    Hello BHW,
    Earlier in the year I quit my 9-5 to trade and invest in US stocks. It's been a rocky road, especially with holding shares of COP that I bought before oil prices tanked, but I'm worth more then when I started so w00t.

    I'm hoping to branch into IM for three main reasons.
    1. Now that I've cut the safety net of a paycheck I need to diversify my income sources
    2. With the way the market has been I've been seeing better results with swing and position trading then with true day trading so I've got enough time to knock out articles and mess around with WP
    3. After trading stocks I'm liking the idea of having a sideline with predictable costs.
    I've got a free WP blog that I'm using to get me off my butt and writing articles (err... on my butt writing articles) and am planning to try my hand with a self hosted WP review site to push amazon affiliate links. It will be the same niche as my blog so I can take what I've learned about article writing from my blog and apply it to my review site. I can't be too bad at writing since I got a like on one article and have yet to even mention the blog anywhere.

    Oh and I dabble in python so I'll be posting up the multiprocessing script I use to scrape skanky public proxies. It uses selenium + firefox but I'm sure it could be modified to use something like selenium + phantomJS if you want to keep resource usage down.

    (Why is a blackhat form that discuses adult sites filtering "profanity"? Are there negative SEO implications for the word I prefer over butt or behind?)

    Welcome to BHW buddy. Maybe the profanity filter is because you're new. I think it lets me use profanity. I'll try:

    fuck ass shit tits

    No filter for me :cool:
