    Greetings..
    Im wondering what would be the next BST I will release. In fact, I am wondering if it is a good choice to release a BST that offers mass scrapers for custom sites, could be jigsaw, data, yelp, gumtree, whitepages, spokeo, and anything the user wants. Also CPA form filling that fakes user agents, proxy and so.
    I will check if site is not encrypted and then accept the request.
    This BST is to track if there is enough people interested on this. Im not selling or offering or wont deal with anyone since this is out of the rules of the forum. This is just a poll.

    Also you can put reasons, Ive seen many BSTs dissapear that offered custom bots (scrapers). Maybe its a pain in the ass doing this jobs, maybe not.

    You think that you can sell a bot like this here? Have you read the rules at all? Not to mention that there are some CPA networks with accounts here.

    You really think that's a good idea?

    You've been here since 2010.

    What is wrong with you?

    Nothing, I havent broke any rule, look can you show me the rule that specifically covers your argument. This is why I created this thread, to get informed about what is possible or not. But not getting your point.

    The point is that the CPA aspect of your Bot ideas is fraud and not permitted.

    The scrapers, though, could be very useful for folks.

    I didnt know CPA was giving this problem. Sorry about that, but where can I read further about this so I dont get around this. I would like to sit for about 30 min and read all about this points before launching a BST that has an offer that could get me banned.

    Only good scrapers for cpa really are bots that can scrape competitors ads.

    You would not get banned; the thread would not get approved though as fraud is not permitted.

    The rules are here - http://www.blackhatworld.com/help/terms

    3.3 Activity that involves Currency Trades or Exchanges (Example: Exchanging PayPal for eGold money), Buying/Selling CPA accounts, Buying/Selling Social Security Numbers or Identities, CPA offer filling circles, Paying to have CPA offers filled, Requesting fake review comments for other forums' BST sections, Digg / Stumble (or similar) requests and trades, Asking how to make $xxx/day, Any "fake" account for the purposes of defrauding a network or individual, Promoting other forums by any means including in your signature, Creating more than one account on BHW.

    Scraping bots are around but due to sites being changed all the time they have to be updated on some sort of regular basis. At one time in my IM journey I used them for a few different things and I'm sure that there is a market for that.

    Thanks a lot for the guidance @BassTrackerBoats
    And for the scraper, yes it changes constantly, but maybe I will offer 15 days guarantee. And for twitching and fixing it will be a lower price anytime a site changes the parameters either with CSS Selectors, Xpath or Regex.
    Im gonna read with calm the terms, because I havent done that since I joined :/
