    Great post, hopefully everyone else is reading this on the way in.

    I definatly get get the frustration at people who cannot do a basic Google or forum search asking for Information spoon fed which has already been discussed ad infinitum. I think our basic asset as a group here, and what will give us the competitive edge to make a lot of money in this world is our ability to discover, absorb, and synergize new information. It's all out there somewhere or another on the Internet, it's a matter of finding the right stuff, sifting out the crap, and then applying it in the real world.

    I don't think we should be discouraging of newbies posting as a general rule however. Especially not with the introduction and newbie sections. For a lot of new people starting out in their journey, it helps with their own personal accountability to put their intent out there to someone else. Otherwise, many are working in social isolation and may not have similarly minded people to serve as motivation and confirmation that success is possible.

    Thanks for for the post!

    Hello, I get the "spam triggered" message almost every time I try to post something. It's a bit frustrating because I really want to post a reply and not spam or anything - I'm not here for that and if I wanted there would be tons of ways to do it - and everytime my post triggers the spam filter and no matter how I edit my post it doesn't get through.

    I am trying to post a reply on one of reinstecker's methods thread suggesting some plugins that I use that could benefit anyone trying this method ( of course not promoting anything since they're not even mine or affiliated with me and I have found them the "hard" way by trial & error while setting up the blogs over the course of the last weeks ) but I just can't get it through.

    I understand that this is for keeping scammers/spammers/whoever away ( and I think it's mandatory in a forum with such high traffic ) but it's frustrating for anyone wanting to actually reply with something useful to a thread.

    There are tons and tons of threads where only "send me the pdf" and "I would like a review" replies are all over the place for tons of pages through each thread, yet I get triggered for a post that could actually be useful to a few.

    I'm not going to spam to get over the 15 post limit or loosen the restrictions on my account or something else, I think it's lame.

    Thanks for reading!

    I have a new account here. I am not new to im.. I have been reading this forum for years and it always floored me how rude people are to new folks so I have never bothered creating another account. (don't have access to original email I had with first account) That being said I am wondering if there Is a post count (max per day) etc for new accounts on this board? Or any other reason post replies don't raise count. **disregard i found the answer I was looking for on another thread. I would delete this but I don't see how....

    hi!

    1) is there possible to delete your post or thread, as I don't see such a button?))
    2) is there any kind of escrow service on BHW for safe buying from its members?

    1) You can only delete or edit if no one has posted after you.
    2) BHW doesn't provide escrow, but there are escrow services available around the interwebs.
