    Have you ever dreamed of writing javascript and php redirects, or of a new money making method, and wake up and thinks its really a good idea? Do you look at every aspect of your life, and apply blackhat methods to it?

    I do. I eat, sleep, and breathe black hat.

    I go to bed thinking about that encryption algorithm I was just working on for 3 hours, and wake up with a solution. I sit in the car, and instead of listening to tunes, I try to think of the most secure way to send customers their program. I do math to see if the project I'm working on is worth it. I find it necessary to tell everyone I know what I am working on at that moment.

    Yesterday, I explained an encryption function I wrote in delphi to my girlfriend for 30 minutes, trying to make her understand how I split a hex string into smaller pieces..

    I worked online for over 4 hours on my birthday..

    Is all this good, or is it addiction? Who knows, I just know one thing. I live blackhat, and that isn't changing any time soon.

    I've dreamt about BHW before!!...

    it was actually about someone's avatar!! The one with the boobs floppin up and down :D...
    @Pofecker- I even awoke one night to check my attic.... thinking a crazed Hatchet man may be hiding behind my manikins..

    it's an addiction, yes.....
    but I love it..

    I believe that if it starts harming your life or making you feel like shit.. it's bad.

    If it is starting to negatively effect your life then I would call it bad.. but an addiction doesn't necessarily mean good or bad. I don't even think it's effecting others negatively.. blackhat just means potentially illegal or "unethical".. but that is just a catchall term for control I believe.

    I wish I had more time to work on BH stuff. I feel like I could do so much with it but have no time because im going to school, doing an internship and studying for actuarial exams.

    I sometimes don't sleep all night because I can't stop thinking about marketing....

    or my dreams consist of marketing...

    It's a problem.

    : Dude! I was dreaming about this hot chick last night and... You have any interesting dreams recently?
    me: I had a dream about dynamic linking strategies... Does that count?

    i totally sympathize.. i've tried and tried to succeed in IM for years now and literally had none until i found this site about a month ago; and i must say i'm at least (perhaps to a lesser degree) plagued with the same, wonderful disease. haha it's not so bad... it's productive at least, right?

    Yeah, very productive. If BHW has made me anything, it's productive.
    I've always had this blackhat mindset, but never knew what to call it until I came here.
