I need to vent about brainless merchants who make changes on their sites or in their tracking systems that break affiliate links.


When something needs to be updated on their site, a savvy merchant will take care to make sure that existing affiliate links stay functional or at least get redirected someplace intelligent.

And, if that is truly not possible, a savvy merchant will let his/her affiliates know that updates are needed.

Broken affiliate links are bad news all around.

Grrrr ...
