Paul Myers wins war on Backlink Spam

13 replies
Since the announcement of the new rule enforcement I've spent a few minutes scanning page one of the WSO forum each morning and evening. And every time there's always been a couple of clearly questionable WSOs that made me go, "How are they still there?"

Until this morning!

So congratulations on a fantastic job well done Paul. The WSO board is now completely free of Backlink Spam offers

For everyone else that commented how they wished the thank you button was available at the time Paul made the announcement. It is now, so go thank him and show how much you appreciate his hard work.

    Yea, I scanned the WSO section a few days ago and it was looking much better. I actually found something good to spend more money on.

    Andy,

    It's good to see a positive post on the topic. ;-)

    The "clean up" doesn't just effect the WSO Forum, there
    has also been a great deal of progress in eliminating crap
    from the SEO, Links Swap and other parts of the forum.

    It's an ongoing process.

      Actually I get the impression that its business as usual in the SEO section. This is still pretty common -

      But like you said its a process and its going to take alot of reeducation.

        Is you see stuff that's questionable, hit the report button to alert the mods. They can't possibly catch it all themselves.

          Well as Andy knows I am trying to do more than just get threads deleted. Its about reeducation not just cutting people off. Besides you'd have to report just about every other thread. That was an example not an exception.

            Mike,

            Yeah, baybee. That's what we need!

            The mods can clean things up to a pretty large extent, but it's a permanent holding action without this kind of thing. Help from the members in teaching people that there are ways that work and don't require screwing with someone else's business.

            Thank you, sir!

            Say thanks to the nice man, folks...

    Well said.

    Here's another way folks can thank Paul for all his hard work:

    Buy Paul a Beer

    And thanks to all the mods who work hard every day to keep the forum clean and tidy (most of them keep a pretty low profile).

    Cheers,
    Becky

    I agree with you Wendy. I am also one of those who has been watching the back and forth uproar without comment. Mostly because all of the good stuff was said already, and I didn't want to chime in saying "me too!"

    But I have to say, I am really excited about the direction the mods are taking. It will make this a better place for all of us, and a safer place for newbies. If you think about it, new internet marketers come to the Warrior Forum to learn how they SHOULD do things. Learning methods that violate TOS and harm other people's sites is not what we should be teaching them.

    Thank you Paul, Allen and everyone else who works to keep the WF clean.

    That is great news. Something needed to be done.

    But I apparently missed it. Can someone please tell me where this announcement is located?

    Probably very obvious somewhere but I looked around just now and didn't see it.

      I've seen improvement in the entire forum - and especially in the WSO section.

      Was there any doubt Paul would win? Nope.

    Thank you, Paul, for ridding the weeds cluttering the beautiful garden that is the Warrior Forum. Pat yourself on the back, take a night off and go do something you really enjoy - you deserve it.
