    I recently got an unsolicited email from a rival forum, blackhat n*i*n*j*a*s. How could they have got my personal email? It must have been scraped out of the forum pms somehow cause that is the only place I would have put it.

    I think a security review is in order as that rival forum is targeting bhw pretty hard right now. They have already taken software from here, stolen one of the mods and now this email thing.

    I really wish bhw would consider going underground as it would cut down on all this crap going on lately.

    they're just too small to cause any competition to bhw, they are trying things like this one (targeting members of bhw to join their forum), DDOS-ing bhw, posting infected softwares here, making a mod from a freshly joined member on their forum who's an ex-trainee mod of bhw, who scammed a good amount of people here and banned people just for his own selfish reason and they let him selling his services there

    what do you think how far they'll go if these kind of people constitute their staff?!
