  2. No need to bother with that link, just go directly to
    http://www.photobox.co.uk/register/register.html and cut out the
    spammer.

  3. The reason photobox have to offer 30 free prints to attract customers
    is that the quality of their prints is sincerely mediocre.

    Absolute crap. I have had hundreds of prints done from Photobox and not
    once have I had cause for complaint with their quality.

    I agree- their quality is very, very good for the price. They don't meddle
    with your files either- no changes to colour/contrast or sharpening.

    Interesting that 'Dom at The Print Space' thinks that a print company would
    benefit from giving away free prints if the customers thought they were
    mediocre- surely people wouldn't come back as paying customers if they were
    not happy? Do you offer free inkjet prints Dom, so I can see how good they
    are by comparison, and if they'll last as long?

    My god you get something for nothing and someone has to complain, for a
    start it is not only photobox, second Spamming is the abuse of electronic
    messaging systems to indiscriminately send unsolicited bulk messages, look
    at the post it is not bulk it has only been sent to this group as I thought
    just maybe people into photography might like some free prints.

    SHOOT ME NOW HARRY, WHAT A CRIME

    So you can assure us, quite categorically, that you have absolutely
    nothing whatsoever to do with the site you mentioned ?

    However, you are not offering useful advice, you are using a newsgroup to
    drive traffic to your commission- paying links. I expect that is a breach of
    the terms of the NG.

  12. If he/she had read through the terms and conditions that he/she agreed
    to when becoming an affiliate with Photobox, then he/she would have
    found the following, note particularly the last sentence in quotes.

    <Quote>
    3.2 Links must not mislead Visitors. Links may only be placed with the
    intention of delivering Valid Clicks.

    3.3 Affiliates must not "spam" or use unsolicited email. If DWL
    discovers that an Affiliate is "spamming" or using unsolicited email,
    DWL will immediately terminate that Affiliate's participation in the
    Service. Affiliates must not place Links in newsgroups.</Quote>

  13. There is a perfectly good and underused site for this sort of thing:-

    uk.rec.photo.adverts

    I look at it daily....!

    Some newsgroup contributors appear to have confused
    the meaning of "discussion" with "digression".
