    Hello fellow members. I was thinking about spinning an ebook from some of the stuff I have saw in here, but, I noticed that a member or two was mad when they saw a method of theirs shared in an ebook in another forum. I wanted to know how do you feel about someone taking what they see here an packaging it into an ebook to sell in another forum. Please note I wouldn't sell the ebook in here just elsewhere.

    P.S. I wanted to make this a poll, but, didnt know how to do it. Your yes or no is important to me so please let me know what you think about this.

    It's kinda low. Use the method to make money instead.

    It's happened before. You don't wanna know what happened to that guy ... really, you don't.

    Ok, ok ... here's the play-by-play:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...msson-sells-stuff-our-forum-other-forums.html

    There have been some others more recently. They're even uglier, but not publicized.

    Here you have this great, FREE resource at your fingertips ... and you're gonna create an STUPID FRICKIN' EBOOK with the FREELY-GIVEN information instead of implementing the methods yourself? Geez, go away soon, please.

    That avatar... it took me almost 10 minutes to realize there was a post in there. ;)

    And no, don't do it. Take your own spin, make it work, test it then release it if you still feel like it. You probably won't because the amount of work and experimentation it takes to come up with a workable method kind of makes if feel like your baby. You wouldn't want someone to steal your baby then sell it to a bunch of retarded monkeys would you?

    I'd much rather give my baby away to a bunch of ... wait. This analogy can't end well for anyone.

    Just don't. This is a place for sharing amongst the clan; it's not really meant to be a PLR site. ;)

    Just DONT do it !!.

    I think its time BHW should go for paid subscription, because of the enormity of valuable information it possesses and some cheap mindsets just cant digest the good stuff provided to them. They will eventually end up breaking the rules !!!

    Will you go sell your mom's jewellery just for the sake of some handful of cash ??? Think again.

    Together let us make BHW a better place to live in.

    If you want to ruin not only your nickname but being hunted and tracked down for your real info, and your real name ruined too. Go for it.

    HaRRo, thanks very much for weighing in here.

    farfetchedmoney, I didn't post that like for your amusement so much as to give you an idea of how highly we regard this forum and the information shared.

    It happens all the time. I don't believe every ebook is original, but rather a 'new' version of different techniques.

    I guess what I am trying to say is a person reads an ebook, implements the idea, and figures out a new twist on that technique. Then they write a new ebook based on their experience. I don't believe they just read an ebook, reword it some, and then sell it. Don't get me wrong that method is sometimes tried, but I don't think anybody is successful long term with that method.

    If you do the latter, I think you will have some real problems. Like being tracked down.

    My advice: Don't do it.

    Don't do it man. It's just an unwritten universal law of things. Your gut should tell ya the answer.

    Take some methods and spin them a little to make them your own, then do like the rest of the so called guru's and slap a salespage up with a $47 ticket. You'd feel much better then sniping the raw method and trying to claim it as your own.

    I know it's BHW, but there's still that unwritten code among us, at least that's how I feel anyways.

    Would you mind if someone took your ideas, that you offered to others for free, put their name on it and then sold your idea as theirs?

    Obviously your not that person because you asked beforehand.

    Better to take some info, actually put it into use, put your own slant on it, actually make some money, build some cred, then write about it.

    True. Guilty as charged. :)

    And I have to disagree with you: we are perfect. Warts and all there's no place on the entire internet I'd rather spend my time than here.

    Well... except for 2-3 minutes a day. ;)

    If someone gives you good and useful info for free one should respect it, give a thanks in proper order and either use the technique to make money or move on. It's not fair play to take others posts to make an Ebook. If the writer of the content wanted to make money on the info he/she would have made an Ebook for selling the info in the first place.

    Let me put it another way (Fictional of course)

    If your mum or sister was a hoe and you told your friends about it, then found out a couple of days later they were pimping her out and keeping the profits - would you be happy or stand for this? LOL!

    SHORT & SIMPLE - NO you told them in good faith!Haha!


    Come up with your own method, make money with it, then maybe sell it on, then share it for free maybe.
