    Threatening and misleading language in affiliate profile
    Hey whats the deal with this...I was looking in my affiliate profile and at the bottom of the PAYMENT INFORMATION section it says:

    "By clicking Update at the bottom of this Update Profile page, you certify, under penalties of perjury, that the information you have entered in the above fields is correct."

    UNDER PENALTIES PERJURY that's very serious and threatening language. Also you cannot commit perjury unless you are under oath, so what's up with all of the threatening language. It's not like you are testifying in a murder trial, you are only joining an affiliate program.

    The definition of perjury is as follows - The deliberate, willful giving of false, misleading, or incomplete testimony under oath

    Has anyone ever noticed this before?
