    Hello, I know I'm newer here but I love this forum and have learned so much here and wanted to pass this along. I just ran across this shit while looking for domains and sites at DP. Someone who goes by topnotchcomedy is trying to start their own paid BH forum and is trying to recruit members. I haven't checked it out (thin on cash) but thought maybe some of you longtimers or mods might want to give it a peek to see if he's passing any of your stuff off to make a buck, which isn't cool if he is. Here is his recruiting spill:
    Hey Digital Point,
    As an active member I'm here promoting a website of mine that I'm sure a few people here would be interested in.
    My site:

    BlackHatters[dot]Org

    For the last few months myself and a few other experienced internet marketers have compiled our resources into this membership site. We're always putting new stuff on there:

    BlackHat and WhiteHat stuff - we've done very well in both in the past.
    **Review Copies already sent out**
    ***However - for $15 and your signature link for two months I'll give you a lifetime membership***

    Hope to see the rest of you inside.

    Just thought I would pass this along to my BHW brothers (and sisters :D). Mods forgive me if I posted in the wrong area just wanted to share this and wasn't sure where to put it.

    I’m naïve but I don’t care, and you should be to, I don’t see how he could be ripping us off, unless you own this forum and you are the one trying to recruit members, I am naïve and that could be forgive, but something seems fishy. This doesn’t raise one bit of red flag, because there are a lot of black hat forums, why aren’t they posted here, but you have this new forum, WF, SYNDK8, etc. It seems fishy to me, but being naïve isn’t a crime.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Markus

    No not me at all. I just remember reading some posts a while back where people were selling stuff from here and taking credit for it. Like romeo had a prob and needed the money. Just thought I would give a heads up. I respect this forum and appreciate it what it offers, that is why I joined. I actually use the same screen name at DP and check the profile email there and have a mod check it here, then...you can do a whois domain check I own quite a few, so shouldn't be hard to find me on those. And to be blunt but not disrespectfull..... I could give a shit about your fishyness.

    Well, either that is a sale pitch in a sneaky way, or you are pointing out a site aimed at newbies with it's low cost.

    Caretaker, exactly my point, whether or not this is his, the design is horrible, the service isn’t even specific, have you joined this site to see if BHW stuff is being sold? I probably don’t think anything is being sold, because this seems so spammy. You can blunt all you like, but this post was not useful in anyway. There are hundreds if not thousands if not millions of sites that claim this same thing, I can pull up many. This is distracting the newbie’s, because everything this site is offering can be found here, without the price. They are not true black hatters; BH’s don’t charge fees to help each other. I am entitled and right to be naïve in this case, because a lot of members were scammed and crossed here. Low cost stuff tend to be scams, life isn’t cheap or free. We have members with 100+ posts who betray other members, so if that can happen, why should possible scams be allowed by members with 100 – posts (including me). I am naïve, and if I’m wrong, then I’m wrong, but this is what I think. By the way, meaningless swearing will only make you look less wise and more open to fishy accusations. Don’t you think members here know about the old have you seen this…?

    Sincerely Yours,
    Markus

    It is not really a fishy site or anything; I have checked it out and traded messages with the owner of it.

    Mostly a place to get some techniques and methods; some u may have, and others may be modifications of things already tested in the past. They have a pretty large amount of information and threads about v*i*d*eo mrktng.....

    In summary: another BH forum, that will b helpful to some people.
