    Just thought everyone should probably be aware that StumbleUpon does not permit the blatant practice of reciprocal reviewing or stumbling:

    " The practice of sending PM?s encouraging or inviting other stumblers to rate/review sites in exchange for reciprocal reviews/ratings, monetary, or any other form of reward is strictly forbidden.

    The practice of actively soliciting a rating or review for a site is also forbidden. Accounts participating in such practices will be deleted and banned, and the related sites deleted and banned from the system."

    Not to be a killjoy here but just a friendly note for those who might not know

    The general feel I get from BHW is most we discuss is against TOS's to get an edge on the competition. I could not be happier.

    It's funny you bring this up.

    It demonstrates that you really don't follow what this forum is about.

    This forum is all about violating TOS and getting away with it to get an edge. Nothing illegal, just getting an advantage that other people aren't willing to get because of the risks involved.

    It's kinda the point of the TOS... to be warped into our own advantageous ways!
