    Careful of what you say on this site! Someone from here reported me! hahahahaha. 9 of my 10 accounts got banned. I still have my main (the one I actually sent my W4 or whatever it was called, form). I had like $30-$50 pending on most of those accounts, so yah that sucks.

    But anyway, yah some asshole here reported me. "as so says in my ban notice". Someone actually went out of there way and emailed AC because they were pissed. And whoever did that just made this site a hit spot for AC admins. They said that, "me and my friends" should go get a job. What I find really funny is that they do not IP ban. Hmm, so I must start out at the bottom again. Good thing I have my main at least.

    Edit:

    Actually I'm pretty pissed now, and I think I might throw in the towel to Associated Content and try and find something else.

    Uggh...thats sucks Sil3nt. What did their ban message say? Did they mention BHW specifically? Do you think it had to do with that other thread that you and srb were talking about maybe catching up with you?

    Again, sorry to hear it...let me know if there is anything I can do

    Well BHW is already on AC member's hit list to begin with. I've read a post on AC's forum stating AC need better policies in place because of BHW "scammers", etc. Anyhoo, Sil3nt, how did they find out your information like that?

    well, i don't think it was another bhw member, i think it was just an ac staff lurking around.

    I know they are here. I can smell them. lol.

    Why would another bhw guy report u for? There's nothing he can benefit from.

    Either way, it's a good reminder to everybody not to share certain stuff in public.

    Very true Black, I'm thinking it was either AC staff or someone from their forum. They are very aware of each one of these posts here at BHW. I hope Sil3nt doesn't give up because of it.

    I did a search on that site's forum but found just one lady flamming at BH in general (no mention of BHW). The members are mostly worried at their articles being copied and only less than a handful posts about some members having multiple accounts. (I could be way off here because I just skimmed their forum).

    So, I don't think any member there (or here) has gone up and reported, because if it was a member then definitely he/she would have 'vomited' the 'kill' on the forum... but I did not find anything as such, but again, I could have easily missed such a post). On the other hand, a staff member would only need to report secretly to the bosses. So, it must be their staff member who would have wanted his score up for some reason...

    Only my opinion though, and they must have given a framed-up reason to the OP (after reading his detailed post). Anyway, after so much personal details being exposed, it was obvious that the sniffer hunter dogs would come running... Sorry again, but it was really shocking to see those details in the first place.

    Henceforth, please don't put details about your articles (name, earnings, PVs, etc) here, or for that matter any other forum that could put your account in spotlight. Absolutely no need to broadcast the details (general info would do, but not full details) of what's clicking for you that can expose your account-info to their staff.

    Hope this helps everyone.

    Yah that is the lesson of the day! Actually there are a lot of reasons why someone would report me.

    Yes it is dumb, but that is not what dragged me to being banned. one of the accounts still works and they just paid me through it about $40.

    I won't quit Red, but I will let the tide roll over and lay low for awhile. The AC Admins are afoot...

    or just hide your usernames and use different names in the forums that alone is enough to not some hater do that to you.

    I would imagine AC and pretty much any places that pay people for work online would read up on BHW and any other forums to see how people are "working the system." They would be stupid not to.
