    For the past six months, just the day before you announce on your site that you are going to have downtime I begin to see a literal "EXPLOSION" of sales and commisions. Most of these sales are high dollar and this happens everytime approximately 24 hours before the downtime actually occurs. Is this because the parasites/BHO/morons also "GO DOWN" and retool so they they can better steal our commissions? Or is this also their way of thanking us for putting money in their pockets everyday? Its kind of like "Hell throw these guys a bone, we steal their commissions 350 out of 365 days a year anyway". Comments?

    Don't forget the sales from merchants who you never get sales from at any other time. And sales from low-traffic sites that never generate sales at any other time.

    It's kinda like a "full-moon high tide thang".

    LOL, complain when you *don't* get commissions, complain when you *do* get commissions, I so love this place.

    I'll take a flurry of activity anyday... but I'm not complaining, I am having my best CJ month ever, nice across the board mix of merchants too. Gotta go load a couple more feeds....

    32 commission checks in a row makes me a believer, just need to find the right merchant that clicks with you. What works for one of us won't for the next, just keep looking!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    My imagination is working double overtime as well. Made more at CJ in the last couple of days than the rest of the month combined. Maybe this time will be different. Conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen but that doesn't make them false.

    http://abw.infopop.cc/eve/ubb.x?a=tp...703#4736066703

    This week i was wondering what was happening with a merchant i was getting a few sales every week with and noticed nothing in the last month and a half. Got 3 sales with them today. Who knows

    Maybe the loopholes for parasites to make money is broken, so we make money. CJ goes down to fix that loophole so when the system goes up again, things are back to normal, so sales go down.

    How's that for a new theory?

    False alarm. The merchants in question just reversed all of the sales that I spoke of earlier. My bad.

    I dont know you, but your post makes you sound like you are the RUsh Limbaugh of affiliate marketing. I am fully expecting the "dittoheads" to chime in soon as well.

    I don't know about anyone else, but since sometime after 8 last night we have not had any sales through this AM yet and had only a 1/4 of normal Monday sales.

    Why are sales being delayed and does this have to do with the upgrade?

    re: pyramid

    along with the conspiracy theorists, the folks watching over their shoulders for black helicopters, and others who build a religion out of what they hear, pyramids became important to some a while back.

    there is even an album out by The Alan Parsons Project called Pyramid. It mentions some of the assumed mystical/magical uses for one.

    anyway, a pyramidical shape supposedly concentrates some form of energy downward through its form and it has the power to multiply wealth or even sharpen a razor.

    but I think there should be a caution there: if the concentration goes from the tip down through the center, I would rather not rest one on my lap, inverted.

    Ouch, that kinda hurts. No reason to insult me. Just expressing a different view, that CJ produces consistently for me. I'm not the big dog at CJ by any means, nor am I CJ's apologist, but I make money every day from them.

    I don't believe that, miraculously, sales get made one day before the site goes down every time. I just don't see that in my reports. Now, if you still want to insult me, let's talk politics, lol.

    Thanks for the explanation. I put a pyramid under the bed at night. The wife doesnt seem to mind.
