    I can understand how Email and Zip submits get shaved but how come when i promoted a Toolbar it got shaved from 15% to 5% over the course of 3 days?

    It's not like the traffic can't convert for the advertiser, so why get shaved?

    Seems strange - anybody had similar experiences? :confused::confused:

    Probably because most publishers who have 'toolbars' are shady, scumbags, or both.

    Yup, shady as hell. Quite profitable though promoting them. :p
