    Why Merchants Are Moving But Not Talking
    I just received some information about CJís rules regarding advertisers moving to other networks and recruiting publishers. They allow advertisers to be on multiple networks or have in-house programs, but there are financial penalties if they are found to encourage or solicit publishers to move (for about six months). It appears we, publishers/affiliates, are free to up and move, but we need to be careful regarding any communication with those advertisers prior to that move so we donít get them in any trouble.

    So, if you are hearing very little during this time from advertisers/merchants, know they have good reason. Iím guessing in about six months, right after the holidays, we will be getting a flood of emails from our CJ advertisers that moved in July.

    That is why everyone needs to keep actively adding to this list!

    Sure, you can keep the information to yourself and, perhaps, have a short term advantage. But, it won't last long enough to make it worth not getting similar information from others, yourself. Someone is going to tell about that baby you are trying to hide pretty soon, anyway. So, you might just as well spill what you know.

    This is one thing the community really needs to draw together on and help the merchants get the word out.

    If you know one, cough it up. Don't hoard it while still expecting to take advantage of information from people more forthcoming than you are. Nice people don't do that.

    Ahhhh, I just put two and two together. Michelle is the one that started that thread you listed and guess who was one of the first affiliates threatend by CJ? Yep, Michelle.

    Coincidence? Not likely. CJ is watching the exodus and I think they are getting a tad bit nervous about it.

    Oh my Goddess! Good spot.

    YEP! Add to the the thread, forlks, if for no other reason than to help be sure that Michelle and anyone else abused or threatened has a soft landing with plenty of merchants to choose from!

    Name those merchants. Give them up!

    I think it is interesting you are the only one reporting a "threatening letter". Just too much coincidence.
