    You don't know how to use the search button. You don't know how to use your brain. You are easy to blame something else but yourself.

    If I struck a nerve with you then you are the one that should read this.

    Do You Think You Are The First One With Your Question? Think Again.
    These days a lot of people on here are asking questions about ScrapeBox. Fine, everybody has questions at some point in time.
    Don't ask the questions though. Use the search button.
    Do you REALLY believe that out of all the thousands of ScrapeBox users not one person had the same question you are having? Your question has been asked before, multiple times even. It has been answered multiple times too.
    If not, try to figure it out yourself.
    How do you expect to get knowledgeable by being spoonfed?

    The Early Days Of ScrapeBox
    Myself and a lot of other have been SB users since day one. Back then there was nobody to ask questions to. Back then the software was not as refined as it is now. Back then we had a lot more and harder questions and lot less support then you do now.
    It is by taking whatever information already publicly available and applying it to our situation that made us knowledgeable.
    It is by beating on the software for hours and hours at a time that we gained knowledge and got results.
    There was nobody to ask questions to.
    So PLEASE, for the love of everything that is money, use your brain and the search function for once.

    Also, don't think you have some right to support from the public. Don't think because someone is knowledgeable on some topic they owe you information or their time. And certainly don't even try to be disrespectful to someone that is offering you help and support.

    Don't think I am just hating on you, in fact I spend more than an hour per day answering questions on ScrapeBox that can easily be answered by using the search function or the brain function. And not ONCE have I been disrespectful to any one. And not ONCE have I not agreed to help. And not ONCE have I asked or accepted any compensation for it.
    Think about that before you decide to leave a comment.

    Nice. Unfortunately however, only 5% of the population have the mental capacity to understand the "trail blazer" mindset. That is why the 95% make most of the money! Lazy people = PROFIT!

    Well put Maruk.

    I laugh a little when I see a couple threads stacked on top of each other that are asking almost the same question lol.

    Most people are lazy and would rather ask before looking. When I don't know something, I tend to search around for the answer rather than just ask lol.

    I can't stress how much we needed this post :). We should keep this on call in bookmarks, that way every time a idiotic question is asked about ScrapeBox, we can just post the link and job done, rather than saying "Use the search tool, there's been a tonne of posts before yadayadayada".

    That is also definitely true. That is the exact reason why there are so many products with titles like 'Make $10,233,212 in just 2 hours per week' and all that. It is the exact reason for the FTC crackdown. People like I described above are looking for exactly those kinds of product but won't put in the work because they are too lazy and then they complain and blame everything around them but themselves. (Although a lot of those products are crap in the first place of course)


    I used to chuckle a little bit as well but lately (since the start of my SB casestudy thread) I keep getting numerous PMs with those questions and people adding me on Yahoo to abuse me as their own personal customer support or something. And I just can't say No to them but it is starting to piss me off royally to the point of not sharing crap anymore on this board and just keep doing me. Ugh.

    More than being clueless most people are just lazy. You're right about the search button but it's not just SB. How many thread do we see on a daily basis asking how do I make money? You just joined a site about making money. The order should be read, search, read some more and then ask questions. Necessary post!

    Maruk, you are missing a golden opportunity here. You get lots of similar questions => make a FAQ and point these people to it. You can monetize it if you wish like using aff links, making a book and so on. Or just use the flood of traffic to make the site hosting that FAQ popular.

    There are 2 types of forums. Type one relies on popularity and tens of thousands of members, type 2 relies on concise, short discussions and only thousands of members. It is up to the board owner, the members can only choose where to be active and that's it. It's like walking into a store and throwing a fit over them selling tabloids.

    No disrespect dude, but Yes stupid Noob questions are irritating at best.

    But people posting Stupid Threads, Bitching about Stupid Noobs posting Stupid Threads is just as dumb... and a waste....

    There's a ton of these Threads already, do a SEARCH :p

    You can easily sort out those "questions" and bypass them if you so choose..... just an idea....

    I agree about the lazy thing.
    I also think there is one more reason why so many basic questions are asked. I think a lot of people has no confidence in themselves. That's why I like the answer that is often given: just try it.
    I have been a functional design coach for many years. And many times a student asked me something, my 1st answer was: what do you think yourself? You would be amazed how many time they knew the right answer.

    lol i see this thread is pointed to a certain somebody. I hope he gets banned for something real soon.

    i am still a noob and before i found BHW, i spent months on IM and not earning a dime. BHW has been awsome to me and i have been guilty by posting some noob threads in the past. what i find difficult is the search button will yeild tons and tons of threads , some not even related to my question but has a keyword here and there. but majority of the time i can find what i am looking for.

    i find it quite easy to send a private msg to someone taht i find that is knowledgeable on the subject. obviously i am greatful and thank the guy from the bottom of my heart. i would only do this if i cant find what i am looking for in the search button.

    tryed yahoo answers as well. it works great.

    Long Live BHW!!!

    I personally hate posts like this, its a load of crap. In the begginning I went to the last post and tried to start learning about the art of black/white hat. Even then in posts that go back a few years it was the same motherfuckers talking about how wonderful the search is. Half of the time people don't even take the time to freaking tag their posts, and so searching for it is irrelevant.

    I don't think the noobies are to fucking lazy to 'search' I think the oldfags are to fucking high and mighty and maybe even lazy to fucking give away some freaking real knowledge. Talk about annoying. Jesus get real, also the #360 has no exclusives. If you ever have been to ***** then I'm sure you know what I am trying to >imply.

    It is not only about the threads. It is also the fact that I get about 5-10 PMs per day and the same amount of questions on Yahoo.
    I am not a very known member here so I can only imagine what really reputable members must go through.

    I agree, a lot has to do with confidence. I was an Army sergeant and whenever did an exercise with my guys on whatever topic I would ask the exact same question. They KNOW what the right answer is but they are not confident enough (yet) to just make a decision and stick with it.

    Is that right? Let me tell you, by calling certain people 'motherfuckers' you just lost ALL your credit with me.
    The (advanced) search function does not work based solely on tags so you argument is invalid.
    Also, if you suggest I am an 'oldfag' and that I think I am 'high and mighty' and am 'too lazy to fucking give away some real knowledge' then I suggest you read the last paragraph of my OP and do your homework.
    The fact that you didn't do exactly that, puts you in the category my OP was intended for.

    I would have to agree with Maruk. I see a post at least once a day with a stupid question that could be found easily by using the search button. If people are too lazy to research, then they shouldn't be here in the first place.
