    I don't know... this just hits me every time I see it.

    So... you figure out how to make some money with some method... on Day 1 you make $15, on Day 2 you make $100....
    You come to either here or WF and we see these posts that say, "[METHOD] How to Make $100/day Easily"

    Can we please have some integrity and actually run your method for maybe two weeks before you start claiming it's a $100+ per day method. I've seen so many threads that just make these crazy claims... do this this and this, and BOOM four figure days!

    Sorry for the rant, could be the Blue label, could be that I'm just tired wasting time with bad thread titles.

    -------------------------------------

    To ensure that I'm not rocked with bad rep for my rant let me just say that most of these methods have gold in them and I appreciate them as much as any other member does, it's just the "per day" that kills me.

    Idiotic, indeed.
    Unfortunately, more and more idiots are around each day.

    Give plasma twice a week and give a little jiz once a week. You get to help people and get a happy ending all at the same time. How could you beat that!!!

    remember, if you ever do make something idiot proof - they will just build a bigger and better idiot.

    I agree 100%. Just because someone makes 100 Dollars in a day does not mean it is a 100 dollar a day
    solid method. So really it is a waste of server space.

    If there's nothing of value in the thread then I totally agree with you.

    However, if someone outlines a legitimate method with it then I don't see a problem with it.

    That said there are some real shockers which attempt to do this really vaguely which is essentially of no value and does annoy me when I see 100's of noobs thanking them for their method which is "write a blog post, scrapebox it and do this 1,000 times"

    But yeah, I guess it's another job for mods to do (but no doubt they are busier with more important things) or just let the threads die but half the time they get noobs posting replies just to increase their post count (I also think this thread should be in the lounge).

    That's just my 4 cents though.

    Also, If the op of the thread makes $100 a day, he might have experience/skills in tat area that others do not have.

    Also, who cares what the titles say, its not like your buying an ebook with false claims.

    HA HA!

    Im guessing that includes my thread then LOL!

    Only reason for that title is that's the goal and it's a live case study showing how im getting there! People who are following it can easily see that BUT for the outsiders it probably looks how you describe it.

    But on the other hand if i chose a title like.... [METHOD!] How I'm Building My Business & Making $0 A Day!

    I don't think many people would open it right? plus once it reaches $100+ per day then im gonna have to make a new thread because the title needs to be changed and so does the content!

    Lewis :p

    What I never understand is why put "100/day or 10/day" It's not like you're marketing something and your thread will get viewed even if it just says [Method]. Mods should make it against the rules to make such claims.

    Scaled up version:

    1. Go to the bank with a gun
    2. Show it to the teller and tell them to give you all the money
    3. Take the money and go to a safehouse as soon as possible
    4. Wait until it blows over and go home with your cash

    I've had a 100% conversion rate with this method! You could make $5000 per day, easily!

    Well you can make 5000 $ during that day. You can't make 5k everyday since your new home will be the JAIL :)

    I agree, too many people sharing wack methods. I understand you are trying to help or what ever but make sure the method is solid before you start sharing it :)
