99.9% of BHW users do not need to worry about this.

I know somebody who told me how (a while ago) he got busted for doing something illegal online and when the feds showed up at his house they had records from all of the forums he was a member of (BHW, DG, WF).

The issue is not that you are using this forum, it is whether or not you are doing something illegal. Most people who come to BHW to talk about SEO should not worry at all about this. It is only people who are here providing nulled scripts, botnet proxies, social media spammers, or other potentially illegal things who need to worry.

I would have no problem using my own name because I don't come to BHW to break US laws. So what is there to fear for me using my own identity?

Guess I should take some extra steps too.

That's a great generalization there sparky.

All lawyers screw people. I'm a lawyer. I must screw people.

How about this - all BHW members who joined in Feb 2012 are douche bags.

The fact is there are good and bad people in any industry, including IM and even the law (gasp!)
Wait until you need a lawyer for something some day, you'll feel differently then. In the mean time, think before you post.

It was a joke. You need to lighten up.

I don't need a lawyer, my dad is one and I do all my own legal work. :p

Doesn't surprise me. They'd be stupid not to monitor these forums.

Thanks for the heads-up bro. It's best not to use your real name when buying/selling services online. I try to avoid using my real name in most cases (I don't believe I'm doing anything illegal, but I don't want to get unnecessary heat for violating sites' ToS). But there's still subpoena risk if you're a big fish and don't do enough to hide your tracks.

To those offering social marketing services - There was a thread the other day in the Jr. VIP section about a BHW seller who got traced by Facebook. They sent him a PM with a hidden embedded image to get his IP address, linked that info to his real Facekook account (although there was no link between his BHW info and his Facebook account) and sent a C&D letter to that email. So be careful.

Just read the thread you talked about. They are getting crafty!

Lawyers are like prostitutes, they both screw you for money.

Hilariously true :D

Good look on op though.... Never realized this site is probably monitored by big corps & feds. Guess im a little naive in my thinking, but I'll remember to be more mindful for future reference.

Of course you know that Matt Cutts also reads posts in this forum, that is why he has such a low self esteem.

I wouldn't worry about that! And the best way to outsmart a lawyer is to think like one! Easy Peasy! :)

You dont really expect them to spend 24/7 on BHW monitoring all the discussions...it is practically impossible...If they were outsourced from phillipines...that might have happened...but since they are US citizen AND lawyers....hard work does not "suit" them ! :)

I hope at least some of you GET what i wanted to say!

peace!
