Do you use blackhat methods for the majority of your income, or do you use them to supplement/start up your whitehat ventures? The way I understand it, is that blackhat is supposed to be temporary income, usually for startup capital for something more long-term. I assumed this was true for the majority of blackhatters as well, which is why I'm surprised to see so many people complaining that they're not making money, and even squabbling over 10 dollars. I understand there are people who only do this as a hobby, but in that case they should have more realistic expectations about their net profit. I couldn't imagine having most of my income being blackhat, and the stress that would come along with it. It just doesn't sound like a very happy life, constantly having to worry about being discovered and not being able to pay rent for the month. I'm not trying to offend anyone here, just looking for some answers.
