    I haven't posted a whole lot here at BHW yet, but I really enjoy it here. I found this site via the AC forums by a post from one of those meddling SAHM's who seems to think she is the queen bee of writing (LOL!...and clearly spends more time on the forums than writing...ha ha).

    While this is an "evil black hat" forum, I find it to be a much friendlier, informative, and helpful place than the AC forums. There's so much bickering, complaining, and complete nonsense on those forums--it makes me wonder if any of those people ever get any work done (judging by the infrequency of certain members' published AC articles, I think not).

    I don't post on the AC forums but I do lurk. There's about 3 or 4 of these SAHMs that fight continuously and give such snarky advice to newbies. I made one post there when I was a newbie and got ripped to shreds that my stuff wasn't SEO-friendly. Yet, a few months later, I'm kicking these same people's ass in terms of PVs, and I have fewer articles published and I've been at ac a much shorter time.

    This "non-SEO friendly" article now has about 7,000 views...not the best, but respectable for being published less than a year ago. My best PV articles I wrote naturally and let the kw's fall where they may.

    Granted, they did have good advice keeping articles around 400-500 words (I was writing much lengthier articles as a newbie), and good title advice--I'll give them that :)

    I don't know, I guess it just bugs me how rude and mean they are to newbies, like a new AC contributor knows nothing about writing and they're the be-it-all, end-all web writer extraordinaire. I don't get frustrated too easily, but I imagine there have been more than a few AC newbies who gave up after receiving a nasty note by these "fantastic" writers on the forums. I'd love to come back on that forum and throw egg on their face, but nahhh... ;) Though it would be fun. :prof01:

    So I lurk instead and watch the fur fly. I'm honestly surprised that the AC forums aren't monitored more closely...there's a few individuals who are downright rude and insulting in 99% of their posts.

    Anyway, this was just on my mind today :)

    I couldn't agree with you more. Sometimes I have a rather hard time keeping my most recent meal down when I read over the AC forums. I've never seen a forum with so much condescending, one upsmanship and bickering tones in my life. I do get the occasional chuckle when they talk about me personally though. ;)

    These types need serious long-term treatment and controlled isolation. :)

    LOL! Thanks dear Red!

    I failed to mention that over-exposure to these people will turn you into a raging ball of fire wanting to hit back at their soft "under-bellies"... but this again is counter-productive, and has absolutely no effect on those blood-sucking mind-paralyzing parasites ... makes them still stronger. Controlled isolation of those is the only remedy, IMHO! :)

    Just re-read the wiki link. My God! :D

    Just read the "Diagnostic Criteria" on that page:
    It says, "A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:" ...

    Five or more indicators! Our creatures completely associate with all the nine!

    Of course I have my deepest sympathy with the real patients and my sincere prayers for healing and happiness are for them, but this particular gang of burden-on-society on the specific forum are total exceptions.

    You know...it really does describe the mentality very well. I won't name names but there are two of them who especially stand out as meeting every bit of that criteria. I picture them sitting in front of their monitor just waiting for the next post to be made so they can be first to correct/contradict the person posting.

    One of them in particular must have zero content submitted over the last 6 months because of their burning desire to flap their gums and grandstand in that forum.

    lol it's oh so pitiful :D

    Yeh, I also know one of those, probable one old fat horrorface with broken yellow teeth - some of them missing, and with a crooked nose with lots of boils on it watching over the forum like a bald vulture. She is especially wild on BHatters. It's fun to read her bre*asts-beating fists-thumping posts though. She and one of her sidekicks give me some grin moments! I think they both use fresh blood for their bath. LOL

    Hmmmm looks like I missed the morning Jerry Springer forum show. I'll have to dash over to AC and tune in. I was one of those newbies that they tore to shreds. I'd be in almost tears and frantic I wouldn't make it as a freelance writer. Tah-Dah! I survived them and the freelance world! Ha, ha.

    Several are a real trip because they don't have the quality, quantity or pv's to back their yap. They're like one of those tiny dogs that barks all the time when someone comes to visit and the shakes for 2 hours after the visitor leaves.

