    To the Affiliates Program Manager @ Priceline.com

    My name is Gordon Skevy, I am the owner/webmaster of YouTrek.com a travel site. Today I was informed that your company is using my site (unauthorised by me) to promote your site and its offers using a system by which popups apear and make it look like it is part of my site, in effect you are stealing my visitors and potential income in a dirty underhand way.
    As from today 24th Dec 2001 if you persist in having these popups apear on my site or do not inform me that you do not wish to advertise, I shall have no other recurse than to invoice you as I would any other advertiser.
    The fees are $25.00 per day or $700.00 per month in advance. Please let me know your preference and enclose payment.
    Regards
    Gordon Skevy

    I think it means there is a SNAFU on their mail server. It is entirely possible that the message went through, but their backup/archive system is hosed and couldn't create the backup/archive file.

    But this is mostly a guess relying on vague memories from a similar problem when I worked in an office.

    Priceline *might* actually do something if two or three hundred other affiliates copied and pasted that letter and sent it as well. Great letter - I hope it gets someones attention!

    What have I missed here? How are they putting pop-ups on your page? I have them as a sponsor so I need to know if the code I put on my page for them is doing something I don't want it to do.

    If they sell something from the pop-up do you get credit for it?

    Priceline is a Linkshare merchant and I thought LS took a stand on these Adwarez plugin superaffiliates. Send Shatner to the MOON.

    Haiko, ref the screenshot you posted - all those icons in the taskbar, do you really run that much stuff at once?
