“For the Dickish move of the year…”
This award is given to those who go beyond the call of duty of being a simple dick. And in fact, when there is more than one – it’s a bag of dicks. This year – like the lat ithis coveted award is bestowed upon Affiliate Edge – they are run by a bag of dicks.
The Mother of all Shaftings
As many of you might remember, in 2017 Affiliate Edge bamboozled their business partners out of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars by detagging players from affiliates. Dave Sawyer, aka Webzcas, took them to court over this, but the judge ruled that the case should have gone to arbitration instead of the UK court. He then ordered the legal fees to be split between Dave and Affiliate Edge. Even though Dave was only suing for about £5K, AE racked up £21K in legal fees. Just goes to show that AE knew that if they had lost the case every wronged affiliate webmaster would have come out of the woodwork.
So Dave was screwed out of roughly £12k – but his webmaster brethren came together and pitched in relieving him of this financial burden. Some of this is described here.
What a bunch of dicks.
