    noticed recently in October on multiple adult networks, a shard drop off in sales on PPS adult dating offers. The PPL also dropped at this time too from like $.35 EPC average to about $.12 EPC average. The PPS at that time stayed good though but than dropped off sharply at end of October and has stayed that way since. If it was just one network I'd say its normal, as it is and it happens every few months but I've been in the gamea long time and I know when I smell a fish, and this is large mouth bass right now. Im tempted to name some, but i think ill leave that to commentators. The reason i post this is to bring attention to the matter, I have a close friend, a whale in the game and he noticed the same thing too and time frame. This type of behavior should not be rewarded, take note of the networks you're suspicious of if you are too experiencing this and halt all traffic to their offers!

    You say "multiple adult networks". That is not "all the adult networks", then, what ones?
    It could be some adult networks do scrubbing, but I don't think they "collude", so all of them agree to scrub on the same amount the same month, this is a conspiracy theory :) I think these are competitor networks and not even talk each other in some cases.
    I currently use tubecamgirl and bongacash CPA/free programs, and signups are same (or even more) in past 30 days (nobember), than it was in august and september (in fact sept 2015 was wort than sept 2014 for me). I did not used recently chaturbate or crakrevenue because I think these are "saturated" at least for my methods - I mean, me and others already shown cb and cr for 2 years to my traffic, they know it already. New or smaller sites, are unknown to them, higher conversion is probable (but again, if you keep same offer link for 1-2 years, it drops whatever offer is!... is called saturation).

    Thanks for your reply, def not a conspiracy theory man have you ever been to AVN?? The heads of all these companies all talk and party together, its really a small community and its not paranoid at all to think that parties would game to best outcome. So when I notice something shady i say something and crak for sure got worse, if you're getting new unique traffic than the offer isnt the problem and infact often older brands mean trust and convert higher sales, they recognize the brand.
