    Anyone have any update on 180solutions? Their download is a search engine companion but are they still overwriting affiliate links?

    If i am not wrong, 180solutions is like Gator, they pop up advertising on keyword search by their user. Keep away...

    I just declined them for the second time. They keep re-applying.

    I have gotten at least 4 applications from them over the past 3 months. They are persistent but we still choose not to work with them.

    They have been in my program for 2 weeks - after reading what you guys have stated, I disabled them.

    I don't want to take any chances - I don't need illegitimate volume.

    I'm in the process now of dropping them.
    1) downloadable application. As for parasitic risk... looks like a fish, wiggles like a fish.

    2) They're driving down my posted EPC. A lot of @#$% traffic.

    I dropped them back in February when they sent 10,000 clicks and one sale. It was the lowest EPC ever - 13 cents.

    Drop them before they kill your EPC.

    Nice to see the merchants conversing over a very shady affiliate operation. At some point the rest will wake up that incented worthless traffic and those pushing the 1990's Eyeball traffic maddness should have been buried in Y2000.

    Smells like a skunk and eats hen house chickens like a fox. I turned down 4 apps to them too for the Holdup Suspenders Program.

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..
