    Is there a possibility that Google employees could be coming to BHW and using any methods or using people's posts to help with their next update?

    And are there any laws against that?

    Yes it is illegal and if they are caught doing it, they face 27 lashings.

    There's always a possibility of one of us being a double agent for Google. For all you know, one of the oldest members here has been working for Google this entire time and reporting all of our activity. Then again, I'm certain most of the black hat members here would be penalised right away if that were true.

    Ask yourself what would you do if you were in their position. Consider all factors, e.g. the technology you have at hand.

    It's a proven fact that they come here and at least read posts. It's an easy way for them to get an inside scoop.

    I think that they are here 24x7. I also think that they are actually learning and not spying... :) I also remember someone called Matt Cutts is a member here!

    It's not illegal to see the methods we willingly share to game their system. We're basically robbing their bank & screaming "come get me."

    How would it be illegal if literally every single person on the planet is allowed to read BHW threads? Where is the biggest community of people trying to fuck them? Yup, right here. BHW is probably the biggest factor in creating their updates

    I remember reading somewhere that you can ban someone or a company from visiting your site and if they come on it there are serious consequences. Could be fake though.
