    If this is how senior members and jrvips treat people then this really isn't a very friendly forum at all.

    I hadn't logged on in a few weeks until today and I found this from macdonjo3 in my inbox

    Never spoken to this guy in my life, yet he feels the need to message me with a very rude pm title of "another failure", then follows up telling me I'm someone slaving at a day job.

    I deal with business people every day, and I've never met anyone with so much time on their hands that they're pm'ing strangers on a forum to pick fights over their supposed success/income.

    I could be a millionaire or I could be someone struggling at a day job. Why would jrvips on a forum like this think it's appropriate to attack someone who's not made it on their own yet anyway?

    This kind of mindless attack on people who haven't had success yet sickens me. We should be supporting newbies, not attacking them.

    The only thing I can think of is that macdonjo is nothing more than a poser who's unhappy with his own failures, so looks for others to troll. His close to 4000 posts since nov 2009 would seem to back this assumption up. There's just far too much to do when running a business to have time to make 4000 posts on one forum alone.

    I thought I'd share this with everyone to see what the response is like. How people respond will tell me if the forum as a whole is like macdonjo, or if this is actually a serious place.

    It didn't sound mean to me, but telling you that without adding anything productive was stupid. This forum has some helpful people but sadly they make up 5% in my experience. Help fellow IM'ers out, don't tell people what they already know.

    So what? If you're offended by that, life is going to ruin you.

    Stop caring so much. There are plenty of jackasses out there, it is what it is. The 5 minutes it took you to write that post could have been spent making money. When / if you break through to substantial success, you'll get a helluva lot more hate than that. Hell, there's more hate than that being thrown at the average Joe already. Grow a thicker skin and learn to brush it off.

    Just because there's a bad apple on an apple tree doesn't mean the rest of the apples are bad. Just throw that one away and pick another.

    Only macdonjo3 can confirm this message... Anyway people will not come here and vouch that they are very good and help others... You want to know if forum is people friendly or not then ask questions and see their response... You will find lots of people helping you... But don't ask same question which is already answered many times in forum... First search and try to find and if still stuck then ask... Community always got mix of people so you can't judge community by behavior of few.

    I employ 12 members of staff in my own business and I've never experienced any haters in the real world. I'm new to forums, so this is a bit of a surprise to me that people just randomly attack and make assumptions. My mobile company was an attempt at diversifying my offline SEO business into mobile to see if it was profitable and it turned out to be a bit of a slog and hard to scale without direct involvement while keeping profitability.

    My gut tells me that he probably wants to have a go at a mobile web design company himself and is trying to fish for clues about whether or not I was successful. Potentially baiting me into revealing things. I could give my mobile web design Ltd company name and my accounts could be looked up on duedil or similar, but that's not going to happen.

    WOW. Really? Just because of the short exchange of PMs?

    I do agree the tone of the PM was a little antagonistic but that's his problem.

    It's only your problem if you allow it to be.

    You know he was making wrong assumptions anyway as you are not a 9-5er and you own your own business.

    If that were me, I'd leave him to keep labouring under the false assumption that I'm loser - and just carry on being a winner (with a wry smile on my face).

    Personally, I wouldn't even be offended by this type of message as irrelevant people don't concern me. Each to their own I guess.

    Some senior members on this website solely use this forum to troll ive noticed, dont provide anything useful. Also if you look at a big enough old thread you will see senior,vip and donors banned so dont take anyone with a bunch of stars or blue username to seriously.

    Not fair!

    With one bad example, you've put everyone in one common basket though (even with that "If", the whole complaint is too much. I guess many people are going to be unhappy, even some might/will/may commit suicide-- in extreme cases ofc-- imo)... :(.

    I protest...

    What's wrong in doing a google search? You want free advices and gifts only in help? He gave you a perfectly valid and good advice there.