    Although I must say, those dogs are a whole LOT cuter. Also, they actually make more SENSE than the SAHM's do on the AC forum. Ok.. I couldn't resist. Ha, ha.

    Hi!

    If the real dogs read this thread, they would cry and wouldn't talk to you for months, because you compared them to those cross-breed blood suckers! LOL

    Seriously, this is where your being a tough person (read: BHatter) works better. What'll happen if they suddenly get a million hits from differrent IPs (useless otherwise, of course) in one night, especially on the ads displayed on their article page? Would their accounts be flagged? What would happen if they get such hits every day? At least two or three deserve to get some high-voltage shocks of their lives in near future. No, I'm not talking about those cute dogs, of course. :)

    P.S.: Call this a taste of their own medicine! They happily go hunting some poor fellow's adsense account, now they (the newbee-shredding-machines) will see boomrang in action! Hopefully, now their masters should tighten their noose! :D

    Personally, I believe AC forums reflect rather badly upon the company.

    @srb888, that's so wrong! I do love me some karma, where do I sign up at.:prof01:

    I am sure there are 99.9% great peace-loving people on that forum who are just as angry at those "boss'-a$$es". I am not even half-bad as them either. But I read in horror when some of them said they did justice to themselves by spamming some people's google ads. For whatever wrong their targets did, their action was simply inhuman! It's like hanging a person, depriving him/her a chance of livelihood if he/she ever got on the right-track... for what? For simply reprinting articles? There are other effective means to get justice, but these people choose nothing less than the beheading! And they so proudly justify that!

    Now if they are so inhuman to the co-members, then why not do a tit-for-tat, which is more than justified! If they don't want this, they better behave the 21st-Century way, or enjoy the X-WAHM status forever!

    I haven't yet had the pleasure of the AC forums and after reading this I think I will stay well away because my temper may get the better of me. However, I think these women should be pitied because this is all they have in their lives, and they would rather slam others and attempt to destroy their businesses out of pure jealousy and the realization that they can never achieve anything that is even remotely similar.

    Now that I have spoken like a true Samaritan, I could so slap some of these stupid ass wanking numnut idiotic cretinoid moronic asswipe holier than thou' bitches with a queen of the realm complex because they probably don't have the ovaries to stand up for themselves in real life. There, I feel better lol...

    :) You reminded me of Tintin comics!
    It's time they realize that, and their bosses should keep them under tight control. Myopic people! Haven't they heard: People who live in glass houses... :)

    Lol!...if you want a really good laugh, dig back into the "general discussions" section and look for the thread where they talk about the "evil blackhatters" and "redtide and his disciples". It's freaking classic! ;)

    True, true!

    Using Danny's submitter, I rarely login other than to chack stats and keep an eye on Darnell's (AC staff member) weekly updates for changes that may be upcoming. While I'm there I'll scan over the title's of some of the threads to see if BHW is mentioned also.

    these two forums are literally worlds apart in terms on the way people think, lol, if people there realized some of the shit people here are doing to exploit AC, and other similar sites, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be slaving away to write the articles themselves for slave wages.

    this reminds me, I need to hire a web assistant, outsourced worker, who is going to help me "get a bit more involved" in the AC forums, by posting a few posts and making comments every now and then on my various accounts

    There are so many people like this lurking online, I can't help but see $ signs in people acting this way since I think these people who are living through the computer (rather than making a living through it) are often the ones who are most easily duped and led into different things, not to sound too evil, lol

    Madblacker,

    They do know exactly what we are up to. We make it no secret. They do lurk around here and even join up sometimes (one got booted off BHW by a mod not too long ago!).

    They continue to slave because of "ethics", "professionalism", and because they believe AC loves them. They are proud of those little CP badges like a Kindergarten kid is proud of his golden star sticker.

    I'm pretty sure a few gotten their hands on Red's ebook and Danny's AC submitter.

    Besides, I prefer if they keep slaving away. I truly hope they will continue! Makes it easier for me to scrap their articles to rewrite for other sites.:D
