    As I was reading around the forums today, I come across this page which I have come across many times before: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-12-months-how-you-can-do-too-thanks-bhw.html

    Now here is where it starts to get interesting

    Okay, so it goes to his case study. Fair enough right? WRONG!

    What the hell is this shit? No one else is allowed to do this and for damn good reason.

    I hope this gets fixed as soon as possible.

    First MLM reviews and now some sneaky redirects. Keeps getting better eh?

    This is really a serious issue. MOD should take care on the claim.

    It's just something that needs to be sorted out. Put away your torches and pitchforks and lets fix this with action.

    As sneaky as it is, I assume it's just an affiliate link with a misleading title. AFAIK, Donor/Jr.Vip's are allowed to have an affiliate link in their signature.

    No one said it wasn't, but the right solution to this is not a mouth off war. The mods will handle the case.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I fail to see what's wrong with this? It's the same as using bit.ly to redirect your links and there's nothing wrong with having affiliate URLs in your signature.

    He is not allowed to do what? Mathew can have 3 affiliate or product links in his signature
    or a banner like everyone else. :)

    A guy known for making tutorial videos linking to a page where you neither get a tutorial nor a video. I guess if that floats your boat!

    You aren't allowed to link to squeeze pages, as far as I know... right?

    I don't understand...

    This is the 3rd or 4th time I see this, where Internet Marketers don't like being marketed to. And more so, they don't like being deceived...

    .... on a black hat forum....

    Ah. Grow up guys.

    This really has nothing to do that, more of a conversation whether what Matthew has in his signature is ethical/morally correct or not. As far as I'm concerned, it is allowed though.

    And the post was a good read imo.

    You are not allowed to have call to action banners or text in your signature. The link goes right to
    a download for exactly what was described in his signature. Personally I think this is a witch hunt for
    no good reason at all.

    Yep! Let's be adults, and let the guy do what he does.

    If he doesn't have a direct impact on your life, cool. Let it be brahhhh
