    Hey what's up everyone. I just wanted to share some fantastic news with you guys.

    For the past few years, I have tried many projects. These projects have failed due to not having enough capital, or people screwing me over just to do it. It has really been a traumatic experience to get something successful running, but over the past week I've managed to build a steady business.

    My whole life's goal is to make my money on AUTOPILOT, as well as provide quality service to all of my customers. I will not disclose what I do, because I do not have a service thread yet on BHW, and I DO NOT want to break any rules.

    Let's just say that I'm making $70-100 on COMPLETE autopilot, minus an hour or two of making sure everything is running straight. Constant changes are being made so I won't have to really provide any time towards this business, and I'm just so proud to finally have something work out.

    If you're the same as me, and have had some troubling experiences in your life, all I can suggest to you is to invest invest invest, and keep working hard! There will be a payoff.

    Cheers BHW, my black hat's off to you.

    Wait a minute, wait a minute - your the guy who has been begging me for work to get income and taking a fairly low price to make articles. Then you want me to invest in your real life venture, then you are making your own article site, and now all of a sudden your making money on auto-pilot, from a business you supposedly set up over the past week?

    If that's true good for you, but it seems a little off to me.

    I never meant to upset you at all Winchester. I started working for you to get some income to start my project, (one of many that I was thinking of starting). At first I was going to do a MNS network with a friend, but then I decided that I would be better off sticking with something more assured. Also, this was an expensive project to start, so I wouldn't have been able to start it myself, (hence my bringing it up to you in the first place to see if you would be interested).

    I will not give out links because I never meant to advertise my services in the first place, but I now run a service that is similar to Textbroker, except for the fact that our authors get paid a little bit more. It's a little bit smaller, but the smaller the better in my eyes. I take a % cut off of each article's price, and then pay the authors.

    So far I have seven very happy authors, and I even write if there is too much work for them to do. With that being said, it's rare. I was happy to work as a writer, but frankly it's hard to balance high volumes of work and then small volumes of work at different times. This is a way for me to basically do the same thing, without spending the time to do so.

    And yes, I was attempting to start some sort of large-scale MNS network with you. But sometimes when someone is skeptical of an idea to begin with, you have to take things in to your own hands and do them, or take up another project. Otherwise, you'll never really get the results you're hoping for. I decided that I was tired of trying to find someone who would be interested in partnering with me, and I spent some money off of freelance writing to start my own business.

    Happy clients, happy authors, happy everyone. Hope this clears everything up. Cheers!

    You discuss the business model like it's thriving business, you registered the domain November first, and posted here asking for more authors yesterday. When just the days before you were interested in doing articles for me at less than $1.00 per 500 - seems illogical to me just calling it how I see it.

    Actually, the rate we discussed was $1.50. You asked me to work at $0.75 for a trial basis, and then settled on $1.00. You didn't even have any work after that.

    Why exactly are you targeting me like I did something terribly wrong? I grabbed the bull by the horns and started something that I'm proud of. It's a new business, EVERY business starts somewhere. Just because it's new doesn't mean I can't already have clients. In fact, I've had several happy clients just today, all of which were bulk orders.

    I have no quarrel with any black hat world member. I was simply trying to share my little success story, which is far from complete.

    Dubtube, you have made over 60 posts in like 4 days on Blackhatworld.
    You have bought Donor status on a brand new account.
    You have made a post in the "Hire a Freelancer" section that just basically says "Hiring Everyone".

    Do you really think your actions are not shady?
    Either you think we are all fools, or you yourself are possibly the fool.

    As Winchester said, we calls em like we sees em. If you are simply here to pay for $97.00 to advertise your signature as much as possible by starting odd threads, then as long as they don't break the rules, we can't stop you. But judging by some of your posts and your attitude so far, I want people to be on their guard when it comes to you.

    You want people to be on their guard when it comes to me? What have I done to show that I can't be trusted?

    Excuse me for giving people good service. Also, excuse me for taking initiative and starting MY OWN BUSINESS with MY OWN MONEY that I earned, instead of just scamming people for their money.

    I start fun threads to enlighten black hat world, but guess what? I'm also trying to get my foot in the door anywhere and everywhere that I can. I'm not here just to play around, I'm here to make a living, JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IS.

    The moment that someone makes a complaint about me scamming them or giving them poor service is the moment that you should start trashing me, but not now. If you want to find someone who isn't spending time and money to make money, be my guest, but don't bring this pile of shit towards me. Go troll someone else who isn't actually trying.

    I know exactly how it feels to have someone kicking you in the gut when you're trying to make it, and frankly I'm tired of the feeling. It's happened to me before, and it's not happening to me again.

    Oh, also, I just got a bulk rush order for 50 articles.

    New businesses can thrive if you do it right.

    So you want us to let it get to the point where someone does get scammed and THEN we can all come forward and go "I KNEW something wasn't right about him" ? Sorry, but many of us prefer to get people thinking before anything happens. There are too many people here who get scammed, and the big time scammers usually come in with your same attitude. If you are an honest person, then you have nothing to worry about.

    But you already started a thread which was clearly intended to allow you to bump it infinitely and keep it at the top of the recent posts and lounge section so that you can get maximum eyes on you and your offers. I have counted like 6-7 "bumps" on posts from you in the last few days. Do you not realize that if you need to keep bumping, that the forum probably isn't that interested in discussing your topics?

    This isn't trolling. This is absolutely serious, and if you can't see how serious we are, you need to open your eyes.

    How are you SO SURE that my evil intent is to scam someone? I put actual work in to my content, NOTHING is fishy about it. You aren't getting anyone before anything happens, you're just being a paranoid moron, and NOTHING more.

    So what if I want to start a thread where people can bump it and have fun? There isn't a rule that says I can't do it, and I did it in the lounge, where NO POST COUNT IS GIVEN.

    If I really wanted rep fast or something, I could make some insane contribution. But guess what? I'm not stupid.

    So get off your damn high horse and just relax a little. Give people a chance before you open your can of stupid accusations.

    In all fairness, I can understand why people are suspicous. There have been a LOT of scammers lately.

    In his defense though, I also became a donor before 10 posts...over a year ago. I think maybe he's just eager? Who knows.

    I appreciate your post marusia. That's exactly my point, I AM eager. I don't do anything suspicious, in fact in almost every single internet marketing adventure I pursue, I'll end up performing the service BEFORE getting paid. Things are just so much more simple when you're on the end of being scammed than if you're on the end of supposedly committing a scam.

    Long story short; please don't trash me just yet. Let me prove my worth.

    And I can already see that my judgements about you were correct. Look at you man, I am trying to help people from getting scammed, and you call me a moron? I never said you were a scammer, I told you that you have the exact traits of a scammer, which is 100% true.

    How could contributing something positive to the forum make you stupid? I have no idea what you even mean by that.

    I didn't mean insane as in positive, I mean't insane as in something that anyone could do in a drastic attempt to get rep.

    Not only are you "warning people" to steer clear of me, but since this post I have found myself repped down three times? It's very obvious that you have something against me, you're far beyond "warning people".

    I'm calling you a moron for that very reason. Yeah, I'm irritated. I'm really tired of getting stomped on. If everyone bashed on everyone when they were trying to start their own version of success, then we would have no successful people.

    Transam, since it is a new domain some people are having trouble viewing it. Try deleting your cache or using another browser. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, it shouldn't last too much longer.

    Hm, I haven't seen many of your other threads, but one that did catch my eye is this one:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/370239-one-million-post-thread.html

    I realize it's in the lounge, but it really provides no purpose or value, which is why I think some members are skeptical. I'm not calling you a scammer, as you haven't scammed anyone, but after reading Winchester's post (who is a reputable member here), I can see why there is some concern.

    Based on reading Winchesters first post, things to seem a little..fishy. I've seen this happen quite a few times. Member joins forum, posts a lot, week later is claiming success, gains the trust of people (mainly n00bs), and then pulls a scam and disappears.

    And no offence, I know you may be eager to promote your new business (the article writing one), but take it slow. Starting threads that are so obviously just there to promote your signature doesn't sit well around here. I won't name any names, but there are a few members on the forum who do this regularly, and it's ANNOYING.

    People here don't call out others for no reason, generally speaking. BHW members are fairly tolerant and patient, so chances are, if you have some highly respected members calling you out already, there's probably a good reason for it.

    Just my two cents.

    Long story short; nah. You had your chance to respond in a respectful way. And you blew it. If that is the way you behave, then you are not the type of person that I feel can be trusted.

    I get your points about some of my threads being deemed useless, and I value them. But with that being said, aren't half of the threads in the lounge COMPLETELY USELESS? Is that not the POINT of the lounge to an extent?

    You're right, I'm trying to get my name out there. I'm trying to participate, but I'm not trying to shove my business down peoples throats. That's the last thing I'm trying to do.

    Well then how about this; you don't have to trust me. Go on not doing business with me, it won't hurt me and it won't hurt you. But with that being said I RESPECTFULLY ask you to stop bashing my hard work.
