    Did the private affiliate forum disappear?

    Hope not as we sure need to turn up the burners on all the new BHO clones. Seems they won't get put down easy and we can take the media exposure on spammers to relate to the popup BHO's pissing off our shoppers.

    I PM'd Haiko about this about a month ago, but never heard back. It's been gone for quite a while now. However, it should be pointed out that the last time I was able to log on to it, there had not been a post in over a month. Perhaps Haiko deleted it as it just was not being used.

    Yeah it had all gone quiet. Some of the stuff has carried on in other forums.

    A little victory for Ssanf I think

    Didn't delete anything in it but removed it because of inactivity and requests to join (a dead forum) didn't make sense to me.

    inactivity / Requests to join / a dead forum

    Well requests to join means people were interested in it. But you're right nobody posted anything in a long time.

    Well, I was so uninterested in that forum that I didn't even notice that it was gone. I didn't think there would be very many successful affiliates sharing their big money making tips with their strongest competition. Therefore, what was left for them to talk about other than other people which am assured was not allowed. Hence, inactivity.

    I am truly glad it is gone. I like the openness of ABW. If someone truly wants to share trade secrets with others, they can form a discreet "by invitation" group with PMs that will allow the same opportunity. So, nothing is lost by closing it and no one need feel excluded.

    SSanf had that private forum wired with her Crystal ball. It was great before the CoC was officially announced taking the wind out of our sales....or is that sails? Mostly it digressed into bashing my lame attempts at affiliate marketing as a purist. Seems like the regulars still frequent the chatroom with their secret handshakes -PM's and breastfests.

    I have no problem with PMs. I feel there is a qualitative difference between a "Just between you and me...." PM and a forum.
