    Just curious to know, as for the past week i'm not able to access it?
    It's a good database of tips & help, is it closed now due to terry & tom split?

    Looks like that. There were already rumors about it's closing a few weeks ago. Too bad, it was a good forum to sell stuff.

    Ouch! That was something really useful, that was like another BHW, too bad that it's closed? Why should someone close something like that, Hmmmm...
    Atleast the threads & database could be put for public use. Experiments & researches totally buried down.

    It was a good SEO forum. Tom is a selfish guy. He didn't select few moderators to keep this great forum alive.

    Last post that Tom made on that forum was months ago, good job running the forum to the ground.... It was ranking well for "backlinks" and other pretty competitive keywords, how hard can it be to monetize the traffic? Loved the forum when Terry was running it..... Well, it is what it is.

    The only person who is responsible for this mess is Tom! Shooting at the heart of a forum like that, totally amateur!

    An archived database of the BLF just went live on TP, yesterday.

    As far as Tom goes, who knows what happened. All I know is when he started his disappearing act, a number of his sites went down hard, including some of his top money makers. When he first begin his disappearing act, I started tracking these sites and sure enough, they are all DOWN and have been for a while!

    Per Terry and others, Tom has made himself a recluse to the online community that he once was joined to the hip at. Who knows what happened? I don't know Tom on a personal level but have had some exchanges with him and can honestly say, he never seemed like the person who would pull such a scenario.

    As it stands now, there is an archive at TP and no one in the online sector knows where the heck Tom is. If they do, they are tight lipped about it.

    I don't know the story, but I've dealt with some depression issues, and I've completely walked away from my main money site in the past. It was my main source of income. Luckily it was so strong from organic rankings it made money for the next couple years, but I pretty much abandoned it. This was a site making six figures a month. Of course you can say why? or how can you be so stupid. But you can say the same when someone takes their own life, you can't explain somethings that go on in your head.
    I'm sure most here have had motivation problems. Mix that with a bit of depression and it's hard to get anything done.

    Who cares, BHW is ten times better. I am sure Digital Point or Warrior Forum is up and running strong ;)

    I know for sure that Terry sold/backed out of it a while back because I had to switch my banner advertising over to a different paypal account that was Toms (at least I think it was Toms).

    Hopefully it's just down for a little while *fingers crossed*.

    It's sad to see a forum with potential fall.

    that's too bad they split up. It was definitely a good resource
