    If you get banned from a few networks for breaking their TOS do they put you on a ShitList that other networks can see your name on, that will prevent them from accepting you?

    Pretty much, for lack of a better explanation, yes.

    If you planning on doing anything that could risk your account for short term profit - don't do it as your long term goal will then run the risk of being null-and-void.

    How will you know if your name is on this list? Is there a website or database somewhere to check?

    If you do wrong it's there. There is no website or database.
    As the old saying goes - if you do nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about.

    Perhaps a slight oversight, but this is BHW after all, and 50% of us are doing something outside the TOS.

    Anyway, from a technical standpoint, rather than alleged auras of negativity floating around you, many CPA networks share the same tracking platform, and these tracking platforms often have a central database where data on fraudulent or problem affiliates is stored.

    That too, and it's not uncommon for network owners to share a "bad aff list" because no one wants bad traffic. We(network owners) know there is prolly some shady things going on here and there, as long as the leads backout on the advertisers end(make them money) their usually okay with it, but that varies greatly. But if one affiliate pushed outright bad traffic such as proxy traffic, it's often shared with other network owners as no one wants to get fraud traffic.
