    I've only been here a few days but theres one thing thats been bothering me.

    Its that I see someone signup here then within their first 10 posts they have the next marketing idea "thats just right for me."

    This forum gets so many newbs signing up to make a quick buck off other newbs. I think posts should be monitored so that new sign ups cant make posts offering shit.

    I mean its great to contribute but your not going to have any idea if other peopled have already offered what you have. Your also going to get a ton of replies from senior members about how they dont believe you.

    This forum offers so much. I just hate how I feel like I have to wade though all the trash to find it. Newb posters and their shitty products and services are just adding to that trash.

    Also, simple forum rules arent being enforced. I've seen billions of replys that are nothing more then thank yous. Its obvious that people are just trying to inflate post count.

    I love this place and its given me so much even in the short time I've been here. But for gods sake would someone please put a noose on these fucking newbs?

    Report, -rep, and discriminate against n00b-posts... stay where there are large number of replies on a thread and/if it's a stickied thread, it's sad that we're going to have to start treating things like a hurricane is approaching, but that's the only approach. Actually, a hurricane is approaching - it's a large influx of recession-tensioned individuals, most with little remorse and multitudes of hungry bellies. On the other hand, make sure you fill in your daily work so you can get paid - don't spend all day worrying about forum affairs.

    It's easier said than done.

    Think of it this way.

    1) There are a finite number of mods.

    2) In each of these mods' days, they have a finite amount of waking hours in which they can police the forums.

    3) There is a virtually infinite number of "noobs" who can browse the internet and stumble upon these forums, especially in light of the fact that we are in a global recession and more people are exploring alternative ways of making money.

    Therefore, it is unreasonable to expect the "finite" to be able to "put a noose" on the "infinite" number of "fucking newbs".

    The mods here are doing a great job, and they have a tough decision to make when they implement new rules. Certain rules may stifle the growth of this forum and deter those new members who may in fact become positive contributors.

    I think it's a bit harsh to be complaining about it and request they be banned. We were all noobs at one point in time. Even though it may be messy to a degree, the more posts BHW gets, the better.

    I'd hate to see this site die due to a ban hammer. In a year or two, these "noobs" could become senior members providing excellent content.

    Look man, Im not against new members. For christ sake I am one. But give me a break. When someone signs up here and starts asking people to join their fucking MLM scheme OR FOR GODS SAKE THIS SHIT: Look what I got in my PM box today

    This guy signed up just to promote his product. Its total BS. I have no idea why you would get defencive about an obvious problem. I understand that is no easy task running a popular web forum, but dont shoot me just because I make a point of a significant problem.

    I'm a new user on here. But, trust me I've been making money the white hat way online for 5 years. I'm now trying other techniques which are posted all over on here..

    show some respect.
