Who is benefiting from the rejects
For the purpose of knowing what type of material I am subjecting my users to and to get a feel for the quality of the content, I signed up for a relevant offer, using all correct information and the email address Sitepoint@mydomain.com. Which I received the download link for. Offer ID: w_sitb10 How to Build Your Own ASP.NET 3.5 Web Site Using C# & VB, 3rd Edition - Free 219 Page Preview! Offered by: Sitepoint. This transaction was rejected. For what reason, I can't imagine as there is no more relevant user than me for this content. Even though the content is very elementary and of no particular use to me, know one could determine that from the questions on the request form. Maybe, my zip code didn't contain a specif number or my job title isn't quite what they were looking for. Anyway I don't care about the reject, as the sole purpose was to get a feel for the content. The point is, today I get an email addressed to Sitepoint@mydomain.com, an email address that was only used once for the said purpose, asking me to request another offer, the link in the email links to an offer request at http://solo.tradepub.com/, which is obviously bypassing any commission that an affiliate should be entitled to. Why is that? I also made sure to select no to 'Would you like to receive EMAIL notices of other print or online publications, and relevant emails from TradePub.com?'. If you are going to be spamming our users, shouldn't we at least get credit for any resulting lead?
