    Hello Fellow B-Hatters:

    From time to time, we have members who post threads asking things like:

    "How Much Is My Twitter Account With 50K Followers Worth?"

    - OR -

    "Where Can I Sell My (whatever)?"

    Come on people! . . . Do you think the staff is that dumb?!?!

    It is obvious that threads like those are simply a ploy to bypass by the need
    to apply for and get approved for a listing in our Marketplace. However, this
    is going to stop NOW! We have members who have legitimately paid to get
    Jr VIP status and who also pay to have their offer listed in our Marketplace.
    It is totally unfair to them when you try to "BlackHat" us!

    If I see any more of those types of threads, HARSH MEASURES will be taken.

    Thank You For Your Future Compliance . . .

    "Wiz"

    Yes kinda sick of reading such posting. Also can consider measure on this type of postings too,"What is the best SEO service", "Is this seo service good",...etc. There are many popping out each days and many of those posters are newbies, if not, registered for years ago but inactive long period accounts, obviously here come some replies, will "suggest" certain bst here... Blackhat within blackhatters.

    Thank you Wiz, I got tired of seeing those types of threads myself. Not only are they trying to bypass having to pay but whoever is buying from them is possibly setting themselves up to be scammed.

    Agree with you Wiz.
    Poor attempts at trying to Blackhat and/or Market to us, by trying to bypass and circumvent the rules is infuriating.
    No matter how much hate these threads get, people still respond to them via PM etc. so it encourages more people to try it.
    Glad something will be done about it.

    Don't be afraid to report them. You are doing both the members
    and our legitimate sellers a BIG favor by letting us know.

    Thank You! :)

    Even though I am sick of those threads myself, I am going to have to disagree here. About a year ago I found a really good keyword to rank but had no idea how to monetize it except for possibly collecting leads. Now, I was not familiar with this industry and made a thread asking others who may have been more familiar how I could work this angle.

    The thread was deleted and I was given an infraction. Hell of a way to encourage actual discussion. Bad apples should not ruin the discussion for everyone else.

    If no one has worked with you on your proposed Marketplace thread, it usually
    means that it was denied for one reason or another. However, this thread is
    not the place to discuss your issue. This thread is an entirely different topic.

    Thank You

    Thanks for this post. Actually newbies will learn from such posts. Nowdays blackhatworld.com is very popular and it's very good to be bit strict; so that genuine people may get good benefit. It's very nice site for online business :)
