    Should a newbie try blackhat from the beginning or should I wait and learn whitehat first?

    I ask because almost everything I have learned thus far has been black hat and I am afraid of getting banned right from the beginning.

    i suggest learn the basics from whitehat and then try a little blackhat....it also depends what you are trying to do.

    In my opinion but as said this is only my opinion, you should get the grips of whitehat
    first before you start tinkering and stretching the boundaries.
    Many people think that blackhat is a shortcut to quick wealth whereas I believe it is just
    a method of enhancing your earnings.
    Solid whitehat fundamentals will earn you money for years to come whereas blackhat can
    disappear in an instant.

    Thanks! I guess I knew the answer deep down anyway. But being anxious to earn money creates a sense of urgency.
