Got drunk and ruined my BHW Rep -- do not do what I did!

    So I got drunk last night and posted this little gem:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-remain-great-i-said-google-piss-off-i-r.html [EDIT: The mods have deleted my offending post]

    Not only was it ignorant, but it was extremely rude to a fellow BHW member who is working through his challenges and trying to do what we are all trying to do -- make money and get by in this world.

    People, don't be like me for a cheap laugh at someone else's expense. It's not funny and it's not cute and it does not contribute one bit to the good community we have here.

    I woke up with a well-deserved hangover and a reputation as icy as my poor attitude.

    I PM'd the OP and apologized. Truly sorry to everyone around here!

    I rose your reputation from -2 to 0, I'd appreciate it if you control yourself when you are not sober next time as consequences still come whether you are aware of what you did or not, and it may be too late to fix it. if you have problems controlling yourself or need to build on it, I would recommend not posting anything until you are back to normal.

    Not everyone lives in America and is fortunate enough to be able to speak fluent English. In fact, only about 15% of the members here are American so next time, instead of mocking them please congratulate them and encourage their willingness to learn other languages and become international citizens.

    I am willing to forgive you, but I have no control over what other's will decide so don't feel bad if you aren't forgiven by everybody here.

    Those that won't forgive you now, will when you show them that you are working on fixing the issues you have now.

    Thanks for admitting your mistake. Not everyone would do that.

    I hope you have learned that drinking and forum posting don't mix.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    dude is just fucking rep man, i used to have -11 rep and dudes just to think am some sort of troll or some dumbass for having such bad rep, the point is there are too many haters out here and like to gang bang you on the rep. But ultimately if you just keep shit to yourself, like arguing comments and insulting comments you should be fine.

    I have nothing but respect for you.

    It is not easy to admit you are wrong publicly. Use this as a learning experience and turn over a new leaf.

    Better than doing the out of hand drunken stuff in real life. I don't see the big deal about some points on a forum though. Isn't positive and negative the whole reason for points? So what if you have a negative, its a computer forum, not everyone has the same opinion.

    Yeah, it looks like the mods removed my offending content. (I made fun of another member's poor English in a pretty tasteless way)

    I appreciate the positive response I got from everyone. I will be making POSITIVE contributions only on here from now on.

    Everyone let's keep it black hat out there but play nice with each other in here :)

    Well i'm glad to see someone realizing their mistakes. I am newer to this forum but as of lately, its 1 negative comment after another. Its pretty sad. "Reputable" members here bashing people for posting a [method]. Being harsh just because they don't think it will work.. Grow up. Open your mind and you can learn from ANYTHING!! Sorry, had to rant, But glad you apologized!

    We all make mistakes. I'm sure some people on BHW have made far bigger than that. Learn from it.

    Wow. This is the most important thing I learned from this thread. That's amazing. An international marketing think tank! I cherish my membership like a treasure.

    Your rep is 55 on my screen? I guess it is restored?

    Practice more empathy, my friend. Getting drunk is a weak excuse.

    Patched skin is NOT the same as smooth skin. :)

    But at least you admit your mistake. That's a rare quality in today's world.

    LOL i gonna post a thread

    "
    [METHOD] Raise your rep in 24 hours!

    This will work in 24hours.

    Step one) Insults somebody on any random thread, make it real tasteless.

    Step Two) Come back 24hours later and create a thread apoligzing and blame it on being drunk. This will bring your at least +50 REP.

    If this thread helped you hit the thanks and rep button. thanks.

    Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.-Steve jobs.
    You admitted, so carry on with your other innovations.cheers!
