Say you’re an online book store, and you have an affiliate program. Of course, affiliates come and go. So, what do you do when, say, slashdot stops being your affiliate, and someone clicks on an affiliate link left lying around in an old book review? Do you

  1. Show the book anyway, but not pay the affiliate? Or…
  2. Tell a potential customer to go elsewhere?
