    I've noticed that a LOT of guys posting in the black/white sections are pretty darn new... like if you see a guy who's been here for more than a year it's rare. Why is that?

    Because IM is attractive to the eye. When you hear those stories or watch those landing pages of people making a bunch of money while doing almost nothing that appeals to almost everyone.

    People come and people go, you see a lot of people get interested in IM but few succeed or produce income better than a regular day job. So people are constantly coming into and leaving IM!

    At least that's my take on it.

    Or could it mean that people just come here to learn and once they know some valuable secretes they darned well aren't gonna go telling them so they stop posting until they stop making money?

    Or maybe there's a lot of quick buck guys and scammers who think this is a ripe place to find marks?

    Either way it's very odd... usually you have "old guys" who've been on any forum for 5-10 years. This is VERY unusual for a forum, unless the forum itself is new... is it?

    Many of the new posters are lurking in the cloaking section..
    Two posts and they are experts..:)
    I got to give them some credit..most of them cannot read..or think..
    I have even answered a question and then had some retard pm me telling me my post has been answered and if I understood the answer..WTF
    They cannot even tell the difference between a question and an answer..!!!
    And a few were berating people for flippant answers..yet they were too busy to answer questions themselves..
    Now I stay away from there..
    And blocked pm`s.:D

    In regards to your wondering why there are few veterans around here, I think most don't like to put up with the endless spood feeding requests we're pestered with here.

    Aswell as once people have learned the methods, read and read, they just build their empires then leave and ejoy their success.

    This is not a difficult game to play, once you know the basics you can simply continue to earn money with various tweaks forever. You don't need to participate in this forum constantly to keep earning. I'm sure there are a lot of oldschool people who have just lurked for years as well.

    That may be, but that's gonna happen in any forum like this. I know I did (and occasionally do still) ask questions that many vets here already know.

    Maybe creating a section JUST for basic seo questions would help that problem?

    I will say it is directly related to the job situation and people have learned that if their main source of employment can evaporate at any time without notice why not do it yourself.

    1) Because the experienced or older members are busy implementing the methods to earn more.

    OR

    2) We, the senior members, gave up.
