    Is it just me or are all the "gurus" (read: people with over 2,000 posts) there ignorant cocks? They always seem to have a "better-than-thou" attitude and their advice is most of the time just shitty. Also people over there are obsessed with building a list. If I did a KW density check for "money is in the list" it would be like 95%. Also, I especially hate people that sign off their post with shit like

    "To Your Success" or some dumb shit like that when their post just bashed another reply. Ahh sorry I just had to rant. That place just makes me RAGE!

    90 percent of the "WSO"s are complete bullshit.

    A method that could be summed up in three sentences, 5 videos explaining why the method is super special awesome, and thirty pages telling us why the author is the greatest guru with the biggest balls ever.

    Oh, and another 20 pages begging for opt in/buying another product.

    Yeah, it seems like a forum full of sheep searching for direction from their shepherds.

    yeah..there is some good information there if youre into pure white hat, but other than that its pretty pointless. Props to the owner for creating that forum though, the noobs selling wsos are making him a fortune.

    That is a perfect metaphor for it. There are literally thousands of people there buying crappy products from the same 10 or 20 people.

    That is totally true. Those people are usually the post whores that have been there since pre-internet era and have 3 billion post counts. What gets on my nerves is they are always quick to point it out to you too if you disagree with their advice.

    I post there too but it is heavily right-wing conservative American centric.

    I have no problem with that but BHW is a much more laid back, no bullshit and international place.

    Some guy on there posted for support for a Warrior whose grandmother was in ill health. I don't really see how that is relevant on a marketing forum.

    If it was the guy, OK. But his grandmother? Nobody except the guy in person has a relationship with her.

    I love the place... selling a WSO over there rocks!

    Don't be hater... learn to use what is out there to generate revenue instead of bitching about sites and your revenue stream will not only get more balanced but you'll also make more money.

    Yes . . . And they already have a shepherd, His name is Allen Says (The owner of WF). Interestingly enough, he wrote an essay called "Marketing To The Herd". I created a PDF from it. You can download it below:

    He definitely understands the "herd" mentality. He's busting a gut laughing ALL the the way to to the bank(s). :D

    There is ten times better information on this forum. I used to hang out there a bit and it just seemed to be so much misinformation. On top of that, the mention of anything BH would get a ton of haters. I used to get into arguments over there with people who hated me because I posted a thread on how to post on CL.

    Ultimately I was banned from there by Allen for posting someones WSO in the members download section here. LOL!!


    Mahhh....

    I have an account there with just a few posts as people were not too nice to me when I made suggestions.

    I might mention something like using Scrapebox to find footprints for something to speed thing up and everyone would then call me a spammer over and over even though I never mentioned using the tool for mass blog commenting.

    The users that post all the time are WAY too reactionary to things and don't think for themselves much of the time.

    UGH... it's a sucky form. I'm glad I found this one.

    It's also funny how a lot of the biggest contributors don't seem to be making any money. Anyone else notice that?

    Well, that's what Scrapebox is basically used for - right? Spamming. What did you expect them to think over there. Surely you don't really think they were going to believe you are using SB for other than a spamming tool. LOL

    They're just a weird bunch over there these days, tho. You just can't take it personal. Most of them just WISH they could do as well as many here do.

    I was mentioning some of the scraping and tools in it besides the spammer to get something done that someone started a thread on. Even without the blog poster it's a great piece of software for many tasks. That was my point.
