    Haha, a good read for any BHW member that has time on their hands while they're making automated income.

    I enjoyed this a lot. It's giving me some ideas on how to get free work done, lol :) and get paid at the same time!

    That's not blackhat, that's just plain outright scam!!! :) But that title really put a smile on my face.
    While we're at it. I don't mean to hijack your thread or anything :) but I found this on reddit today:
    What's the best scam you've ever pulled? : AskReddit
    one of the more interesting things up there, ha-ha. There's even some guy talking about how he was cookie stuffing them

    It's way better than scam because both parts end up happy. It's gain-gain!

    You are just giving them what they want. They are receiving value!

    In scam, the other person, sooner or later, will notice that he's losing and will probably be mad and may take vengeance.

    "Paint the fence" is what most of those web 2.0 sites are all about... yahoo answers, youtube, wikipedia, Mozilla apps, forums...

    The queen and the worker bees. What you want to be? :D

    I put a smiley face there in the end. How come noone knows when I'm not being serious? Story of my life.
    As for all this thing of ours (I'm being serious now), have you ever asked yourself how the internet would look if everyone couldn't just make it into their own personal cash machine? If you wanted to buy anything, google would have a list of actual stores where you could buy it, with prices, reviews and everything all in one place. We might just see that once semantic web comes around. This white hat affiliate stuff is actually the most unnecessary stuff there is. And wouldn't be nice if you could just watch a video on youtube without being flashed by some random urls that clearly have nothing to do with the video itself? Or having a question answered without someone promoting an aff link? Or perhaps even meeting a girl of your dreams on craigslist without even having a credit card :)

    By the way... I think that one of the causes of failure of Google Answers was that they paid for the answers:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/30/technology/30google.html

    There was also a social psychology research where they gave subjects nothing, 1 dollar and 50 dollars to people do some tasks... maybe It can explain the "paint the fence" from a scientific perspective... I'll post it soon
