    Anyone else? Seems like there are so many less posts. Are people leaving?

    Also, no mods have posted any reasons. Everyone is Mr Goodie two shoes all of a sudden. Whats up with that?

    Can we have an explanation as to why the format has changed? Basically we are all treading on eggshells. Wondering if we can post about this and that only to find out we may get banned starting with myself i suppose for even posting about it. Please keep in mind, i am simply wondering why as no reason has been given.

    of course there's less post, what did you expect? two big subforum went to the trashbin for good reason, Dave, HaRRo and others explained why they did what they did, if you aren't dumb as hell (no offense), you should have to understand the reason for now

    There's probably going to be a lot of posts over the next few days asking "hey, where's this? where's that? why can't I find the ___ thread?" Just ignore them, they'll figure it out eventually.

    I thought some things had changed, then some large box appeared for me to agree to.

    Still Rules are Rules.

    Take a chill pill, ave some juice. There's important stuff to be doing like making real money instead of that monopoly stuff you play with.

    Anybody else like the reduction in posts? Makes it easier to navigate BHW. While I am saddened because those two forums were "essential" learning for BHWers in the past, I feel the abuse by people has harmed the top earners.

    The subforums that was cut off was supposed to be not so good ergo the people whose not here anymore because of that are also not so good people.

    Make sense?

    BHW doesn't allow deception now...kind of goes against the whole point of "blackhat" don't you think? Maybe rename blackhatworld to whitehatworld :) ? I'm not saying I'm for deception, just saying it sounds funny.

    I think what they did only improves the quality of the forum. This new guidelines will improve how people behaves and treat other members.:)
