Rejected by Chapters.Indigo.ca

I wanted to become a bookstore affiliate and maybe make a bit of money off some book reviews on my website. I am boycotting Amazon.com until they stop selling foie gras, so I decided to go with Chapters.Indigo.ca.

Here's the reply from Performics (who runs their affiliate programme).

To Rosemary Amey.ca,

Thank you for your interest in the Performics Affiliate Program. At this time we cannot approve your application because of at least ONE of the following reasons:

1. At this time we do not see an appropriate fit with your site and our network of Clients.
2. We were unable to access and review your site from the URL provided in your application, or the site was incomplete.
3. Your site includes adult-related and/or pornographic content.
4. There is religious content on your site.

It is our policy to fully review each site before approval into our network. Please feel free to re-apply after you have made the necessary adjustments to your site.

If you have questions or comments, please contact us at affiliate@performics.com.

I guess maybe the milk porn image on this page got me in trouble? (Even though it is no more explicit that the Ontario Milk Marketing Board picture on the same page which appeared all over public transit...) Or maybe it was the religious content?

Either way, it seems dumb to reject me for these reasons when Chapters.Indigo.ca sells sexually explicit books and religious books.

Oh well, it's their loss. I'm applying for Barnes and Noble next.
