To bad Woot put you on probation. I enjoy your reviews. I'll link directly to your blog for the next 4 days. Thanks for your effort, even if the Woot insiders don't feel the same.

I agree with anon #1. They'll come back around soon Jess Byrd. Don't worry. Either way, we'll still come to the blog nightly. Other's will find the usefulness one way or another. Just too bad they'll have a harder time of finding it until WootBot wises up. Good post today, btw.

Hey. Thanks for the kind words guys. It's no big deal. I'm not worried. I know Woot peeps will come around. And if not, oh well. The Useful Linkage blog is my thing now. I can't think of anything I'd rather do at 10pm each nite. So, I'll keep on it either way. Thanks. And please keep the good feedback coming. Maybe Woot Mods will see it and realize where the love really is.

There's too much bitching about the blog in the World of Woot forum. See the thread "Who is jessiebyrd004?" and you'll see the source of the angst.

Man. They even changed your blog link. That's just not cool. Making dislike woot a bit. Sorry to say it, but it's true. Ouch.

don't worry 'bout woot too much jessie. your blog gets plenty of love from regulars. though woot needs your blog and your blog needs woot, you can still have a loved and useful blog without ever going on the discussion board. i agree with bobby though, sucks for the future wooters who might never hear of the useful linakge blog. oh well.

Are there really referral links on this site? That appears to be what is at the crux of this issue. And it looks like the broken link has been fixed. It was probably Jess who changed it back. Whatever the case, it appears Woot has made up its mind about this. See the Jessie Byrd thread in the forums and you'll see a statement from Gatzby saying a week or so ago he was going to stop it. Not much you can do about that.

There are referral links on this site. Of course. Why wouldn't there be. Not sure what that has to do with anything. I've never tried to hide that. A regular reader introduced me to the idea a year or so ago. I think his name was James. It's not a big deal. Its not like I'm tricking anybody and its not like I make loads of cash. So what. Does that really bother anyone? or change the way you view this blog? Seriously?

It is because you have referral links on this site that you have been banned from posting further spam to Woot. If you do it again, the ban will be permanent.
