    I am sorry, but this is one of the worst videos you ever made.

    If I would not know it better, I would swear to see CNN`s Wolf Blitzer reading biased news from a teleprompter. News picked out of the real and full context. News where the host "accidentally" forgot to mention the full context, in this case the fact, that the rouge sponsor Affiliate Edge and the wonderful new mangement of Affiliate Edge is working together with hackers and obviously refuse to stop the cooperation what can be proven done within 5 minutes.

    THIS is a fact, no rumour, and here is the proof:

    ===> http://www.gpwa.org/forum/heavily-in...tml#post840916

    Nothing personal Mr. Blitzer, but "white noise" propaganda to make the audience ready for rejecing the temporarily ban on Affiliate Edge as soon as possible that the sponsor money can continue to flow is also reporting only half of the truth. The hacker case itself would be reason enough for a suspension.

    But will it be done? The same story with Buffalo Partners where I am still waiting for a video since two years.

    Keep doing your thing J! I am surprised why Michael made you water down the video as such. All the facts can be found in this thread here http://www.gpwa.org/forum/affiliate-...ed-231142.html

    Also concerning this:

    and an alleged relationship with AffPower.
    There is nothing alleged about it. Even the horses mouth in the form of Stuart Ferster has stated in an email to me that they have two 'Affpower Employees' acting as consultants.

    Hopefully CasinoCity will allow you to publicise this FACT next week

    This thread is a texbook example that bootlicking only can't discover truths or reveal anything!

    "All videos are viewed before release by Casino City, and they must be [by]
    Casino City management."

    "
    I am surprised why Michael made you water down the video as such [...] Hopefully CasinoCity will allow you to publicise this FACT next week"

    I am not quite sure. after this short and unfortunately non-approved Casino City Management News promo is out:



    But the ratings for the next or one of the APCW video release(s) will be without any doubts fantastic if the title catch the eyes and includes Affiliate Edge.

    To be clear, the original video was referred to me on the grounds that the managing editor previewing it before public posting believed it portrayed some information as facts where it was premature to draw such a conclusion based on what J.Todd or we knew at the time. I'd like to be clear that J. Todd has almost unlimited editorial freedom (I believe it has been years since a video has been referred to me for any reason), and that is the way I want it. However, based on what I was told, I did conclude the original video contained some content presented as fact where that was inappropriate based on what was known to us at the time. So I requested that the video be revised so that the one narrow area where there were factual questions could be further researched.

    The simple truth is, that evidence about Affiliate Edge is outsourced by accident in a foreign thread and does not get attention.

    There is evidence, that

    a) Affiliate Edge has the possibility to deactivate every affiliate link within seconds to a blank page.

    b) Affiliate Edge was informed days ago by CCM in person by Michael about affiliate links that are proven a tool for criminals.

    c) Affiliate Edge did not deactivated the criminal affiliate links also not after personal report from Michael!

    Any questions?!

    Proof is here:

    ===> http://www.gpwa.org/forum/heavily-in...tml#post841621

    I wish CCM and all others a wonderful evening.
    Don't forget to feed the birds in the garden that you do at least one good thing today.

    Also, keep in mind the same company owns AffCash... I am not a fan of releasing sealed court documents. Not very professional when the other party is on a gag order! Call me cynical but it almost seems like someone is setting themselves up for a reactivation
    of a sponsorship.. Just sayin.

    What sealed court documents do you believe were released? The only court documents I have seen are not sealed, and are in fact the judgment of the court as published on the court website for all to see.

    In terms of someone setting themselves up for a reactivation of sponsorship, that makes no sense. First of all, we did not find out about the documents from Affiliate Edge. And secondly, and far more importantly, the hole Affiliate Edge has dug for themselves has gotten deeper, and not shallower, since their sponsorship was suspended given the terms changes currently published on their website.

    The most important word in this is the word "almost".

    "The most important word in this is the word "almost"."

    Exactly. For an artist "almost" is a link in a chain.
    He is still chained.

    Look at the title of this thread: "Affiliate Edge Rumors and Facts"
    Would be interesting to know who scripted this title.
    The correct writing would be "Affiliate Edge so called rumors and hidden Facts"

    Moreover: Imagine, in some months a whistleblower reveals, that there is indeed a collusion between AffPower and Affiliate Edge and the CCM have had knowledge about it because of reports of GPWA forum members on different communication channels. Some posts here on the forum gives the impression, that there is some kind of collusion that leads to a cover-up.

    My bad maybe the court document you allowed to be posted on APCW( your sister site) is not sealed but it is till IMO very unfair to JF. I wonder how you can do this to him knowing he is on a gag order and connect defend himself. Micheal, you have enjoyed breaking bread with JF for many years, I am shocked at the way you are handling this situation. It appears to me that you are biased and have blinders on with the new situation. There is plenty of proof this company is going down for good. You need to warn affiliates and stop watering down the videos. Also, if you have to make sure affiliates know that the same company owns AffCash.

    The document provided is the ruling of the court, and not the opinion of any of the brothers. During the court hearing all of the brothers defended their positions. The document is the ruling of the court and explains all of the positions taken, and the reason the judge made the determination he did given both the accusations and the defenses made. From what I have been told, the picture the judge paints of the two older brothers is pretty bad. The two older brothers have said the judge determined that Jonathan had lied. While that is true, the judge also determined that the two older brothers lied as well. He was critical of everyone on that front. I would suggest you read the ruling to understand what the judge was told by everyone and how the judge formed the opinion he did. It is not simply a statement of conclusions.

    In terms of the current situation with Affiliate Edge, I am just after the truth, and so initially did not make many statements until I felt the background information was clear. I do agree with you that Affiliate Edge has a very rocky road ahead. Ignoring everything else, the term changes alone, which are very clear, bode very badly for their future as I posted here:

    I read the document and found it to be confusing, why can't lawyers speak in clear terms I am happy to see the latest video, all of us in the background already knew who was running the place. Bailey does not make statements he cannot back his ass up with.
