    Is it illegal to message unsolicited emails?

    I looked into it, you need the company, and need an opt out?
    But what if your only sending it once?

    If it's illegal how are you guys not getting sued?

    It is illegal in some countries.
    Though I cannot tell you how it works "globally".

    I was always afraid something like this would be bound to happen. "Xrumer" sounds so underground..

    Russian mafia controls Xrumer. botMASTERlabs is a front. They are the masters of all robots, and when it's time for their CODENAME:Skynet operation to launch, you're going to wish you had a copy of Xrumer, as your unique license ID will be the only thing keeping you safe from destruction. Why do you think Xrumer is the only unhackable software to exist?
    SEO = Skynet's Endgame Operation.

    You've been warned. They know who you are.

    You are wrong on that,Skynet(Google) hates SEO.SEO is a tactical weapon of resistance against the evil tyrant AI skynet .Some proof here http://dejanseo.com.au/fun/google-skynet/

    I'd say yes and no, depends on what you understand by BH. For example there were people sued for fake amazon reviews, this is no secret. I think selling fake reviews can be called Black Hat ...

    Yes OP. Blackhat and SEO are dead since 2009 (R.I.P). My friend was deported to the USA and now lives a miserable life in a 3x3 room ? just for mass spamming Matt Cutts's website. If I were you, I'd quit BHW and all those dangerous marketing forums and come back to WarriorForum.com, that's where the good boys are at.

    I would say legal just immoral. It depends on your definition as some clearly illegal things are considered blackhate like fake leads. But stuff on this forum isn't illegal.
