    Hello,

    I was browsing the internet on twitter and I found a blog post.

    Here is archived page:

    On this blog (which will not be named) there is a banner for child with cancer.

    But when you click the banned you are taken to The Hoth via an affiliate link, why is this?

    What type of marketing is this and how can I learn more about using cancer children to drive clicks?

    Thanks

    I would rather starve than stoop to that kind of sh*t. Why would you even consider copying that bs?. Blackhat does not mean being void of morals and ethics.

    This guy is a big troll . Just look for his other posts, trying to get attention . First he tried to mimic the remove background thread but he failed because the mod locked the thread, now this .

    Is this your website? Are you trying to indirectly promote you website (IN PULP) which is a site about internet marketing and make money online? If so, you actualy used the same method as the "immoral guy with a cancer children banner". :)

    Guys please relax.

    This is not my website, I don't want to copy it.

    I want to know why a scumbag SEO blogger is using the cancer children to get links.

    Who's website is this?

    So you think he's a scumbag, but 33 minutes ago you were interested in "learning more about using cancer children to drive clicks"?
    Hey, I don't care, I'm just going to sit back with my popcorn and let everyone have their way this thread.

    That would be considered a frivolous use of the ban feature; and an abuse of my moderator status.

    Additionally, the peanut gallery would use it as "proof of moderator abuse" on the forum, and subsequently post numerous threads about it.

    The list of negative repercussions goes on.

    Although it is not against the TOS, it should be against your TOS and you should respect that.

    Just checked the OP's post history... thread closed.

    Clearly looking to just annoy another member on this forum without any obvious just cause.
