While I cannot state that the FatCow's affiliate program is a scam I have still had quite unpleasant experience with it. This article does not concern the hosting service provided by FatCow.com (which still could be OK), it's just about the affiliate program they are offering via Commission Junction to partners promoting the web hosting.
I wonder about iPage. Their affiliate banners seem to be everywhere. http://live-free-in-an-unfree-world.com
