    Hmmm...and not a peep about it in their ABW forum, either. I wonder if they're going to be honest and pay affiliates for sales, or just reverse all of them and log another entry in the Hall of Shame.

    To me, there's something about this program, and the AM who runs it, that's like a red caution flag flying in the wind...

    Could you at least be fair enough to offer a *reason* why you would say this?

    Take it from me; I'm one of the first to point a finger and say a bad word if a program or AM looks or acts 'shady'. (So much so that somebody in chat last night said that all along they thought I was a parrot disguised as a cow, KWIM).

    I have reason (reason, not conjecture) to believe that Brook himself knew nothing at all about this shutdown until March 4th at the earliest.

    For starters, the fact that parasites are allowed to overwrite other affiliate's cookies. I see Ebates is offering an additional 10% off for their customers who are hijacked from other sites.

    This is apparently perfectly OK, too. I think that in and of itself, is a BIG red flag. They don't really care if the affiliate who initiated the sale gets the commission for it.

    I can't imagine why anyone would promote them, knowing they will not get credit for all of their sales.
