    Cool A FREE T-Shirt from Shawn Collins.
    I received a parcel the other day and in it was a T-Shirt and this short letter from Shawn Collins.


    Gordon

    While I most assuredly do not agree with your characterisation of me on message boards, I respect that you do so under your own name and not a pseudonym.

    Here's a T-Shirt you can wear to tell the world you are an affiliate, or you can use it to clean the toilet if you prefer.

    take care
    Shawn
    The letter was written on a piece of paper from a notepad with www.linkshare.com printed on it. Seems he also gets his notepaper for free as well.

    The T-Shirt is white with "It's an affiliate thing You wouldn't understand" in blue text on the back with "Check out shawnsblog.com" and a small hand in blue on the front left hand side where a pocket would be.

    I dont know if it is a blatent attempt at bribery, I suspect not but I can assure everybody a T-Shirt will not change my thoughts about Shawn or any one of his cronies that I already think badly of.

    I cannot wear it as I am afraid it might be bugged to send any private info about me to his big buddy that sells the top 200 of his customers private affiliate info for monetary gain.

    I can only asume he either got my snail mail address from Linkshare or maybe he did a whois search for one of my sites.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    .... or you can use it to clean the toilet if you prefer
    I can only assume that some have for him to go that far!

    It's an affiliate thing You wouldn't understand
    Ahhh Shawn, the sad thing is that it is indeed an affiliate thing and you obviously don't understand ... so your shirts are right on target.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Good one. Why don't you get your pet to wear it, if you have one, so you can screw their list with 'wrong' information.

    Once you put the shirt on - it will decide if you can take it off or not...

    Try this:
    Put it on and go to a store where you normally shop. Place something in your shopping cart that one of his many BHO riddled merchant clients sells. You might find yourself being redirected to another store completely against your will to make the purchase.

    A free dinner and letting somebody take pics will do wonders.

    lox-L-y... please get it right

    Somebody has to stick up for the underdog... or be the one that doesn't just follow the group mentality.... keep the fires buring....

    I happen to like both Shawn and Haiko, and most of the other people on this wonderful forum. Heck, after the radio show and the post show chat, I even like Mike now!!!!

    Not really. I tend to ignore people who try to dismiss everyone else by pretending that they're the only adults in the room.

    Yer so cute Trust. Takes more than a free dinner to bribe me, AND I am a pro photog and have been for 30 years, so no one LET me take pics.... I worked hard, as did another ABWer.

    Maybe he read about you being a clothes pimp Gordon? Or felt you needed a Collins shirt to go with your pware shirt to balance out your wardrobe? The note that came with the shirt certainly is strange.

    maybe he is just letting you know,
    he knows where you live,

    or maybe he wants you to stop slagging him off.
    and thought he could buy you with a cheap shirt.

    maybe its an invite over to the darkside

    Gordon,

    Based on Shawn's history, I'd have to say it was a mistake that the shirt was sent to you...he simply didn't know about it until it was too late...that note was written without his permission...
