    Just want to start conversation. So is it blackhat or black hat ? Also if possible if anyone could provide where or how the word was created that would be great.

    Either is correct. In the English language, the proper form would be
    Black Hat, but on forums, it is often spelled as one word, "Blackhat".

    I love the Blackhat version more, especially BlackHatWorld.
