F*** LinkSynergy

A few days ago I was considering whether to drop the iTunes Affiliate program. It looks like that decision was made for me. After going through LinkSynergy’s re-registration process, I received the following email:

We regret to inform you that iTunes has chosen not to accept your application for the iTunes Affiliate Program at this time. This may be because:

— The content is unrelated to iTunes
— Your site is temporarily down or under construction ¿-please make sure to apply again after 2 weeks.
— A wrong or misspelled URL given in the application. Please correct the problem and apply again.
— Your site is aesthetically unpleasing
— Your site promotes tobacco, alcoholic beverages or excessive drinking/drug use
— Your site contains extreme religious content
— Your site is international (with a majority of visitors based OUTSIDE the US. or written in a foreign language)

I was accepted as a member of the iTunes affiliate program in Sept. 2004 and now they’re treating this as a new application. I just cancelled my LinkSynergy account, since I don’t like any of their other programs and they make me jump through hoops for little or no profit. If they paid as much as Google AdSense, it would be different.
