    Well earlier this week I got a email from CJ saying due to inactivity they may have to close my account if I dont start driving traffic to it and makig money with it. WTF? I mean it wasn't word for word like that but that was the point they were trying to get across.
    I never really paid much if any attention to my CJ accounts (I have 2 of them). SO now I am like oh you want to mess with me. What is the very best way to blackhat a CJ account. I dont care if it is high risk of getting banned.

    I logged into my cj account the other day and it said that it was closed due to inactivity, but it just let me renew it and I still had my relationships intact. So I say it's no big deal.

    Cj does this periodically. I personalyl don't think its great, but it does weed out accounts that aren't being used at all.

    I think if they close your account due to inactivity they also steal the money you earned if it is below the payment threshold

    Why inside the CJ Account Manager does it allow you to link your CJ accounts? Does this mean that you are actually allowed to have multiple accounts?

    CJ does say to maintain your account, is to sign up for a merchant and buy their product/service with your affiliate link.

    anybody know of any cj merchants that offer commissions on cheap prodcuts, that costs $5 to consumers?

    just get a friend to sign up and pay him cash. Don't do it from your own computer unless you're using socks5 proxies

    I already got my account closed due to inactivity ! Thus, who cares ? Create a new one and your back in business ( as you are not breaking any rules by creating a new account ).

    If you have an account that has earnings something but is below the payment threshold you would never get this message. Otherwise expect this every 6 months or so from your last earnings.

    my 2c - CJ are "great" at shaving sales from voucher sites and then sending e-mails like the one above. When getting back to you, they recommend buying through your own links (aka cheating the advertisers), but don't do it through the same voucher site as they'd shave that sale as well :)
    You can find better ways to monetize your time and energy - CJ has taken too many hits recently and they are shaking. And this comes from a WH perspective :)
