Hi everyone, I don't remember how I exactly stumbled across this wonderful forum, but I've been having fun reading posts. I have previoiusly gotten my feet wet with affiliate marketing, in particular article marketing and adwords, and made a few bucks, nothing big. I also tried to come up with creative ways to use popular sites, like craigslist, flickr, wikipedia, etc. Then, I realized much smarter people had come up with much smarter ways to take advantage of "the system". I love the creativity and thinking behind black hat methods. I will probably not use any midnight-heart-of-darkness-black methods, but I find them useful as inspiration for my own grayish attempts. I hope to learn and contribute in the future! Thanks all!
