Is this really a "blackhat" marketing site site?

    It seems like this site likes to ban the talk of several industries due to possible flaming wars that could break out. 2 of the largest "banned" industries are $4.2 billion and at least$8.5 billion in size in just the united States alone,since they are very closely related you could group them together for a total size of at least $12.7 billion. Which is around 20% larger then the cinema industry in the United States. It seems like there should be a special section for that combined industry,since more of it is going online.

    Why would you care? It seems to me you are living permanently in the Lounge and ignore all other sections anyway :D Don 't tell me you 're trolling? :)

    12.7 billion seems quite a pessimistic estimate; it might be muchhh bigger than that!

    @seoguru13
    I did some more research and found that in one of the markets within the industry, around $11 billion is spent on tuition on first and secondary education alone in the United States.

    @silversultan

    That if the economics of it were actually looked at by mods,and admins then maybe these industries might be allowed in a special section,but only for monetizing talk,not debating personal views.

    Schools are really complicated to start and its hard to turn a profit with them,but the fact that parents are spending a combined $11 billion on tutition is proof its a huge industry,when they could just send their kids to public schools.

    I'm not understanding why politics or religion would need a sub forum to focus solely on them. No other niche has their own. At the end of the day, you'd develop and monetize those sites the same way you would any other.

    1. To keep possible flame wars isolated to one section. But I don't think there will be many flame wars if it was a money making section,compared to lounge which is almost anything goes section. And there is still the report button if things get out of hand.
    2. Both of them alone are larger in monetary size then the entire Mobile Advertising industry, So its more then having a website and more then just a niche. As there so many different things you can do like get contracts for campaigns.

    There's also well paying($130,000 to $160,000/year) jobs you can get that are real easy,if you worked well enough in marketing for a campaign that was successful.
