    Well, even though this forum stands for blackhat, basically, it's "underground" forum, one would say that someone from BHW is going to screw you up or you are going to end up screwing up someone else.. just to make some money..

    actually... ---------------------------------



    this forum is the most honest, the most helpful, the one and probably the only one who is not based on false promises.. unlike many other forums/sites/"moneymaking" skype grups etc etc out there.. :p

    I was already warming up my counter arguments, but then I realized you weren't here to disrespect the place, but instead give credit to it where it deserves it. Good job mate, and I do agree with you.

    Even if somebody here on BHW is trying to screw you over, there are many experience and helpful IMers to give you advice, many people opening shitlists on the scammers and good old OldSalt delivering justice with his mighty ban hammer and super cool nerves.

    I've had the misfortune to frequent another so called blackhat forum recently and it is just abysmal. Everyone is an SEO guru, some of the posts look like they are trying for the Pullitzer prize and there is a lot of comparing dick sizes.

    I just did, deal with it!

    Also, I am currently behind seven VPNs, two highly anonymous proxies, locked in to my apartment, barricaded the door and browsing BHW from under my bed. OldSalt will never find me.

    This is the BEST IM forum hands down. People here try to help eachother and are very knowledgeable. Plus, the mods don't tolerate the guru crap that occurs at other forums. Whenever people ask me how to make money online I always tell them to join.

    It's funny because when I fist started on here, I was visiting it from my place of employment - a ship at sea. After several months I got called into a very uncomfortable meeting as to why I was visiting this 'awful site that was full of hackers and thieves'. I was pretty new here at the time, but I still fought against what they were claiming - but they still blocked the site saying it was a danger to the network for me to visit it. Obviously, I couldn't win that battle.

    Now, years later, I wish I could go back to those very people and tell them that now I KNOW that we don't condone fraud, hacking or other illegal activity because now I am one of the people that keep it that way.

    Oh well, some people make judgements without all of the facts, the rest of us know better.

    Great post Shanna_doll!

    its safe as long as you keep it public. PM or skype however is a different story. Not always always a scam but you should be a little paranoid.

    This forum certainly does have more candid people than other forums and websites on the Internet. I've only ever been stiffed once on this forum (possibly twice if a client I meant on here doesn't pay by the end of today. They haven't been returning any of my messages). Aside from that, all of my other interactions with the forum members have been positive which is why I'm an active member here. :D

    i expected the same, but "black hat" does not mean "a den of backstabbing thieves".
    however that would be a fairly accurate description of google...

    :D
