    How come Paul Nichol's name isn't on this list on the agenda anymore???
    If he isn't doing anything wrong, why is he afraid to stand up and defend his company's actions?
    From the CJU agenda just now, even refreshed my page to make sure it had loaded completely:

    Publisher Panel - The Hot Buttons
    Moderated by Billy Hugo, Manager of Client Services, Commission Junction

    Panelists:
    Ahmet Can, Vice President, Content & Product Development, WhenU.com, Inc.
    Colin McIntyre, Sales Manager, NetFlip
    W. Kimathi Marangu, Vice President & General Manager, eCommerce, Schoolpop, Inc.

    I see he is speaking:

    Publisher Success Story - Ebates.com
    Paul Nichols, Director Business Development, Ebates.com

    CJU Alumnus, Paul Nichols returns to share the success story of Ebates.com, a cash-back, incentive-based shopping portal that offers discount shopping to its 3 million members. Learn how Ebates.com leverages its relationships with its members, its advertisers and Commission Junction to focus on growing its program.

    But we aren't allowed to confront the speakers are we???

    Sure would be nice to see how eBates uses "BHO affiliate applications to alert their 3 million members on our affiliate pre-sell text and resulting merchant clickstream. Might also like to see how they qualify as a merchant, when they sell no products and make merchants give them the highest commission rates of all affiliates. We all know the networks built special autoload features in their ASP network applications for them to have unfair advantages over normal affiliates.

    Obviously the networks need to change their TOS to reflect what is a merchant. Currently is is anyone who pays their monthly fees and pays a commission no matter how small to OTHER affiliates. All Dupers are margin players and abhor the idea of having to touch a product or deal with consumers...yet they are given the merchant status tag.

    Ok, here is the answer, as has been clarified to me:
    When I talked to Todd Crawford on the phone on Tuesday, about my comments on this board, and my attending of CJU, he said the reason Ebate's Paul Nichols was going to be there was because he was on the "Hot Buttons" Panel. And because this Ebates thing is a hot button issue it was fitting.
    Todd also stated he would be moderating it.

    Well, evidently Todd was mistaken and Paul Nichols is only speaking on the Success of Ebates. Evidently Todd was mistaken on his agenda or his own conference. Because evidently Paul Nichols was never on the "Hot Buttons" panel, only telling his success story.

    I just wish Todd would download the Top Moxie program and see it in action for himself. Once seen, I cannot see how anyone could defend this or think it is right.

    I would be surprised if Todd and CJ were not fully aware of what it does.

    Everyone whom I have talked to, who says they have talked to the people at Ebates has said this:
    Oh, they didn't know it was doing that"
    Well, then, does that mean they are going to fix it pronto? And where is our apology from them?

    First you have to have a loud mouth and speak out in the forums. Get him nervous. Because of my speaking out about ebates and Paul Nichols, and Paul Nichols appearance at CJU, Todd felt he should give me a call I guess, said he was just checking to see if he needed to have a straight jacket at CJU for me.

    hehehehehehehe

    Wow, Todd has never called me and I have been quite vocal about CJ at times. You mean I need to be even more vocal to get a call? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Well, after my sales slumped to almost zero for 10 straight days and CJ said everything was working fine I almost got started again. But fortunately my complaining through CJ support must have worked. Someone turned my tracking/sales switch back on yesterday and things are going great.

    Actually, I think Paul Nichols probably complained to Todd and Todd was supposed to call and try to smooth things over with me so Paul wouldn't have to be a scaredy cat at CJU.
    Probably doesn't want anyone asking any questions, just wants everyone to say, Wow, isn't that Ebates just the greatest! They are always the affiliate of the month! The bring in so many sales! Lets pat them on the back!

    I don't plan on making an ass out of myself, but I fully plan to ask very pointed questions and will demand an answer. I want him to explain how he feels knowing full well he is redirecting other affiliate's traffic, traffic from merchants that they shouldn't have had to pay for, and what do they plan to do IMMEDIATELY to stop it.

    I don't want to hear the "Well it takes a while to fix the software" They can just disable it until such time as it gets fixed! They have taken our money long enough!

    Give me 7-days and I teach her about ..
    "Oh.

    OH!

    You mean to say I'm the wrong sex? Ahhhhh, I understand."

    Todd is more than just busy he has plans to make and a meeting deadline and CJU now to worry about what this all means. He's doing his best to learn about dealing with parasites. I'll hold all his calls and see if I can get you 10 minutes with him...OK?
