    I got a infraction from selling outside BST (which was mildly unfair) a while back.
    I am running a SEO company that is leading my local market and I want to introduce my services to BHW, but I'm afraid that this infraction thing may prevent me from doing so.

    The infraction is worth 0 points and has no expiration date.

    For this service to be live to BHW I would have to invest a large sum of money to make everything perfect and I wouldn't want to spend that kind of money just for the BST thread not to get approved.

    If anyone can make this clear, I would appreciate.

    I hope I can still open a BST, since this service is crazy hot within my niche, and I'm sure the whole community will benefit from it :)

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Kindly explain how that is unfair if you were selling outside of BST.

    The thread was deleted now and it was a few months ago. Anyway, it was a JV thread in which I was looking for partners to start a Blog Network.

    It was right after the death of all those public blog networks with high PR. I'm a programmer myself, so I offered to code a platform for all JV members and in exchange they would invest $XX in the network for us to buy several hosting accounts (to keep IPs unique) and High PR domains.

    I wasn't getting any profit from it, just huge headaches from managing a large network (trust me, when you have 30+ different hosting accounts to manage with loads of domains, every day is a bad day).

    That was seen as a sales thread (maybe I exagerated my "sales" pitch), but it wasn't one, and I guess the infraction was just a warning, since it was worth 0 points.

    Anyway, I learned from my mistake and the point of this thread wasn't questioning the infraction, but simply asking whether it would be possible for me to sell here an actually successful product.
