    Me? $300 for jsp forum gold
    and $50 for useless ebooks from DP.

    how about you?

    20$ for domains which will last for more than 10 months, enough time to earn it back :D

    And I have made around 3K using adsense.

    haha .... I've lost quite a bit, well a couple of hundred gbp

    How? - I go to the cash machine tell it what i want take my card then when i'm in my car i remember i didnt take the money hahaha I always laff when i still do it (though its not that often nowadays)

    Got a fone call from the bank 1 day, I sh*t myself they asked loads of security questions, then told me a customer had been into the bank and had handed my money in... I asked if there was a name and address for the honest customer and they replied yes but its confidential ... I asked the bank to put it into (it was a woman) her account... i'd had a good day that day and it was only £40 ...

    I hate cash

    $3,000 on a bulletproof setup last year, + about 500$ for the massive registration of domains we did.

    But technically that was never a loss, because we made double that a week later.

    Lost...not sure...I've lost a lot of money over the years...but I've made money too. As for the biggest monetary loss...

    I blew about $100,000 on 5 years of college including tuition, books, and room & board completing two degrees, graduated and was promptly offered a job paying the SAME amount of money I was making at the job I had prior to college...which was the fucking reason I went to college in the first place...to make more money and have a better life.

    If that doesn't make you want to scream yourself hoarse in a coat closet...You're a better person than I am.

    That sucks pretty bad.

    I never had that problem, because i was a dropout (average kid trying to hang with the "cool" crowed)

    I make as much as my entire family does combined on a weekly basis, and all i have to do is boot up my laptop for a few hours a day.

    Fuck further education, it gets you nowhere like you proved.

    The entirety of my first year as an internet marketer was a never ending series of colossal failures. I'm guessing around $5k lost that year.

    Present day is whole different story. ;)

    The guy from d2jsp was a major dick. I made a much more low tech bot but also sold it a lot cheaper and it worked great. He got my ebay account suspended and they closed my paypal with it which I had $2K+ in saying I was selling his program. Thats like some rude competition right there.

    The funny thing about the JSP forums is that NO ONE even used the d2jsp bot. They all used MM.bot lol. He made all his money from the d2 nerds buying FG non stop anyways

    Yea I really hate jsp.

    njaguar is a douchebag.

    I was fucking addicted to d2 and jsp...
    Back in the eighth grade, I'd be thinking about uber tristing with my smiter in class, and when I come home I go straight to duels..
    TheN I'd go to the post office and mail $300 to the njaguar douchebag.
    I got my fg, made a gfg bone necro, and I was using g-mod, tmc, and d2loader, and I got BANNED (like last november).

    So much wasted TIME.

    Haha

    Yea I played it a bit when I was in 8th grade. So that would be 9 years ago. After that I saw it as money, I botted and sold items on ebay (early in the expansion pack I got a WF and a couple of GFs which sold for over $1K each :) ). Then after a while I built a auto it bot and sold that with some huge success. Was a fun game but the whole aspect made it so I never really played after I started ebaying. Plus I don't have time to play games these days between IM, the bars, the beach and girls I can't remember the last time I played a video game :(

    Good Call.

    I account for $500 in loss/learning over the course of a year, almost took a bad loss on crapy coaching course, one that was already addressed in the Shit List forum.

    Lost maybe $50 on adwords. Haven't lost anything really major in IM yet. (gained over $3.5K though :) ) Never bought any ebooks or anything, found bhw before I bought anything.
