    Lol I as bored so I went onto WayBackMachine.org and seen BHW's 1st crawled page way back in 2006... If you want to have a look you can see it here:
    Code:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20060503191730/http://www.blackhatworld.com/
    :).

    P.S I wonder if email and url scrapers and forum scrapers use these archives from the WayBackMachine to get links etc? I presume there would be an inbuilt feature to prevent this because most of these links and email addresses etc would most likely be dead...

    In the beginning the great black hatters uttered these words





    Isnt this what we all came here and gathered for? To further our knowledge? Sometimes in all these threads we write, we forget why we are here...

    When I first joined I looked at some pretty early posts and it looked like some filler done by Harro and Dave to get some keywords stuffed into google. I guess the technique worked because he we are 6 years later and a Black hat forum sitting at around 500 alexa rank. Got to be happy with that!

    Lol just realised the "slight" error... But imagine how elite blackhatting would be if it started way back then? I know that it ould have been easier to spam the search engines back then...

    I think BHW started in 06 not 96 because I read for a while before I ever registered; the only reason I ever did was I finally wanted to get something and the thread was viewable only by registered members. I was a total BH noob so didn't have anything to contribute so I just read and was over at snydk8 too.

    You're probably right :)

    I really have no interest in the JR VIP forum but will most likely go donor just to throw some cash BHWs way sometime soon.
