    Respond back with "Sure no problem, but before I disclose those details my lawyer will need you, your marketing director, and the marketing director of eBay to sign and mail back a non disclosure agreement, statement of liability, non compete agreement, and a security of trade secrets agreement. Let me know where to mail the documents." :D

    That's pretty much the best thing you could ever tell them. There is no where in their TOS that specifies you needing to have referrers.

    You could write a text link on a wall in a gas station bathroom that says "for a good time go to pepperjamebayafflink.com" photo it, and email it to them. That way you have taken care of your referrer problem since they're all type ins. You can also tell then that your traffic is very targeted since you only hit up the finest gas station bathrooms around (no key on a cinderblock marketing for you).

    That is actually a very good response. To the point, and not defensive or confrontational.

    Ive had the same problems with merchants asking where my traffic is coming from,

    I always tell them

    i am a media buyer and don't wish to disclose where i get my traffic from as in the past i have told merchants where i get my traffic only to see my earnings VANISH"

    Then i always finish up by saying if you want me to remove your offer and replace it with one of your competiors its fine by me

    Twist the knife a bit...lol

    "Dear PJN,

    You are my competition because you are not only an affiliate network but an affiliate marketing company.

    What in God's name makes you think I'm going to tell my competition where my traffic comes from?

    On a more congenial note, please send me your pot supplier's phone number because clearly he is selling you the good shit.

    Love,

    Me"

    I'm liking all of this, in fact the more affiliates that strip the referrers the more legit the strategy will become.

    Quick, someone write a special report and give it to Fra_nk K*rn to promote!

    I wonder what has gotten into PJ because it does not mention anything whatsoever about blank referers in the EPN terms of service. Does PJ have their own TOS for this?

    considering this is an old thread( well, a few days), i think it sheds some light about ebay insisting that low quality traffic is reason for banning on epn.
    it seems that if they cannot seem to figure out the source of the traffic, they deem it as low quality.

    I think they are trying to show that they are 100% whitehat network , so you must be doin some kinda blackhat things.like i listed an offer about finance on Cxdigital 3 days back and yesterday when i saw stats i was overwhelmed there was 62 fake leads with 1 series of IP i contacted thier support and they banned that affiliate who did all matter ,I think you get the idea dont be blacky with them:)

    I think it is safe to say that 20-30K hits a day of blank referers is probably going to raise a red flag everytime.
