    Let me share my experience with a network that I won't mention since they don't deserve it.

    So here is the story:
    I've send my application to a netowork, some of their aff managers added me on Skype and we had a conversation about my traffic source, etc., standart stuff. Then I asked him about the owner of the network and told that I saw some bad words about him and the network at all. And here is the mistake I've made. He asked if I can tell where I saw this and I was HONEST with him, mentioning BHW.
    So my application was rejected but I learned a lesson: Don't be honest with your aff manager for everything. That doesn't mean you need to lie them for the important things. Just don't tell them what they don't (need to)know.

    Why I wrote this post?
    Well, there is a saying: Learn from the mistakes of others. You can?t live long enough to make them all yourself.

    PS: Sorry for my english

    telling any affiliate manager that you visit black hat sites is suicidal. why would you do that?

    difference between stupidly honest and being clear to what you want and being smart in getting it.... get it? Even Nelson Mandela killed people he was a terrorist but he did it.

    Eh... Most network owners frequent blackhat sites and INTERNET MARKETING FORUMS (e.g. BHW). That's how they make money... lol.
