    This is your captain speaking and I come with a suggestion.

    As we all now, the cookie stuffing section is closed for people who don't have over X number of posts mostly to avoid AM's from seeing what are the new blackhat trends to stuff cookies.

    I've had a couple of questions, related to CPA methods, that I've wanted to discuss for a while but I hesitate to do so because I believe that it may also be important to close the CPA section to people who don't have X number of posts just like the CS section. This is because it is just as easy to get banned for using blackhat CPA methods as it is using CS techniques.. depending on the network of course, some networks like Ads4Dough don't mind.

    So here is a poll to see if you fellow blackhatters think it would be prudent to close the CPA section for people with less than 50 posts OR open a new section to discuss sensible subjects.

    Cheers

    I would feel more safe to see it restricted and would probably be willing to share more. I'm pretty sure some guys feel the same and that's why this section isn't as awesome as it could be.

    I voted yes, I know I am a long way away from JR. VIP, but I think the information should be closely guarded, that way it will be worth way more in the long run.

    Good point. But as the Cookie stuffing area is open after 50 posts should this be the same - i.e 50 posts. Or, should Cookie stuffing be Jr VIP only?

    As it's becoming harder to amass post count without contributing - rather than just posting 'Thanks' all the time - I would have thought that a post count of 50 isn't unreasonable.

    safe to assume (or at least should def be assumed) that we are being watched by acct managers, owners, friends, associates, and even just people with loose tongues on this forum and others that have an interest in their business when the business is reliant on others as part of its success.

    Not just in this section and CS but in all sections of this forum. Remember this is where people come to discuss ways to relieve these guys of their money (I thought extort was too harsh a word for it)

    CPA account manager and network owners will always be in forums such as this. So seriously, there will never be anything that one can do to keep them out. In my personal opinion, for every CPA account manager/network owner that Essential Clix knows of in BHW, there would be at least another handful that goes around here unknown to us all. Heh for all you know I could be one. So anyway, if imposing a post count is for the sake of keeping them out, then it is not going to work for sure.

    General rule of thumb:

    If you're not sure if it's safe to discuss something--DON'T.

    At the very least, ask some of the more knowledgable people here via IM or PM. The Jr. and Ex. VIPs here are pretty cool about sharing their knowledge where it will help.

    Good idea, but it's a little too late.

    Yeah, that's definitely true. We would almost be better off just moving it to Jr VIP.

    Can it be safe at Jr VIP? If yes, I wouldn't mind moving there even if I am not a Jr VIP, as the lack of exposure is definitely beneficial in the long run.

    But is BHW able to protect AM's from getting the Jr VIP status? Is there a manual review of those members?

    Regards,

    SH

    One of those CPA account managers often shares some useful info in the CPA section. I think it's actually good to have them in there, as long as they offer up honest information.

    And, I would guess that there's no way of identifying one unless he 'comes out' so you don't know who's who anyway...
