Is there any value on the advice of some posters that were banned?

    Okay, been reading threads again today and I've been fascinated with Banned accounts. Some are scammers but some actually gave good advice on Niches, Adsense, PPC, CPA, Ebay Dropshipping ,anti-viruses and back-ups. They have been here about 2-3 years and gave great guides but was Banned for some reason or another.

    I like to see the good in people (and remind myself that I'm not perfect either) but am I being naive in trusting their word?

    Should I avoid them like the plague or take them on because even though they have self serving intentions, there is truth on what they say.:confused:

    I believe some of them didn't lie all the time or just into breaking the law/rules.
    So, could be still useful. Take it with a pinch of salt, though.

    Not everyone is banned for scamming people. My bans are always for trolling or abuse and all from the lounge.

    ^What that said. But what do you mean your bans?

    OP, There are people here who aren't banned who are dicks too, being banned isn't the guide you need. Consider the info, then decide if it's solid. I too have seen great posts from banned users, they aren't necessarily dicks just because they're banned from here. All you need is the info anyway.

    Why does it feel like I haven't seen a Duffers post in a long time?

    I wish more people would get banned, fucking love it when I see somebodies username turn RED


    Yeah, he keeps a low profile these days, pops in once a week, leaves a witty comment then scarpers.

    Duffers, where is the love Man?
