I just can't believe the way some members here reacted to the email ad/resource from Haiko. Some people are so totally against anyone making money from anything sent to them in an email. How many emails does he send out a year? To those whining, please get a clue.
This is an real example of blatant spam to 2 emails that have been harvested from one of my sites. I got these today, The worst part is that I am already an affiliate of allposters and it just goes to prove even more that they just harvested the 2 emails they sent it to. Sales and Support @ the same domain.

Ayup, burns my ass (can I say that?) to see people complaining about emails and pop ups and such.
It's been a bad year for message boards -- I've watched many long time boards switch to a paid service. Not because they want to make money but because they can't afford to run them anymore.
This is not hard folks. If you don't want the emails, uncheck the box in your profile. Though I haven't seen any pop ups ever here if one were to open up is that such a bad thing? How many of you don't use them at all anywhere. (Ok, I don't, but I'm making a general point here)
It's not really my place to say but my feeling is beyond that, if you don't like it, leave. Regardless of who you are, or who you think you are we are all effectively guests in Haiko's house here.

First, if you have a sports site, please email me.
Second, I totally agree with you. Haiko, if you read this, thanks for the affiliate lead. I look at it this way; If I use this to generate revenue then fine. I'm not sure that I actually need the software my self, but what's the big fuss over him trying to make a few nickles.
Third, I had to laugh at the example you listed:

We have a couple hundred sites altogether, I don't remember a sports site in the lot but I could have easily forgotten.
