    Hey all!

    My name is Jewel. I'm a member of a few Work at Home forums and I came across this board while looking up a certain Craigsp*mp scam site. I really love all of the hard work, passion, and dedication you all have put into this forum.

    In truth, I have NO idea what half of this stuff means (including all of the acronyms) but I'm trying really hard and I'm eager to learn.


    First and foremost, why are these money making efforts called blackhats/whitehats? Are they illegal? For example: Affiliate programs where you post ads on CL to collect e-mails for future spamming. Sorry....I'm sure I'll get flamed for not reading the entire board before posting that question, I'm just trying to get a feel for what the repercussions of these types of jobs are.

    So anyways!
    I'm Jewel. I'm a senior in college. and I'm new. Thanks.

    Hi Jewel, welcome aboard!

    Look at the sticky posts here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f25-blackhat-lounge/ for a feel of what you'll find. There's an abbreviation explanation there, too.

    No, BH techniques are not illegal. Sneaky, underhanded, entering through the back door, yes... illegal, no. Although, on occasion, you'll run into someone doing blatantly illegal things who label themselves as BH. Gives us all a bad rap, though.

    Enjoy your time here. I do! ;)
