Hy, the reason why I am writing this thread is that I have felt that something is going on in the world of IM, which does not suite - yeah, I know that now im going to get bombarded with posts stating that "Oh well, get the f*ck away from it", but the problem is that people are forgetting what is Black Hat and how we should think about karma, especially newbies. I noticed this about 3 months ago, when I saw threads appearing every day with following titles: How to get Your competitor banned from SERP How to get Your competitor banned from AdSense/AdWords/Youtube ETC This is exactly what makes me mad - for me Black Hat is always been a way to show others that you are clever not that you can ban/kill the competition! Exactly Black Hat equals clever to me! This shows that you can choose the shorter road and balance yourself on the line of TOS to achieve something. It means, you are a person who has enough brain power and lucrative ideas to succeed. For example - you can spend 5 hours a day, talking nasty and busting your ass to get some sign ups with eWhoring, but a true Black Hat user, would think a new twist to it, maybe outsource it or what ever, but he would end up spending maybe only 15 minutes to earn the same amount of money and never has to actually talk to those guys... Unfortunately now things have gone out of hands, and people ESPECIALLY NEWBIES, who chase each and every coin. They will go through hell and high water, to just collect this $0.1 AdSense earning, but unfortunately this means that they will do ANYTHING to trash someones other living. No i am not talking about winning SERP over his page or bidding over him on AdWords or etc, this is always a good sports and is OK, but those new things that I have been hearing... The sad part is that, those youngsters jump head first into this, get their competitors adsense or etc blocked and then see that they only make 0.1$ more than before, because their ad is still below the fold or somewhere else. This said - I believe that for each action there is a reaction and that karma does exist. Maybe this guy earned so-so from this - maybe $500/month, which helped him to pay his car loan, but now you screwed him.. Imagin this being you? How does it feel then huh? So please keep your karma clean and PLEASE, be a good sport BHW!! I hope that I wont get hammered for this thread and I hope it is not too long or too hard to follow, but I just needed to get this out in the open to see, if I really think too old school... But i do believe that all newbies and persons who are taking their venture here, should read it!
