    Linkshare Email Spamming
    Okay, I've had enough. A merchant at LS, InstantCert.com, is spamming my LS email inbox with a couple of emails a day. I've written them instructing them to stop and they persist. Just what does a merchant expect to gain by doing this to us. Do they really think if they hound us with emails every day that we will join them and start promoting them.

    NO!

    Hmmmm, guess I'm the only one getting spammed by this company.

    Well, time to email LS and tell them to stop letting companies do this.

    You are probably right. I was with LS for years before I even realized they had an internal mail system.

    I've been getting one to two a day since 12-08-05. I simply delete them unread.

    There are a LOT of meathead merchants there spamming everyday. None listen either. It wouldn't be bad if it was one email once or twice a week, but the s***bags send 4 to 8 at a time every day of the week. I've helped them understand a little bit though . . . I reply to every one of them . . . if they send me 8 I send them 16~! See how they like me then . . .

    BWC,

    Thanks for the idea. Since this guy is not getting the hint and I specifically asked him to stop sending them to me I'm going to start sending them all back to him until he gets the message.

    My cousin, who used to be in the trash pickup biz, had a slogan:

    "Satisfaction guaranteed or double your trash back"

    All,
    I have notified the merchant that affiliates have been receiving multiple messages.

    Thanks Ranae!

    I mean, he obviously knew he was doing it. He was sending a different message ever time trying to get folks to promote his program or products.

    I emailed him several days ago myself but never heard from him. I appreciate that you also sent him notice (regardless of the outcome).

    BTW, you make a nice sub for Kelli when she is gone...you are doing a great job! Thanks again!

    Maybe you could mass-blast ALL merchants telling them ALL not to mass-blast affiliates?
