....other affiliate related boards about working together against scumware? Offhand, I can think that http://www.siteownersforums.com might be a good place to mention it. There are surely more. I just think that you might have even MORE influence in your campaign against scumware if you could speak for a 'coalition of affiliate boards'.....
and by that I mean, I think you should formalize a relationship with other, quality boards.
