    Guys,

    Last week I signed in at 9am as I do every morning ever since I joined the site. I was faced with a "Temporarily Banned" message until 8/4/12 (1 Week). The reason was for creating a WTB (Want to buy) thread outside the Want to buy section. I could not believe it, I nearly fell of my chair. Even my girlfriend was like "What's wrong babe??"

    I pondered on the idea of creating another account just so I could see the download section, but I thought to my self I made A VERY STUPID MISTAKE and that I should serve my ban as intended. I also didn't want to commit further infractions and possibly get banned for good......

    It has turned out to have a positive affect on me!!

    A) I realised what this site means to me, A LOT!! I read virtually every thread of value and work closely with a few guys that I met on here. I value BHW more than any other site on the world wide web. That is saying something!!!

    B) I got more done because I wasn't reading/creating threads on here. I brain stormed some nice ideas and made some decent $$. I have started my first PPC campaign, which is going well and I'm earning well. I also have ventured into YouTube and can see some real potential there.

    READ THE RULES CLOSELY!! I didn't even know what I was doing was against the rules, that's MY FAULT for not reading the rather extensive rules!!

    Take 20 mins out of your day to read the rules.

    Its good to be back!!

    P.S loving the update guys!!

    Some shares coming soon!!

    It sounds like you have an addiction to downloading endless ebooks..

    If the morning of your ban you felt you needed to go get more ebooks then something's really wrong, bro. Reading endless ebooks won't make you money. You should be reading 10-15% max and working 85-90%. To be honest you should really be working 99%. Once you've read a few things and you know what you're going to do the next stage is to just work work work. Reading more stuff will just give you a lot of surface knowledge in a lot of different areas without actually becoming an expert in any 1 area.

    Ebooks?? At what point did I mention ebooks. So your basically saying there's no value in this forum?? I don't really understand your point apart from the Jack of all trades comment. That's so true and the reason why I only work with authority sites, Niche sites, some PPC and now a bit of youtube!!

    Most of the time the value is in the posts inside a thread, what's working and what's not. In these turbulent times of Google forever changing there algorithm, it is good to know what's working for people and what's not!! I really don't take all this that seriously. I earn 6 figures in my day job but after a few not very successful business ventures I ventured into the online domain and came accross BHW.

    Holy crap. *takes cover inside shell*

    No need to hunker down and get out the heavy machine gun! I come in peace!

    When you're defensive and refuse to objectively look at yourself then you'll never experience the positive change that you most likely want.

    I'm just saying what I see and sometimes it's hard to see our own lives from that 3rd party perspective.

    You're welcome to accept my advice or ignore it and continue hunkered down in your bunker. :)

    This happened to me once and I felt the same as you did, although it did allow me some time to work on projects instead of surfing BHW :)

    Some of us have been banned and didn't commit an infraction as far as we could tell, so we even don't know what we were supposed to have learned. After a recent ban I contacted a mod to get an answer, or to provide an example as to where I specifically had violated TOS. The answer I got back was, they didn't even knew who had banned me. Oh well, life goes on.

    Welcome back. I know the feeling about being banned from a forum (not this one)
