Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
So I send a lot of emails, and they never answer, so I then sent a mail with four letter words, so the only email that I get back was a telling me that I would be deactivated from cj.
My question now is What I need to do to be activated again?. I already send an apology for this, but I have had no answer.

You're a webmaster, after all so use your skills to let the world know what bluehost did to you via CJ's program, ods are one or both of them will want to clear things up if you can get the word out that they do not pay for referrals you send them.
Ok, ok I know... they ARE the biggest and and have great reporting and so on... BUT, can you really trust them?
From personal experience I can say that I DO NOT TRUST CJ. I have great success with so many other networks yet with CJ it's always pathetic. I've promoted CJ products that saw 20% CTR from my sites, 1000's of clickthroughs and NO SALES!
In comparison, networks such as ClickBank, ClixGalore convert great and ALWAYS pay, Fast.
I know CJ has a huge selection of merchants and products, but I think they treat their publishers like #*$! and their payment times are crazy.
That's my rant. :)
I properly investigate about Merchant, which I promote.
I once tried Hosting Merchants, I made a few sales but, the merchants reversed the sales, and didn't pay me.
So I read discussion forums and found out that its their usual habit, so instead of emailing them, I changed my category.
I a merchant do not pay you, then do not waste your time on them by emailing them again and again, they are fraud and can do any thing, they can contact CJ and complain about you, so the best thing is not to waste your time and find any other merchants, instead I will suggest you to keep out of Hosting Merchants.
I think its impossible to get back your account.
Register for a new account using a different email address.

You might want to take this up with cj also advising them of this and have them find out why the company did not give you credit for the sale. Maybe they have a provision that you can't use the affiliate commission for your own purchases or maybe they have have a valid explanation.

Where you have to be careful is to make sure the actual merchant allows such transactions. Most do, but some don't.
Infront of me only, one of my friend purchased a Yahoo hosting account and as usual they havent credited the amount to my account. They even doesnt respond to mails.
Thatz why PPC model is booming.
Hey cayetanob, call your credit card company and cancel your order. Thatz the best.
I NEVER click on my own ads. The only reason I could think of is low follow through on clicks. I had about 5000+ clicks over the last few months but only 1 purchase.
Also, can anyone suggest a good program to supply alternative ads for Adsense PSAs?
I always click on the links when I first place them to make sure they are working.
Maybe it depends on how much revenue you make. If CJ thinks you signed up just to get discounted prices on stuff and not as a legitimate webmaster, I can see them not appreciating that.
I was just deactivate by CJ today ... I had about 5000+ clicks over the last few months but only 1 purchase.
Didn't CJ recently change their terms so publishers get deactivated if there haven't been any transactions during the last 30 days? See section 6c of their PSA agreement. [cj.com]
No sales this month? CJ say "Bye-bye"
If your purchase was credited more than 30 days ago, maybe that's why you got deactivated.
On the other hand, that has been there for a long time, and when I originally signed up with CJ I had no sales for many months. CJ didn't deactivate me. Now this month may be my first $2000+ month with CJ. Good thing they stood by me and didn't deactive me right away.
Whether or not you can buy through your own links depends on the merchant. Some merchants allow it, some don't.
