    So my account was terminated because I was forcing clicks supposedly. No prior warning, just one email saying that I failed to respond to a request to eliminate cookie forcing through the links on my site. I work mainly with HP, I take the weekly deals in their emails and copy/paste the code into HTML just like the affiliate department instructed me to do when I was first learning to set up the site.

    I emailed them back multiple times and they don't seem to give two craps about it. I had $150 in commissions there and I can live without the stupid account, but what's the deal? Has anyone else had a similar situation?

    Maybe you should report the vendor to CJ. That's the only advice I can think of right now.

    If you read CJ's Publisher Agreement carefully you will see that you waive any legal rights to dispute their actions.
