The more I read and learn here, the more often I take notice of people using black hat strategies and general marketing in order to make sales, or build up lists and the like. I've been using the internet for years and years, so I was already more or less immune to most of the tricks, but it's a bit interesting to know why they use certain tactics and how it affects people. Also, I'm at the point to where I can barely stomach reading stuff like that, even if what they're selling or offering is worth the price. Does anyone else feel the same way about that? Another thing that has bothered me a bit is the marketplace on here. A lot of the sellers employ the same exact marketing strategies you can find being outlined in a thread a few clicks away. Are they just doing it for practice or what? Discussion on how learning BH tactics have changed your views on things - Go!
