Will the do not share list eventually kill the downloads?

    Well, I was going to post a new wso I bought and I look at the DNS list and its bloody MASSIVE and the wso owner is on the list. So my cynical thinking since I first heard of the list was how ironic that the list even exists. But Ive notice a steep decline in quality in the downloads area lately and also an increase in removing stuff from the public area and into the various VIP areas.
    So, the list will only get bigger and as the word spreads, every dog and his woman will know about bhw and put themselves ont he dns list. I think it would be good if it didnt even exist, what do others think?

    It would be nice if it didn't exist but it does exist and it needs to exist. There are people
    and companies with enough clout to take action against the board and its owners. Also
    there are longstanding contributing members of this board that own some of the products
    on the DNS list. Most of them will offer discounts to BHW members as well.
    I know there are some people who only join BHW to put their products on the DNS list and
    never contribute again but that's life. I'm pretty sure the owners and admin of BHW know
    who and who not to have on the DNS list and I hope they take a contribution off those
    who do not participate on the board.

    I wonder how sites like vault get away with releasing everything that ever comes out then? I can see it getting smalelr and smaller, especially with wsos and stuff as more and more people become aware of it.

    It has to exist.. If you create a product and you are an active member here, do you want us to put your product here for free ? I don't think so.

    Just join the vault. Maybe they should make it where you have to have a certain post amount to be able to put your wso on the dns list. I don't know. Make the amount small enough where it's not that hard to achieve but large enough to where you have to be somewhat a participating member. :**********:

    Yeh they should have some rule like that. joining the vault is not as easy as just joining it, its easier to get a date with jessica alba than getting into the vault, lol.

    I have no problem with a dns list. What I would like to see is a more organized and concise review compilation of some kind. I know that sort of thing can be manipulated, but there has to be some sort of checks and balances for the enormous amounts of crap out there.

    Most WSO's and even many IM products in general are absolute shit. If it's not rehashed and stolen from other places then it's an old and outdated method. Genuinely good products are 1 out of a thousand. It would be nice for noobs to not waste their money on pointless shit. Although, I suppose someone might not share that opinion if they are the ones profiting off the noobs.

    With DL moderators like WizGizmo and Peter2002 you can bet your ass the DNS list will never kill off the downloads section.

    Im not talking about valid regular members having their shit shared, I'm talking about people from warrior forum or dp releasing a wso and then just getting there name on the dns list.
    @Flurbuff, have to agree, cant remember the last good thing Ive fond anywhere to be honest, can you suggest anything decent?

    Many of the items on the DNS are there because authors have issued a DMCA Takedown Order. If we did not comply with that, the forum could be in a lot of hot water (like being shut down for instance).

    Also, many of our members are authors of WSO's and other products. I am sure it doesn't mean squat to those of you who are not authors yourself, but you would understand it better if it was your product that was being shared.

    Therefore, the DNS will never be removed.

    End of story . . .

    Hey here is my response.
    The DNS HAS to exist... For example as said previously many of the products there are made by bhw members who are active participants in the community. For example Sweetfunny or w/e her nick is. She released scrapebox, she made a special BHW discount and gives you guys ALOT of support here in the forums, and also there is another problem the DMCAs which the forum has to abide for.
    I preffer to have this forum up and running instead of a copy of the newest WSO containing rehashed bullshit :) Which one do you choose ?

    When I first found BHW I was overwhelmed with the information and shares,
    I downloaded everything thinking I would find the magic bullet. However after
    a while I realised I was going round in circles trying CPA, CL posting, ewhoring
    ect. Then I decided to stick on one subject and master it which was SEO because once you master that everything else falls into place.
    I combined that with my direct marketing experience and found my place in
    the offline market which in itself is a niche. I also take time to learn the skills
    that I outsource so I know what I am asking people to do and how it fits in with my business.
    The download section has enabled me to learn a variety of skills without the expence.
    However with mastering those skills you become to realise how much junk is
    sold to the unsuspecting everyday, so I don't know if the download section isn't as good as it was or am I just becoming more knowledgeable.
    I actually now search the DNS list to look for the golden nuggets rather than the download section.
