    I would like to ask why OP (CyberSEO) is banned and his thread (Re: [GET] CyberSEO professional autoblogging plugin for free!) is no longer exist?

    I am just asking this because I don't know what is happening about him or his thread. I want to make sure that it is not related to his shared plugin because I just got his email with the licensed of it and I want to confirm first if is safe as I can no longer access his thread because he is now banned.

    Thanks in advance.

    He had a thread where he was offering his plugin in return for an email address.
    I deleted his thread and told him that we do not allow shares in which the
    author is allowed to collect email addresses from members. That would enable
    him to market to them outside of Black Hat World, which is a big no-no.

    Then, without my permission, he posted a new thread without the need for
    an email address. However, on his new thread (which is now deleted as well),
    he accused me of "false information" because I told him after I deleted his
    first thread that it is an old method for marketers to offer "free software",
    and require an email address so they can market to members outside of
    BHW. . . I guess he took that as an insult. :)

    He is now on "vacation" for a month. I could have permanently banned him,
    but I didn't. However, he needed to learn that you do not publicly diss staff
    members.

    End of story . . .

    I really didn't know that it's not allowed to ask for the email addresses at BHW. That's my fault, sorry. However I have to assure all those board members who got the free CyberSEO license before my thread was deleted: all the provided information (including emails) was used to generate the license key only. You may check the standard order form at my official website to see which exactly information is required to generate the license. Your emails will never be used for spam purposes and of course they will never be provided to any 3rd parties. That's my official statement regarding your privacy.

    Since the license can not be generated without emails, I will not be able to continue free giveaway of the CyberSEO plugin on BHW anymore as I do it on some other IM boards. I'm sincerely apologize for this situation.

    2WizGizmo, the lesson was taken and I'll do all my best to never break the BHW rules again. Thank you.

    I'll try to explain. I've launched that give away action on a few SEO boards (find others with Google) to make sure that every existing board member (must be registered before the announcement date to avoid swindling) will get a free copy of my plugin. One copy per one person. This is why I was using SEO boards and PM's as a way of distribution. Otherwise I just won't be able to ensure that the same person did not get more than one copy of my plugin. Unfortunately this was not allowed at BHW. It was may fault that I did break the rules and I was
    rightly punished. I'm sorry but I don't want to do this again.

    Please DO NOT send me an email like "Hi, I'm [nickname] from [some SEO board] and I want to get a free copy of your product". Because I will never be able to know that you are really the same person as that [nickname] from [that SEO board]. I hope my explanation above was useful.

    Once again, I'm very sorry for this situation.
