    when they dump me, they stay dumped.

    and isn't it cute how (say, in CJ) they can sneak you back in without notice? I wish there was a way of cutting them off from our side after they pull the plug.

    LOL!!!

    Cute!

    Of course, when they dump you, they know you may not have time to get your links down and they will get your sales, anyway, and not have to pay you.

    What a bunch of scumbags!!!

    Is this by any chance one of those nifty CJ merchants?

    Maybe, they have one of those nifty CJ advisers.

    One of CJ's merchants dumped me a few days ago. I thanked them and told them that I was already in the process of removing their links because of their affiliation with major parasites. The AM sent me an email wanting to know what a parasite was? I sent him back an email referring him to the parasite forum here on ABW. Have not heard a word back. All their links have been removed.

    Yeah ... I can't say for sure if I've ever been dumped right before Christams but I've had advertisers "deactivate" (not sure if this ia a dump or what ...) and then reappear in my "get links" section, plus I still get their "newsletters." Once the deactivation process happens and I've removed links, I do not put them back, no matter how good they converted. I just don't know if they are actually still a valid merchant or the ability to create their links through my account is an oversight on the network's part or what.

    I've received emails from some of these merchants, asking to promote them for specific reasons and when I email them back, asking if they are active after a deactivation but never hear back. So I just ignore them.

    There are a few I would love to reincorporate into my site becasue they converted. No clue what to do about those. I haven't yet re-added any merchant that has deactivated for any reason.
    Peace,

    Last year on Dec 16th I lost 60% of my traffic.

    I would call that a major DUMP.

    All is well now however.
