    Linkshare Wants me To Join ShopAtHome
    Just got an email from a Joe Mifsud/LinkShare Corporation – Distribution Specialist

    Dear B,


    I noticed that you currently do not work with ShopAtHome. There are over 700 opportunities for you to earn commission with little effort...
    Little effort? Guess the toolbar does all the work for me

    Some benefits:

    Dedicated Affiliate Manager
    and at least they're up front:

    General - free downloadable reminder software for Intelligent Shopping Toolbar Users
    Intelligent??? What does that make ME??

    Guess removing the cookie stuffer in the other thread is already huring them - LOLOL

    I just checked my mailboxes and I don't have such a nice private offer. Earning big commissions with little effort, I can take it.
    The good stuff is never for me.

    My reply to the email:
    There is no way in hell I would ever promote this parasite. I find it disgusting that you would even be pushing them on people. I spend enough time each month trying to get their freaking download application off people’s computers who never agreed to download it.

    I'm sure she thought she was being funny but that is absolutely amazing arrogance.

    I hope you forward this to a LinkShare corporate contact so they see how they are being portrayed.

    Hey, for what I know, Joe Mifsud is a cool guy at Linkshare, he helped me at least once. I guess it was his job to do anyway.

    ...free downloadable reminder software for Intelligent Shopping Toolbar Users
    What a crock of shit! Ask this idiot if he has his computer loaded up with their wonderful toolbar.
    Linkshare, nor its employees, have absolutely no conscience. It is possible that they have their employees hoodwinked into thinking that these BHOs are good, but geeezus man, even with ZERO affiliate marketing experience all you have to do is be semi-coherent in today's world to know that these things do nothing but clog up and slow down your computer. Not to mention the AM ramifications they have.

    I know well what is LinkShare, no pb, just a bunch of thieves but
    I'm wondering what they are up to:
    Try to put these this thread about "Shop at Home" together with:
    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=93091 started by Chris
    Cookie Stuffers Terminated

    LinkShare kicked a bunch of cookie stuffers today including
    AdSingular/The AdNetwork
    Yuri Maksymenko
    Globe7/Axill Inc
    AuctionSaleHelp
    Auction Work

    Are they removing the competition of Shop at Home to promote them better and increase their reach?
    How much is LinkShare paid for that?
    Axill is much more than just a cookie stuffer.

    Why are they removing a parasite to promote an other one?
    LinkShare, could you tell us what you're up to?

    All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

    In other words, networks who work with parasites have their pet parasites and other parasites are not welcome. They won't tolerate rogue parasites stealing from the pet parasites. They do, after all, have a reputation to maintain.

    Nothing's changed. Carry on as before.

    How do you guys know which linkshare merchants accept parasites like ebates? (besides visiting the sites) I would like to know because I don't want to promote any merchant that accept parasites in their program.

    It seems like linkshare have a lot of parasites. The only reason I have created a linkshare account is because I wanted to promote a specific merchant in their network.

    Just check the merchants listed here for eBates:
    http://www. ebates.com/all_stores.go
    See Coupons means "Moe Money Maker" is deactivated for these merchants.

    Neither Linkshare nor Axill or Adsinglar can't do any thing if their affiliates do fraud except suspending them LOL
