SPAM, it makes money. Of course, as I have often said, once you sell your soul to the devil, you can accomplish most anything.

    Regarding people who actually open those emails, and click on the links, AND perform an action...

    I never, AND I MEAN NEVER open up emails from people I do not know, and especially from spammers. If I register for something, then yeah, I usually open that email from a trusted source. But... humph... when you open up an email from a spam company there is no telling what you are subjecting your machine to, and that's without opening attached files! Sheeeeet... I don't download and install hardly any application. Well, not the crap Billy Joe Six Pack web surfer installs. Dayum. anyhow. I think it is unwise to even open up the emails, much less visit the sites and purchase, especially from sites I know I didnt register with.

    I can't believe the things people subject their machines, and personal info too. I've got friends who got all sorts of shit on their systems tray. me, I got two icons there. Sorry, off topic a bit. One thing led to another, and I just, well.. you know me.

    Exactly. That's how you and I handle stuff like that, but this article clearly shows we are not necessarily the typical Internet user. Good choice of quotes; Mr. Barnum was correct.

    Good to know but I haven't gotten any offers.

    I used an online registration for a product I bought (not any merchant here or with an affiliate program) and within a day I got spam to that unique address - I went back to their site, read their privacy policy that stated emphatically that they'd not use the consumers information at all except for necessary communications between them and the consumer. I then wrote them back, quoted that policy and demanded they buy my address back from whomever they sold it to in accordance with that privacy policy. They never responded, but I've never gotten another email to that address.

    Maybe you're not advertising in the right places.

    No, I don't find it familiar.

    I take deactivations seriously, for that can happen to any one of us, no matter how clean you perceive your practices are.

    And I do not assume right away what he did right or wrong. However, it is to everyone's advantage to know what it, so that we may learn from the mistake.
