    Now I'm REALLY Pissed!!!
    Logged on to Linkshare today and guess what????
    We have been unable to verify one or more pieces of your LinkShare registration information.
    Now, I did my registration thingy two weeks ago. Why now, AFTER the first batch of checks have been done (May 9...per Mr. Messer) is this showing up???

    And how the hell do I figure out what is wrong???

    This is the worst run operation I have ever dealt with as an affiliate marketer.

    ATTENTION, All my LS Merchants: I'm not putting up with this any more. Either you all have to put the heat on LS to fix things quickly AND for them to begin to communicate with us or I'm leaving. If I can't run my business I can't make money and LS is not helping me in any sort of way.

    Yes!!!! Unbelievable.

    I logged into LS, went to My Account to check, just like I have the last few days (after hearing all the horror stories here) and first thing on the screen is this ERROR message about not being able to verify me.

    What a bunch of crap!

    Sorry, I am beyond angry now. I'm off to write my merchants and the NY BBB. Worst part is I'm heading out of town in a few hours and will be away from my computer for three days.

    I think the thing that annoyed me the most is that unless I missed it, I did NOT receive an email to notify me of the problem!

    Exactly! I registered two weeks ago and would not have seen this error message had I not been checking each day (because I don't trust their system).

    I assumed everything was correct and with no notification, I had nothing further to do.

    Just another example of the extremely poor communication by this Network.

    I walked into the LinkShare offices today.. really pissed..
    I asked the lady at the front desk where the Network Administrator's office was.. she pointed me in the right direction.. I was really mad so I went to the bathroom first - just to splash some water on my face and calm down a bit before I went to see this person regarding this issue..

    As I went into the bathroom I was shocked at what I saw..
    IT WAS THE NETWORK ADMINISTRATOR..
    the one responisible for this whole thing..

    How Did I know it was him at first sight..??

    I took his picture you tell me how I knew..!

    Same thing here. When LS kicked out 180, I went as far as to send Messer a PM saying that as one of his outspoken critics I now had a new view of the LS program. I got a very nice response from him.
    Since I have provided them with everything they need, and since I make only 2% or less of my income on the LS program, it is official....I am DONE with LS. I will pick up this additional income with indie programs.
    If you can't process the information I have given you, and I have given you everything you need, that is your bad and I will not spend more time wondering what else you want to know about me.
    I have a few sites to switch out next week. I am down to only a few merchants with LS anyway so it won't be difficult.

    I think this might be included in the CJ potential employees interview,.....
    they must be able to do it or they don't get the job.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.
