    As I was building backlinks, one of the forums suspended my account and sent me this warning.

    "You appear to be a spammer and we have shut down your account. Good luck paying those spam fines"

    Should I be worried? I wasn't even doing postings, just dumping my links in my profile page.

    lol yes you should be scared maybe they report your site to google. Sanbox / penalize? Maybe.

    Lession learned: never spam your whitehat site. Spam your orphan/web2.0/article links sites instead :p

    If you had only one link and you you created only one account at this forum from your IP then there is nothing to worry about. You can even send them an email and ask them how you were spamming. :) Tell them that you just wanted to read their forum.

    write back saying how you're sorry, and you were jus following the directions from a post on digitalpoint to earn $1,000,000 a day.

    The whole internet's spam, the world and life itself is spam most of the time. For some reason, people like to think they are above that, with their 'forums' where they send out mass pms and newsletters, and harvest email addresses and 'recommend' products *cough* aff link here *cough*. Sure, some spam is more greasy than other spam, but I wish people would get off their self-righteous high horses, with their "good luck paying those spam fines". I mean wtf. Fine for creating a profile page with some links on? Oh please...! You get fined for parking badly on a road, not for putting a link on a forum. Scaretactics.

    Who did they report to? First posting and registering on forums is legal, the only spam that is illegal is email, so no worries there. Also if to google you still have nothing to worry about, as google only deals with sites that recieve a ton of spam reports, and don't have the time to check every website, and they are not any type of authority. You don't have to worry about spam fines. I would say just don't visit that website again.

    Altho there are no fine for spamming, They can report you to your affiliate for spamming and your affiliate may pull your account. Craigslist has started advising people to do just that so I think it's catching on. Just make sure you read your affiliates TOS's before spamming.

    Spam Fines, that's funny. I'm shaking in my boots. That's one email I would ignore. If you're really worried just put them on your blacklist so you don't post to their forum.

    If you are going to be hit with spam fines you should expect the following:

    Interpol will investigate.
    BHW will send several high level members to speak with you.
    Your laptop will start to smoke.
    Your girlfriend will dump you.
    The taxing agent in your country will audit you.
    Your dick will shrivel.

    Other than that you are golden.

    It sounds like they're a little over exuburant with their threats lol. I would just make sure not to post any links to them in the future and be done with it.
