I contacted CJ when I found that they are STILL allowing 180Solutions and, get this, WHENU(!) to run their affiliate programs through CJ. Here is my letter to them:

Hello!

I am wondering why CJ continues to host known parasiteware users such as 180Solutions.com and WhenU.com? These companies encourage their users to download software that will intercept the commissions of purchases the user makes at other sites.

CJ's own policies forbid websites from using this technology yet many of these sites are still participating in your services. Most notably WhenU.com, one of the most prolific parasiteware users on the internet.

Please explain.



Here is their response:

Hi, Commission Junction has reviewed the companies you mentioned and have found them to be in compliance with their contract and Commission Junction standards and guidelines. If there are any other questions I can answer for you please let me know.

Regards,
ARK
