    you know who you are.
    people spend their hard-working dollars and time on promoting your offers to high quality traffic.
    and then you shave our leads.
    and then we report you to our affiliate managers,
    and the managers have tons of excuses for it but don't ban you.
    that tells me there is something fishy going on.

    this is 4 networks now that the SAME EXACT THING has happened.

    affiliate networks need to come up with better ways of capping and shaving that don't hurt the guys who are sending genuine leads their way.
    cuz this is disheartening, discouraging, and i bet we could make a case of out-right fraud in a court of law over it (not that we would cuz that would be dumb).

    i'm gonna go drink this out of my system now.

    eh.. the reason some networks start to scrub is cause your leads may not be converting for the advertiser. I'm sure you're tired of hearing that but its usually the case.

    i know for a fact that the traffic is very high quality.

    this really isn't scrubbing, it's straight up shaving.
    i think there are other reasons for it, such as:
    - the advertiser or network has scripts in place that kick in automatically based on network sales quotas
    - the network starts shaving to compensate for the advertiser shaving
    - people are just greedy and dishonest
    - they are putting me through a trial of some sort

    whatever the case may be, when i know that my leads are solid and i'm not getting paid for them, it makes me want to punch someone in the face.
