    Hi guys, lately I have witnessed the way people get banned here.

    There rep, itrader score doesn't matter too, long time members
    with great reputation only to have something up funny up their
    sleeves.

    This is making it difficult for many to know who to deal with.

    Great job moddy for consistently separating the wheat from the chaff.

    I noticed all the bans while reading old threads. I'm just curious what are most of these people doing to get banned?

    Most were trying to game the system other than the obvious of being an asshole.

    LOL me too..
    Sometimes those mistakes can be unintentional too. So, would you just judge that person as a bad person because he didn't know the rule? I guess not :)

    If you're too open they will take a shit on you, laugh at you and move on. In life the real friends can be counted on one hand, sometimes on both.

    I got a black hat method for you:

    1. Find a black hat forum.
    2. Build up rep (invest money in the account if possible)
    3. Scam the 40+ yr old family guy who lost his job and heard "you can make money online"

    the end.

    Or tossing the baby out with the bath water as I'm seeing done more and more lately.

    The forum is going through some serious growing pains. I'm mostly a spectator these days, keeping my head low to avoid all the shrapnel flying about.

    Conversations and posts I've seen for the 2-1/2 years I've been here are now a ban or infraction without warning. Some say the changes are for the better, others might say otherwise.

    I'll save the rest of my opinions for my friends on Skype as I know they won't be welcome here. Don't judge a person because he mysteriously disappeared or received a recent ban from BHW.

    I've found some seriously fun money making projects to replace all the time I used to spend on here. I'm sure other aged members have done the same.

    We all have opinions, this is just mine.

    I understand some of the things you said and many of them
    are true like the growth problem..

    Maybe they should be a little hard on users, instead
    of lifetime ban for several of the offenses, they could
    be long term ban or great restrictions.

    The rules are definitely getting stricter and the number of members being banned is increasing but so is the size of the forum. The moderators do a great job to keep the place clean and you're right this isn't like many other forums where there is a bias towards the more reputable members. After being a member in a few other places that's what makes BHW really stand out; the staff know when to be strict and when to have a laugh.

    If you break a rule, you're punished - no matter who you are.

    Some of the stuff I just read in this thread is total BS. Speaking for myself I have been way more lenient on members the past year or more than I have in the past. I am not even sure the last time Iv'e even banned a member.

    Firstly, I don't have to explain my actions or the actions of my fellow staff members here. But saying that we just outright ban members with no warning and giving them no reason is utter bullshit. We have a system and a member gets fair warnings about his offences before he is banned. So when he is banned he knew it was coming. And we always give a member a reason why he is being banned while he is being banned.

    If you don't like the direction this forum is going either do something about it or fuck off! There are members who stand and ask for change and most of them lead by example and do something about it. And we, the staff, notice this and try to help the cause.

    (Ends rant. sparks cigarette. Calls a beautiful woman up to come suck me off.)
