    hi guys. well i had an idea but it seems like a kinda bad thing to do..

    i noticed on Facebook theres a lot of sad pictures of deformed babies and a person upload a picture asking for help. and i really don't know if its true or not but it managed to get almost 16000 shares. i was wondering if i could do the same and simply ask the user if you want to help. please share and fill out this quick survey. linking to a CPA offer.

    my question is is this allowed with CPA? lead bolt? stronger ads?
    and also is this just too low, as I'm taking advantage of people?

    what are your thoughts? thanks!

    No, you don't - that's cheating, and even worst its against almost moral value, if you do and make some money from it, karma will bite you hard and it will take away your money later or ask for payback. So the earn not worthiest

    There's no such thing as karma, gods, supreme beings, voodoo doctors or any other hokum your tiny, superstitious brain can conjure up. There is no universal arbiter out there watching to make sure that bad guys reap what they sow. This is an important lesson - your superstition is limiting you, cast it aside and you will become a superior human being.

    It's blackhat at it's finest and yes it's not 'ethical', but that's kinda the idea with blackhat. Just cover your tracks.

    hi mate good question.
    Yes it is wrong\bad thing.
    You are definately taking the advantage of people by saying them you will help the babies\donate etc..
    If you say that please help by completing this offer.along with this if you say that 80% of completing your offer will go to helping fund.then you can take 20% .that would be still not bad thing.

    I am usually straight an arrow when it comes to morals and things like that. But, I see all the people around me and many of them are bending the rules, cheating people, fooling people and doing quite well. It kind of makes me wonder about a post I read here a few days back. It said something like

    "The earth is just a fuck%^& rock flying through space and we don't have to be worried about morals, ethics, karma etc...."

    But, depending on how you are brought up, you just can't see the logic in that kind of a statement. I have seen a movie where goons blind children who they then send out to beg on the streets. If you asked me to mail out those CPA offers with those pictures of deformed children, I would probably feel as guilty as those bastards who blind children for money.

    Don't do it man. The world is a better place than that.

    I'm pretty sure this is actually illegal. Talk to someone who knows about these laws before you do it as fraud with charity has some hard punishments.

    About this being legal with StrongerAds..I don't think Greg would want to have anything to do with that kind of promotion. Check with him if you are really going to do it as I am guessing he will chuck you out for sure.

    That's what I would suggest. Give some profit to a charity to clear your conciense.
