    Hi

    After a couple of years following the 'gurus' I've reached a decision - I'm never going to buy any of those crap ebooks again!

    There's no secret to making money on the internet, as I suspect most of you know. Or, if you don't know, just search this forum and you'll see that all the 'stupid frikkin' ebooks' all tell the same tale, just in a different form.

    So I'm happy to start contributing to this forum and providing downloads of the latest 'guru' release, where I can (and where no-one else hasn't already done so), so newbies won't waste their money.

    That's not to say there isn't some useful software out there - occasionally someone comes up with something really good. But ebooks? Give me a break!

    Thanks to everyone here for breaking the mold and enlightening others, as well as saving them from making the same mistakes I have.

    I disagree with you (but respect your opinion).

    Yes many (I should say most) ebooks offers are junk.

    But some of them are well researched and do provide quality info. IMO, these people deserve to be paid for that.

    We can't only blame ebook Publishers for providing junk, customers should be less naive and do more due diligence before buying.

    I will continue to pay for quality and yes I get burn sometimes, but that's business life.

    Absolutely right. I wrote a book full of useful stuff that I'd found useful in my research into how hackers crack download links, and how to protect your own download links. To date I've sold over a 100 copies and I'm just about to bring out version 2.

    Voxclan, sorry but it was a generalisation! What I'm really pissed off about are the so-called 'gurus' that reiterate the same junk over and over again. I DO have respect for the little guy who's put together a step-by-step method that actually does work.

    Zomby, yeah it might seem slow but I've seen people who've been buying this stuff for five years and they still haven't worked it out!

    I hear ya. I was a guru addict at first, but this place really turned things around for me. I suppose I was like every one else and got download happy at first but then I realised the REAL value was the information contained within this forum itself.

    That's it, exactly! Here you can download till your hard drive is stuffed and then, and only then, do you realise that this 'guru' stuff is all the same.

    I think most people become download addicts. The gurus thrive on knowing that all they have to do is release their latest 'I made a million dollars overnight' product and there will be a flood of no-hopers rushing to buy it. Then... they do nothing with it but wait until the next 'cash sucking machine' comes along.
