    Early this morning I went through BST to look for links.

    1 thread caught my attention and interest

    The seller was promising real outreach guest posts on real blogs.
    Price range $50 to $250 for a post which seemed reasonable for a guest post.

    So far so good,so I asked him for samples in my niche to buy.

    When I checked his websites,it was clear that those were not real blogs & real outreach but very well restructured websites from archive.org

    Also those sites had spammy backlinks from other lower quality pbns.Bloog comments & guest books.

    Anyone with a decent knowledge about seo & little digging could spot & separate those blogs from real blogs.

    I decided to not buy & posted what I found on the sellers thread as a warning and letting people know that those are not real outreach post as seller promised but HQ pbn posts & that op is not selling what he is promising.

    Mods removed my post and I got an infraction for Inappropriate Behaviour / trolling.


    I feel this is not fair because all I did was to warn fellow buyers what they were buying instead of what they think they were buying.




    This is not the first time that I see a misleading tittle for a service and something else,totally different,lower quality being offered.This time I just posted my opinion publicly.


    So I am asking you , was this a fair infraction?



    Disclaimer: I have nothing against of that seller nor I compete in any way with him

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but in that type of case, I think you're supposed to report the thread to the moderators with the data you've collected so that they can look into it.

    Since you didn't buy the seller's service, it could have seemed like you were just derailing the seller's thread rather than leaving a review.

    Protecting BHW's marketplace threads is the main objective of BHW, it is their main bread and butter.
    You obviously did not do the right thing, else you wouldn't have gotten an infraction from the mods, because the mods are always right and you should NEVER criticize their ruling.They work so hard, that you should feel so grateful for what their FREE work is providing to this WONDERFUL forum.

    You weren't supposed to make a public post - as opposed to letting a moderator know about it (so that they could handle it).

    It's like calling somebody out in public, for something that should only be talked about in private. It's still 'right' in the eyes of a consumer, but still TECHNICALLY wrong.

    Although you should have just reported the thread but, I don't see anything wrong with informing/warning fellow members if something isn't right. It's not that you had made all the stuff up. You had received the official sample from the seller himself (which is quite like a review copy sent to check the service's quality) and you reported what you found about his service.

    Remove the post from the seller's thread?
    OK. Justified.

    Infraction?
    Doesn't seem right.

    But that's just my opinion. The forum has its rules and the mod must have just been following them.

    If they allowed negative reviews, nobody would buy anything and the revenue would have plummeted.

    I don't see as many ebooks being sold but the low quality services around are kinda being a pain in the ass.

    I think the mods should be more strict in their first review and actually seperate HQ services from low quality ones.


    ATM all I see is:

    "OP Delivered a link with nice metrics" kind of reviews.

    The mods may not necessarily be at fault here. The sellers might just be providing different service to the mod for review and then selling something else to the public.

    You got an infraction for breaking the rules. If you've got an issue with something, you either report it or you take it to the shitlist - that way we'll look at it and deal with the issue if we find it's justified

    Otherwise, anyone can bitch about any other person and there's no control or accountability. I'm sorry if this has been a difficult concept for you to grasp.

    Whinging ends here - thread closed.
