Some of my CJ advertisers pay consistently and throw regular generous bonuses. Some, however, pay in the beginning, then suddenly stop for no apparent reason, given same traffic, clicks, content and Terms. This has led me to believe too that CJ is easily manipulated by advertisers (though I don't know how, cookie deletion appears to be the reason here.) I don't even bother complaining to CJ. I have my own benchmarks for each site before I pull bad advertisers.
Amazon is only seasonal for me when it can give pleasant surprises.
AdSense, on the other hand, is painless and rewarding. Simple lock and load with a secure feeling (touch-wood) that Big G has the resources, will and means to kick baddies out. I provide honest/gameless content to visitors and advertisers and expect the same.
Oh, and AdSense pays me many-fold for a fraction of effort as compared to affiliate programs.
So I'd rather be comfy and lazy than unnecessarily overworked and frustrated. :)
