    Ok this is getting pretty old now.

    Keep all discussion in BST threads related to the product being sold.

    These users have paid for their threads and dont need you talking about stuff that has nothing to do with what they are trying to sell, like how you dont like the color of their text for example.

    Also dont come in saying that you have something better than them, if this is the case, buy your own BST thread.

    I will give this a few days for everyone to read after that all thread hijacks will result in a temporary ban.

    Thanks :)

    STOP ASKING IF THEY PAID FOR THE THREAD

    If its viewable in BST then some mod reviewed it and allowed it in!

    weren't some of the questions referring to a limit that was supposed to be in place re the value of goods

    I was sure I saw it as well, BUT no way I would post it in someones thread when they are selling UNLESS I was going to buy.

    some legit questions re price as far as I could see but in the wrong section(thread)

    exactly raise those questions somewhere else. In this case an exception was made.

    **EDIT** Fuck! Why do I have the bad luck of not making my post before WP chimes in and ruins shit.**EDIT**

    I'm the one who raised the question concerning the $500 limit. In retrospect I can agree that I was wrong to raise the question in Jaeden's thread and will send a PM of appology to him shortly.

    Let me make it clear:

    I have NO desire to detract from anyone's thread (BST or otherwise) and certainly am not the type to try and "police" the forum. I asked the question out of astonishment because I thought that Harro's word here was absolute. The statement that he made was in his "I am back from the dead" thread.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/15092-i-am-back-dead.html

    I'm sure you can see how this might confuse some of us as to the rules pertaining to BST.


    In any event, I am not ashamed to admit my mistakes and am grateful to Havok for setting me straight.

    Wp how is it not hijacking?

    It deverts attention AWAY from the sale and towards you... Send him a PM or something but he chose to market it how he did.. Let him market it that way

    It's easy to be confused about the price limit, as we don't really have anything set in stone at the moment.

    If your product kicks ass and you know it, then you can afford to post in any font color you want. It has nothing with being smart or not.

    While we're discussing readability, WP, I usually have a hard time reading those fancy titles that some of your threads have!

    (OOPS! Did I just hijack the Hijack Warning Thread? :p )

    the price limit at the moment seems to be based on the review of the product/services.

    witch makes perfect sense, as it all depends on so many factors.

    anyways the moral of the story is stay on topic !! lol

    it hard to stay on topic, as we all respond to the next person so once one person falls off, it's a train reck

    Your wrong. The buy/sell/trade forum is a place for buyers and sellers to meet and do business, it is not a place for informal discussion. Your post about colors has absolutely nothing to do with the product, the only purpose it derives is to draw attention away from the product being sold. Thus, your post is indeed hijacking.

    Like I said, everyone was right to question the price, as we did have a $500 limit temporarily put in place. It's been raised to $1000 in certain cases, but we're still working on getting something concrete put in place.

    But just for those that do not know, a thread cannot go "live" in the BST without first being manually approved by a mod/admin. So if you see the thread in the BST, it's been approved.
