    I recently got some offpage seo work done from warriorforum, so i got my reports, but the links were a little bit crappy, not as stated as in the thread, but i am somehow scared to post a negative and honest review, because i am afraid of getting negative seo done from the provider, if you know what i mean, normally you can never find any bad reviews there... so just curious, what do you think ?

    I know, that sounds paranoid, but who knows...

    Just go ahead and give the honest comment to their service. If they do some negative seo for your site then collect the evidence and post it on their thread so it will backfire to them.

    message them privately first - tell them what happened
    and ask them first [ WILL THEY KINDLY FIX IT ]

    if you get an aggressive reply or none at all then
    contact a mod on there forum, i would assume that's
    what they are there for

    ^^ exactly what I'd do. Give them benefit of the doubt first, be polite and explain the goods don't match the sales pitch.

    Hopefully they'll sort it out/offer you a refund or whatever, if they don't, post your review/contact mods.

    Will those people whose money you will save help you in any way if your site(s) gets hit and you go out of business? Also, I think you are talking about a cheap service <$50.
    I don't care if you judge me, but if I had a big site in danger, I would prefer having several $k's in my account, then several thanks on a forum from people who buy all the hype.

    That's how things work over there.

    If you sell worthless products, the WF is the place to go. If you're a buyer, you better stay away from them.

    People can get crazy about leaving negative reviews. There is a protocol of decency that you should display before resorting to angered forum posts on sales threads. Talk to the vendor over PM or email first. Give them a week or so to respond (people are busy) and if they give you a negative response or don't try to do something to make up for your lack of satisfaction, even if it's a mere compromise, then [maybe] give them a negative review.

    You can't treat every person you buy from as an evil SOB, give them a chance at first.

    Leave your bad review. If they earned it, they deserve it!

    That's the scary part of SEO'ers, they have the control to keep or remove anything they want (to an extent). Agreed, post in his thread.

    depends how much money you make with your website and the amount of money you lost. If your website earns just a few dollars, then fire ahead and write the most negative review you can think of. If it's a high earner, then just accept your loss and move on ...
