    Filesonic was my main way of making money. Looks like I better pay some attention to PPC/ clickbank now...

    Was a small source of income for me also...
    Damn internet is getting more and more controlled.
    Less and less "easy" ways to earn money.
    Well i guess its time for real IM work now..

    Also Uploaded.to did not close its affiliate program, but they blocked all US traffic.

    Paying alternatives still left: Filejungle, Oron, Filepost, Uploadstation, Bitshare and Hotfile.

    Well they must have US servers, and they used Megaupload as an exemple and it was the biggest.

    It was a message which has been heard loud and clear.

    "No matter who you are we will come after you"

    I believe i'll go back on IRC with hotline and carracho ! :p

    What's the likelyhood of this being the end of filehosts with affiliate programs?

    I dont think this is the END:
    The demand is just too high.
    Some alternative Filehosts will come.

    Its going to be the end for a while,until the hosts re adjust their business plans and where they are operating their servers. Probably in late 2012 there should be some good hosts again.
