I baulked at him, because of how nutty that really sounds- especially when the affiliates in this case, would be the ones doing all the work, getting the audience, building the list- working on their business.
This guy, however, seems to think that is completely fine. There's another thread on this forum too, of a guy whining a bit about his struggle to find a JV partner... and a lot of posts in that thread too, are commenting on the nature of his 50/50 deal, that he thinks would be so great... but others on the outside looking in (potential affiliates, potential J.V. partners etc...)- see it differently.
I'd like, to therefore, create a thread, where other people chime in too, about some of the worst offers, or most absurd propositions they have seen- and why.
This thread could be useful in the future, when I want to show people that I am not the ONLY person who feels this way, about people who don't understand the concept of treating their affiliates or J.V. partners well- especially if that person is going to be bringing sales and customers to the table.
