    I don't know if I am allowed to say their name here but I am going to anyway and if its naughty I'll remove it. So here is the story...

    I run a porn tube and I am extremely happy with the script I am using. It works smoothly and the development team are so helpful. They go far beyond their responsibilities to make sure everybody is happy with their product. I see this as extremely professional so I wanted to give back to them a little. They also offer a generous affiliate program, so I did some keyword research, registered a domain name for the keyword and have spend a good 5-6 hours writing articles and getting the website running.

    After I had constructed the first page I tried to sign up to their affiliate program which is run by a company called Avangate. They send me an email the next day saying that I had been rejected from their program because my website is not yet complete. Personally, I think this is pathetic. It would be in their best interest to have an affiliate link on the page BEFORE traffic starts to role in.

    I then sent them back an email, as I had done a considerable amount of work on the website since. Meanwhile I tried to login or signup again. My login did not work and I hit registers and got a message back that read 'Your email address and website URL are already in our database". Well I guess its not just my website that is in complete, their's doesn't even function properly.

    Meanwhile I received an email back that reads...
    "Hello,


    We are sorry but your website conflicts with our acceptance policy, more specific - It promotes material with explicit sexual content. (hxxp://xxx.avangate. com/affiliates/sign-up-policy.php)"

    This must be a joke right? I bet they are all sitting back having a good giggle. They are offering a product that is a porn tube CMS, yet your not allowed to talk about sexual material within the squeez page?

    Moral of the story, Avangate is a fucking joke!
