I've been a user of the site since last year. trying out some of the methods learned here, I managed to scrape together some extra cash, which was very appreciated. I plan on staying a member here as long as I'm able. Since then, I've been investing my time elsewhere, but have come back to this site, and frequently while researching some of the newer methods that I've managed to find to build a steady income I end up here again, this place is literally related to or commented on in other places and other places I frequent commented about here . This site caught my attention but not enough for me to come back and review the site, I spent several months in a posting on this site and I found a skills using well proven skills using the skills your you have using those on AC and other sites.. If I wasn't afraid that others would garner my income by being reminded of sites, I'd suggest more than AC and Elance but that's all the hint you're getting from me and that's more of a wave in the general direction as I pass you by in the hallways in this forum . You could and if you don't have the knowledge as well as intelligence you're not going to beat me at making money with the net. Again, I make more than a part time job that would be 4 hours a day, 5 days a week at a pay rate of 7.00 per hour by working as much as I can every damned day and I just picked up a 9-5 job too. My Internet connection pays for itself and this is a competitive game. I don't want -- to piss of the site administrators with bitching or look through all the posts anymore, because what I sometimes find, well it turns me off and so might some of the stuff you seen here, whether it's ethically angering or intimidating. You need to change your mode of thought to making cash and using what's here and ignoring what you don't like that's here, not commenting or insulting people in regards to it. To use persons that need what you can provide to gain money from those people. 110% are profiting from using you too is what income in economies is about for the most part. I wish you the best ... as friendly persons here and elsewhere helped me with only encouragement until I'd made my own way, now I can challenge them to help me out with cash for my work. =) This site is has some methods I use, methods which are good and needed if you sit there to chat or post to forums then you're building and probably already have a decent typing rate in words per minute and experience with writing and what's correct and what's not. Use these skills you have and write, that's what's worked for me - I fit into the phreak/hacker scene because of my immense knowledge of subjects back in the 90s days of 2600 but never cut it coding or reversing, so... writing is for me and sometimes other tasks that don't involve memorizing whole programming languages.. I'm not a script kiddy though use tools and can develop my oen if need be but that's another topic.. Do as I did and read all you can and try freelancing as much as you can and come back here, hell even search for topics and add black hat world to your google searches, you might be pleased with the results.
