Hello. I suggest that the links in posts be either removed completely or be hidden in such a way so that they dont count as backlinks. I know that the code tags exists and are used, but they are often violated. The reason why I say so is that a couple of days ago, some of my staffers from dp had their service threads listed here. While it's obviously not a problem for me, but those guys did come and tell me about the fact that their services are listed here. It matters in 3 ways. 1.) Those guys are service providers and get what they are worth on dp. The thing is, this goes to their head. "I got listed on a blackhat seo forum. i think i deserve a raise and also, I hope those guys dont scam me". I dont underpay my staff and I really dunno how you can scam someone like that but whatever. I think my point was taken. 2.) The insults and all that follows is hard to explain. For instance, i told one of my staffers that bhw is a great place. The reply I got was "Nah...blackhat marketing is for losers. They cant do shit with whitehat and thus look for a way to cheat people". While I do know that the guy has absolutely no idea about what blackhat actually means, it still is pretty ridiculously infuriating to defend a family you belong to, especially when the offender is essentially someone with the attention span of a humming bird and the IQ of a rabid mongoose. 3.) Owing to the fact that the population of bhw is increasing everyday with noobs, this is just another way of inviting them over. For those of you might believe that anyone who has the brains to check the backlinks of his/her thread is not that big a newbie, trust me..i deal with them and they truly are the definition of a newbie. They are only good in what they do...ask them for a slightly different task, and they go blank. The thread here in which there links were posted was essentially about getting good quality service providers from dp and selling the service elsewhere at higher prices and was posted in the money making section. Please feel free to correct me if you think I am wrong but to be honest, the very thought of those guys entering bhw and thus calling themselves 'blackhatters' feels disgusting and scary at the same time. I have nothing against them, no personal vendetta, but I know their skill set and I also know it for a fact that they dont want to expand it. I tried teaching them new methods but they refused to acknowledge the viability of things like ewhoring, affiliate marketing, CPA's and CPL's.. I hope something can be done about the same. regards P.S. I will not be taking any names of the service providers from dp. So please do not bother asking about the guys. If the mods need to know in particular, they can obviously do so. P.P.S. To the mods, if this thread is inappropriate in any way whatsoever, please do delete it.
