    Kelly Felix (a.k.a. "The Rich Jerk") made millions from telling
    people how dumb they were and how rich he was. But he did
    it in a strategic, "tongue-in-cheek" manner. You need to be
    very adept when you use that kind of humor - otherwise
    it can and will backfire on you.

    Yes. I actually tried something similar as a little fun test a while back It was a hit here at bhw. I stopped working on it because I was too busy with other stuff, but the potential is definitely there. Here was that thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh.../485382-inbox-trolling-10-000-troll-goal.html



    P.S. Wiz is a very wise man and one of my good friends here. You will learn alot more if you pay attention to his posts :)

    Thanks :) Yea, as I said, I have so many things goin on on any given day that sometimes it is just impossible to start something new or keep something small going. Just ask any one of my business or jv partners how busy I am lol, I'm sure they will tell you that I'm a work horse :D

    Yes . . . I also thought of doing it several years ago. The thing is,
    if you are going to do it, you need to create a persona/charactor.

    I was going to call my persona, "The Rich Son of a Bitch" or The
    "Filthy Rich Son of a Bitch". However,I canned the idea, since it
    would only end up as being a "me-too" character and I could
    guess that someone would come along and call me out as being
    a copycat. Anyway, if you want it, you are welcome to it. At the
    time of this post, the domain names therichsonofabitch.com and
    filthyrichsob.com are still available . . . First come, first serve! :)

    Best of luck to you!

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    When I sold my first ebook in 1999 on Usenet and a few forums, I created a 'character' to sell it, and it worked quite well. It was completely by accident, but it worked. :) It amazes me how people will trust a cool 'character', but not a real person. o_O
