    I'm posting this just as a fair warning to anyone considering purchasing this product. I bought the script version of this tool about a year ago and have since lost it. I found the forum and logged in to my account that I created back in the day to recover my license and re-download the script. Well when I pm'd "neek" he tried to upsell me on the desktop version of the script. I declined saying that I just wanted my license for the script again unless he was willing to offer a large discount for the desktop version. A few days went by with me checking for a reply. I tried to login a few days ago to see if he had replied yet and get redirected to a "License not found for your username" page. This is fine as I have no problem with him trying to protect his product. I emailed him to sort this out and have received no responses to any of my emails. I can only assume he is never going to give me my license back even though I provided FULL proof of my payment to him. So this a big fuck you to AutoPligg. I hope people pirate the fuck out of your products and never purchase them again.

    1: Its scenarios like this that I back up all software, the install package, AND a txt file with any license or activation code on multiple computers.

    2: Still the revoking your existing license was messed up.

    Lets face it Earl and crew are a joke. Their most recent software SLP is little more than a scam I mean most parts of the soft have had free alternatives for years. The biggest useful link building aspect of it is the referral spammer which is the dodgiest of all dodgy link building methods.

    Crap software, crap support, crap public image.

    Yeah, I mean AutoPligg is an extremely spammy tool but since I paid for it I figured hey why not snag the license again and see what I can do with it. I will never support any of their products in the future and will even go out of my way to make sure others don't as well.

    Yeah I know what you mean, why shouldn't you have it when you paid good money for it. AP does work, I mean its not as effective as it was but it does post to some pligg sites. If you want to use it I would just get a warez version of it, I know 3.1 is definitely out there and is working, don't know about any newer versions.

    Save your money and buy link farm evolution or something like that. You will be happier unless you want to buy something then all of a sudden not be able to use it.

    I know someone who cracked the latest version.

    I was just going to buy their latest version today, but thanks for the fair warning.

    I haven't found v4 cracked anywhere yet, I have v3.1 but the updates that made are clutch. If your page linking structure is correct then you can do some damage with this tool for sure. If you can upload the new cracked v4.

    The problem with AutoPligg now is that, it's been heavily abused in the past and many of the pliggsite owners are well aware of it and have already taken steps to protect their websites from the bot...

    Agree with that. It essentially works like this, atleast for the older versions :

    - You cant create an account because of captcha or other measures
    - If you do manage to create an account, they have changed around the posting so the app cant handle it
    - If you do manage to make a post. Its probably a. A worthless pligg site that holds 0 weight and will not bring you any benefits at all or b. Your story will get a trillion comments about buying viagra. Or in most cases, both of the above.

    Autopligg certainly (In my mind) isnt worth the price tag. Definitely better pieces of software out there.

    This would be sweet justice if this cracked version works. I just had a situation with Earl/Neek, or whoever they are, this week, where I bought their URL scraper. What a piece of crap. And their service - total crap. Followthrough - total crap. I actually had not planned on trashing them in the open, since they finally refunded my money, but, when I saw this thread - I just could not resist.

    My advice - stay away from Earl Grey and their products.

    Here is the final email conversation I had with them after they finally refunded my purchase:

    *******************************

    You are right. You got exactly 3 complaints from me:

    1. Your page indicates immediate delivery upon purchase. You did not deliver on that in any way, shape or form.
    2. Your product does not work as advertised, necessitating my refund.
    3. You did not process this refund until DAYS after promising the refund to me. And that complaint, which I wrote today, came after waiting for an unacceptable period of time for you to follow through on that promise.

    Now, which of those complaints is NOT valid?

    I find it hard to believe that, with all the negative comments from people on your forum about this product, that I am the only one who had a valid complaint about this sorry excuse for a program.

    All I can say is, this has not been a good experience from start to finish. Like you said - For the best.

    Refund processed.



    I think it's for the best.

    The complaints started within 4 minutes of buying to software so it was expected to come to this conclusion.

    Hello,


    I purchased your URL scraper this morning, and it is telling me you are shipping this product????? Your website indicated immediate delivery, but there was no link to download provided after purchase, and as of yet, have received nothing in regards to a download link via email either. If you can't deliver this now, then you need to refund my money.



    Here are the details on this purchase:
