    i will soon be investing in a jr.vip membership, i have been searching here and there and someone anti-blackhat told me to stay away from this site in total because they distribute stolen software. what i mean is that they give away cracked programs in the vip forums and such. i totally love this community, the positive sides, i believe blackhat means bending the law not breaking it . Because of this im worried about where my $97 goes to. i dont want to be supporting this act directly. i dont want my money to used in such a manner. so can someone please help me out and tell me where my money will be used. Will my money be used to help this act or for other stuff. or am i simply mistaken about the whole thing, does bhw support stolen or is it simply unethical users who post it up.


    Sorry is anything is wrong im kinda ocd...so yeaa...

    IF YOUR GUNA SAY SOMETHING OF NO USE SAVE YOUR TIME AND MINE BY NO POSTING ANYTHING !!!

    Most of the money goes to the blue pixels, they're more expensive to produce computationally.

    Your money goes towards keeping this community alive. The people that share cracked software, themes, etc... do it because they are within thier rights under creative commons and other laws. Although I'm not a lawyer or anything, that's how I understand it and I'm sure someone will chime in more educated than I on the subject.

    Also having a Jr. Vip membership entitles you to less saturated methods of making money and better deals on services that reputable members of this forum provide. I have made more than my money back because of this by donating.

    It's a good choice and you wouldn't have to worry about the things this site allows because its on the owners hands not yours.

    Welcome to the club if ya join :)

    The Money goes to hosting support, and lot other things to develop such a big forum. Blackhatworld are not supplier of crack world.

    It is just world of hot marketing people, who want to make money quick. Jr. vip membership is for getting hidden secrets of money making.

    There is no BHW sponsored software cracking program going on here if that's what you were getting at. Everything shared is done so by the users.

    Hosting/Site maintenance costs. BHW is a sharing community..$97 is a very small payment for what you are getting here.

    Your money goes to the starving children of Blackhatters who are now
    serving time in the federal penitentiary for distributing stolen software. :D

    But seriously, it goes to support the many costs of keeping a forum of
    this size running.

    Although I do agree that SOME of the $97 donations go towards operating expenses, I'd also like to point out that a lot of that money is PROFIT for the site owners.

    And more power to them for running such a fantastic site that generates profit.

    If you read the red text on the donation page:
    Please note that this payment is NOT for Jr. VIP status.

    How does one go about a Jr. VIP status, though?

    I do believe what their saying is that its not like you can only pay 97 USD
    and become a jr vip.

    You must have the following

    1) 100 Post or more.
    2) Have been a member for 90 Days or more.
    3) Donor Status.

    So as you can see it takes some more than just plain donating.

    Also your not responsible for what the owners or operators do with your donation.
    And I am sure they put it to good use. ;)

    can someone just clairfy that is this also present on the download page in the vip forums, im reffering to the statement that says, "share what you have rights to " that way i will be put to rest that bhw itself doesnt do all this instead its the members

    It is a donation and no one is forcing you to make one. It is used for maintaining the forum.
