Money Grubbing

You’ll notice there are more ads on the site recently. It’s not because I need to recoup my investment in the site and need the pennies I get for these ads; it’s just because I’m a money grubbing bastard.

Anyway, this is the response I got to my application to the Target affiliate program:

We regret to inform you that Target.com has chosen not to accept
you into their affiliate program at this time. The reason for this
decision may be as follows:

  • Promote sexually explicit materials
  • Promote violence or hate toward any persons or groups
  • Promote discrimination based on race, sex, age, religion, nationality, disability or sexual orientation
  • Promote illegal activities
  • Promote tobacco or gambling
  • Contain, in our sole judgment, material that is defamatory, fraudulent or harassing
  • Misrepresent themselves as a Target Web site by using the “look and feel” of or text from our site
  • Include “Target” or variations or misspellings thereof in their domain names
  • Otherwise violate intellectual property rights of Target or its affiliates
  • Do not clearly state an online privacy policy to their visitors
  • Require a user name and password to access
  • Are non-US based sites or are sites that primarily serve a non-US based audience
  • Are unable to direct a reasonable amount of traffic by way of sales volume, clicks and page views to our site
  • Otherwise are considered (in our sole judgment) offensive or inappropriate
  • Link to or provide a portion of their commission or affiliate benefits to sites or organizations that violate any of the above criteria.

I dunno, maybe it’s the sex, the drugs, and violence.
