    It was not necessary for me.
    Judge yourself who is the lowlife.

    No words...

    banning this affpower shill was long overdue. glad it finally happened.

    now we can discuss this rogue programme in peace and with arguments and presented evidence instead of goin back and forth with this idiot.

    Some weeks ago AffPower tried to remove this video - without success - from Youtube:

    "Dear Leopold Friesen,This is to notify you that we have received a privacy complaint from an individual regarding your content:------------------------------------------------------------- youtube]3Aqzy4DoENw
    The information reported as violating privacy is at 0:18-0:48-------------------------------------------------------------We would like to give you an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within the content reported. You have 48 hours to take action on the complaint.
    "



    Obviously Youtube rejected the request for censorship.

    Crooks tends to do crooked sh#t. Creating a new aff program under a different name(s), fits with their criminal profile ;)

    We took them down for de-tagging our players, steer clear!

    Where are we promoting them, will be blacklisted immediately. Did they sneak past us?

    One of their brands (if I am right Oceanbets) was at your website. See you de-listed your website.

    A. How do you know how long we promoted this brand?
    B. Initially there were no problems, as soon as we became aware strange things were afoot with our stats we pulled them down.
    C. Why do you care?

    I'll answer C. AffPower and the casinos owned and operated by the GameTech Group were caught pirating NetEnt Software back in 2016. Furthermore they are, or one of their affiliates is, responsible for the hacking of hundreds if not thousands of vulnerable wordpress sites.

    With the owners of GameTech doing absolutely nothing about this criminal activity. Let me give you an example.

    This site here: http://thehandupproject.org/ is not gambling related, yet has had this page injected into it http://thehandupproject.org/kakymyb

    Notice it is promoting shitty AffPower Casinos. Why have they done this? Well it is in part, part of their negative seo tactics. They scrape content from affiliate sites such as mine, serve said scraped content to googlebot, but redirect visitors to that Affpower casino template.

    Thus hoping the targeted affiliate site gets hit by Panda and their rankings in google subsequently drop.

    Yet they are hacking yes HACKING innocent websites to do this. Presumably to stop them shelling out for a gazillion domain names.

    They are scum and this is the reason why Zuga, myself and pretty much any other iGaming Affiliate cares if another site promotes them.

    We stopped promoting them in February of 2017.
    It's hard to believe a business would operate this way, very shameful.

    In Star Trek analogy you could refer to AffPower as the Klingons orbiting Uranus. :)

    I get that, it's quite painfully obvious :rolleyes:

    My question was more of a why am I being called to the carpet for advertising them for 2 years when I said we pulled them down due for bad behavior (over a year and a half ago)? It took me by surprise that'd I'd be questioned why we advertised them and seemed odd. So that's why I asked why you cared...o_O
