    Am I the only one who is pissed off by members that always post comments like "great design, good luck with your sales" in every f*ing bst thread?
    Funny enough, seems to me that the members doing it often end up beeing scammers. I wonder even if some of them aren't the same person.
    I'm not sayin i make useful posts, in fact I don't, but I don't understand why it's allowed to write such useless posts to have higher posts counts

    Yeah it has been mentioned a few times.

    It can be a little annoying but it doesn't bother me too much at the moment.

    Some people are naturally gracious.

    I thought they were doing it because they were helping the person by giving his/her thread a bump. I agree though, it is irritating.

    Naturally gracious but use "rep" earned from high post count to sell services to members

    It's all about advertising their own banner in someone elses sales thread.

    Like someone said the other day, you really think they would be saying 'Best luck with your sales' all the time if all banners were banned from BST threads :)

    Same thing one member posted some days back & a reasonable view from another member was that it is to promote his/her services with a big signature right below his post to get some extra publicity.

    Reasons can be many and not necessarily negative. So give it a miss and carry on .

    Yes, I agree with that to an extent but that is why we all need to call out the BS when we see it.
    The people that get taken in by a high post count tend to be newer members that's why we should all do our bit to protect them.

    I'd love to see banners from the members that were not selling in the actual BST threads deleted and that includes mine. That being said, I will pop into a sales thread of someone that I know who is offering something of quality and wish them well. I would be very happy if my banner was not to show but I don't believe I have any control over that.

    I'll continue to pop in to the threads of those that offer something of value and make a positive comment though as I think it is respectful of the quality seller and allows the community to see that others recognize an ethical businessperson offering a quality product at a fair price.

    And it has ZERO to do with advertising my products or services... ZERO.

    Not really aimed at you Greg, but i think everyone knows the 'usual suspects' that write the exact same thing on every sales thread within minutes of the BST being opened.

    how hard is it if they post in a sales thread GOOD LUCK
    to un check - show sig - the fact they dont shows there intention
    put simple sellers shouldnt be allowed to do that in others sales
    threads.

    There have been a few sales threads that have been highlighted to me, through someone posting a "good luck" and the thread gets bumped, and its only then i actually come across it, so i don't mind. Plus i always checkout peoples sigs that interest me.
    I can use my own free will to decide if an advert, sig, or post is relevant to me or not, and i require no bureaucratic implementations to "protect" my decision making.

    It does what it says on the tin "blackhatworld - the home of internet marketing"

    please note my signature below, I endorse those campaign messages. I also wear no branded clothes, so i can speak as an authority on the matter. Except for puma trainers, which have a cat on them. I am a panther which is a kind of cat, hence i am marketing to myself for pleasure.

    These threads that like to bitch and moan about members who don't provide quality comments are getting older than the worthless members who post the useless comments in the first place. If any of you are dumb enough to get scammed by these brainless fucktards who post their useless comments on this forum...then it is you who are the stupid ones.

    It is not very hard to discern a quality poster with knowledge to share and a service to offer...from a douche-bag who posts silly nonsense to get his post count up. There are low post members here who know their shit...and thousand post people who still post journey threads that don't produce enough jack to feed their pets...let alone their families.
