Hey,

I can't really make that decision, but have sent the thread to our affiliate manager. I'll be straight with you - if this is the condition that our affiliate manager has set to these people, and they don't breach it anymore - then they are sticking to their word with us and I see no blatant reason for us to shut them down. We are responsible to ensure the affiliates linked to us act responsibly and sensibly with our players. We've asked them to do just that and in light of that I find it hard to insist on shutting them down entirely to punish them, so to speak - the anger it generates however is much more hardcore than I would expect - so as I said it'll go back to our aff team, and the decision simply lies with them.

Hope you understand where I'm coming from.

They first off started to promote Thrills by means of spam emails. They were then dealt with by them (not sure how). They then moved to your casino and you dealt with them but not by closing their affiliate account. That is disappointing because they had already form regarding spam. They knew what they were doing, were told off my another casino, but you appear to have given them another chance. Not good enough in my opinion.

They are nothing more than a bunch of spammers hoping to cash in. Look at it from our point of view. They must have bought an email list and within days of registering a domain they are sending mass emails. If that is not an intent to spam, I don't know what is.

Your choice what you do with this kind of affiliate of course. I said my piece and leave it at that.

No worries, it's been sent through as promised - spoke to my aff manager 10 mins ago.

My take on it (don't forget I too get showered in spam :p) is that if you choose to blast emails to a legally purchased list, at least make the unsubscribe clearly visible and make sure it works. I don't like receiving them either, but I do enjoy clicking that delete button!

I guess money talks? I have read the terms of very affiliate agreement I have, and ALL specifically prohibit the sending of unsolicited spam, A, because it's illegal and B, because it's not how any decent casino wants to be promoted. Obviously a big affiliate....

The anger is "hardcore" because of the draconian zero tolerance of even the slightest breach when it's a PLAYER, yet affiliates are seen getting all this leeway. A player bets 1p over the max bet - winnings confiscated, an affiliate deliberately sets up a spamming option - gets to keep his "winnings" (his account is not closed and he benefits from the sign ups delivered via the spam), and is merely told "don't do it again".

This is no innocent mistake either, this affiliate is deliberately jumping from one program to the next, spamming, then moving on to the next program when told "don't do it again". They are being rewarded because each time they get to keep the fruits of their spam burst, even if they dare not risk doing it again for the same program.
