    I have not been a member here too long, but I am already sick and tired of all these shit-list threads showing up.

    Almost everyday I see a new thread. Why is it so many idiots who are scamming other members? Aren't we just one big family?

    If someone is not happy with the service you sold them, just give them a freaking refund! Of course things would be different if you did your part of the agreement. But why is so many scamming and getting scammed lately?

    Providers must understand, that if they give one guy a refund without hassle. This will give you more customers. Since others can see that you are a stand up guy/gal that give refunds.

    Buyers must understand that big projects need contracts! And if you buy a service, where the thing ordered are done as agreed. You cannot ask for a refund if it does not helped you gaining more money.

    Thanks to all the mods though, you guys rock and work a lot to maintain quality here on BHW.

    I just had to blow off some steam here.

    nah actually I like the shitlist. as a spectator, it is one of the most intense part of the forum. Kinda medieval, it remembers me from a distant place or a previous life when executions were performed in public and all. We all have that as "fun" somewhere in our dna lol.

    Sad thing people get scammed, sure. But some of the threads are very informative about what kind of people you shouldn´t work with.

    I dont disagree with you blackrat. It is fun reading, but my concern is that its not happening once a month or so, there is at least one new thread a week. I think that is too much

    In a perfect world there would be no scammers.

    Some people want quick money and they are willing to rip people off.

    It's the same in the real world. If you go down an alley you may get robbed or you may not, so you have to be aware of what you are getting yourself into.

    Read the whole post and you see my thanks to the mods :)

    But you can't disagree with me either I think. It is great we have the shit-list, but my concern is that it have been a lot of new threads there lately.

    Does it really upset you this much? Theres hundreds of thousands of registered members here at BHW, a few shitlist threads a week is a very good ratio actually. What sucks more at bhw are rep and thank whores because they abuse and ruin that system as a measure of trust worthiness. cough *your signature* cough.

    HTML:
    If I said something useful or funny. +rep and thanks are welcome

    In Most of the sections of BHW, there will be a sticky thread warning our members, to take at most care, while doing business with fellow members. But, they are ignoring it and finally reaching the shitlist section.

    I did not create this thread to make anyone mad or anything. As i have stated, I am just concerned since I believe i have seen a growth in them lately.

    If you think my signature is so disturbing I have nothing against removing it. I am not about whoring for rep or thanks. It is for me just a way to see if i have provided something to the community.

    In my opinion, the "im new, how do i make money?" threads are much more worse. Shitlist is always entertaining.

    Those are irritating also, but they don't rip people off.

    Feel grateful that we have shitlist threads. There does seem to be a few new ones lately, but nothing too alarming.

    Most forums (like Warrior Forum) don't have anything like it and mods aren't as welcoming to feedback about other members. People over there make thousands of dollars a month ripping off members with crappy WSO products and there is literally no recourse. I picked someone out over there for having used fake screenshots, fake income claims and absolutely nothing happened.

    I am totally grateful that we have the shit-list. I think many who have read this thread have misunderstood me. I am in NO way against the shit-list. But I am not happy with the growth of new threads there lately. Is that hard to understand?

    And as i have mentioned two times already. The mods are doing an awesome job, no doubt about it. And BHW is like heaven compared too Warrior Forum.

    There there, we get it. You´re an activist with a lack of a better cause. :D

    We´re all happy you are concerned about the health of the business in the forum, and you are taking actions and all.

    In the silence of the night you can wear your underwear above your pants and act as scam bait on the bst/haf sections... let´s see what you would be called.....

    Super shit list man? no that´s crappy...

    Hey don´t get upset because of people´s opinions man. We understand you´re trying to come across as a helpful member and that´s nice, but bhw is bhw and people are people, free to think and act as they wish, furthermore in the internets, where the chance of taking a bullet is likely reduced, it is somewhat easy to conceal yourself and whatnot... so thank mods for having a system like that in order in the first place. As long as there is money rolling there will always be scammers, so thanks shitlist. Just stay out of it, asnd in case shit happens don´t hesitate to use it (after reading the rules that is).

    Things will always be like this. Shitty threads or services will always exist. Speaking from my experience... last week I overpaid an individual/company hoping to get the job done well and fast, and even though he had very good stats the job is not even 1/4 done, those results are very shitty.

    And this things did not happen here were freelancers can't be "properly" tested. I had a freaking contract...

    Its good that we have the shit-list, which helps to keep shit out of this forum on regular basis.

    More threads means more shit is being nuked out. So what makes you sad? you should be happy imho :)

    And ofc we get to see some nice pop-corn pics :D

    Man, i really would hope people would read the whole post.
    I don't disagree with any of you. I just don't think it is positive with all the scammers.

    Is my English that bad, so no one are able to understand me?

    Enough said, I am totally happy we have the shit list. Don't get me wrong

    this annoys me to, also people that share stuff asking for rep and thanks I've already flamed a certain member about this not so long ago lol , share if your gonna share dont ask for something in return if you do get it then its a bonus......
    messing with the rep system is a good way for someone to set up a good looking account in order to scam in the future! this is what i think anyway,

    if you help people out and make good post or even funny posts you will gradually acquire rep and thanks naturally I've been here 2 months and have never once asked for any but they appear naturally

    as for the shitlist its good to have tbh as meathead said we are lucky to have it, wf is a prime example of people messing with newbies for financial gain.....

    Heh, someone will scam

    Then he will make x other accounts, and scam again

    SO the theory that the sh*t stays out...is overrated


    I'm not even interested in looking at the shitlist because I know I will not do any business with anybody ( except my own ones in the future/ helping people here on the forum and buying softwares )
