Be Aware Of Your Warrior Forum Posts!

Be aware of your warrior forum posts!

If you provide too much value or gain too much traffic to it, your post can get moved to a topic where it basically won't be seen!

I have made a few posts that have either NEVER showed up after being held in moderation, or after it received lots of traffic and replies, it got moved to a basically hidden topic where it died.

I PAID to become a member of this forum! They didn't mind at all taking my money! And so when I post something in the PROPER category and it never shows up after being held in moderation that pisses me off!

And I don't even get an explanation! AT ALL! Not a PM, not an email, NOTHING!

EXAMPLE:

Yesterday I made a post where I was giving away 50 brand new PLR ebooks for 2011! No optin at all! The direct download to the zip file was in the actual post! And other posts in the same damn section were giving away the same types of products. Ebooks!

My post never showed up in the topic! And no one ever sent me a message to tell me why! And I made another post in the same thread accusing them of discrimination just like I AM IN THIS POST!

We will see how long it takes for them to delete it! It doesn't matter! I am taking a screenshot of this post after it is published! So if they delete this post, I'll be making a blog post about this forum with proof that they do in fact discriminate!

    I assume you mean in the War Room? It takes time for threads to be approved. It doesn't happen right away.

    Yeah - they may get moved to the forum that is specifically made for the topic of your post, too. Gasp.

    To be precise, the post I am most aggravated about was yesterday morning in the War Room! But other posts have been moved or deleted just because they wanted to. No explanation. No nothing!

    Well, nobody paid anything to become member of this forum. The membership is free.

    Optionally, you can pay for becoming a War Room member. However, I don't think it gives you any other privileges than accessing the content inside that private forum.

    Yesterday was a holiday after all. Perhaps they are a bit behind? I sometimes see posts dissapear for no real reason.. but they have the right to randomly delete posts even if they are just bored.. its their forum. Don't worry about it.

      Discriminate against who? White mid-westerners? Have fun with that, sir.

      As has been mentioned, some threads require approval before they're posted. That is not instantaneous. The surest way to make certain they're not approved, by the way, is to start threads accusing people of malice because your posts haven't been approved yet.

      You're on the fast track to a bad rep, dude.

      I don't think that is it at all. You just seem to be throwing a tantrum like a 2-year-old. Instant gratification is nice but sometimes things take a little longer. Chill out.

    Sometimes it takes days. My post in the contest section took around 5 days. They get a lot of posts they have to sort through. If you look in the stickies in the War Room people are saying it often takes upwards of a week for their threads to get approved.

      If this thread is any indication of the value of your other threads then I know why they were deleted. I pay over $3000 a month to advertise here and even then some of my threads get deleted. But I certainly would NEVER whine about it on the open forum. You do realize the folks you are hoping to sell to one day are reading this thread too right?

      Keep in mind your War Room payment does not excuse or entitle one to make abusive posts which could affect your overall forum membership.

          Dude,

          (1) he's right, actually;

          (2) you're wrong, factually;

          (3) paying for War Room access (as many here do) doesn't exempt you from having to adhere to the rules, nor does it grant you immunity from being dealt with when you break them or otherwise make a nuisance of yourself. At this rate, you'll have a lot more to complain about if you carry on like you are doing and find yourself banned permanently.

          Heated debates are one thing, but childish arguments and outright slanderous remarks and insults (especially towards those who have the final say and/or who run the place, but also other members) usually don't end well.

          Why dig a hole when there's simply no need to?

          Just saying ...

      I guess I'm not understanding your complaint. You made a post in the War Room and it simply hasn't been approved yet? I didn't see anything that stated there was instant approval in there.

      I'm not really sure what the snarky responses are for though. After all this is a BUSINESS forum.

    The War Room doesn't approve every thread. Some get approved, some don't. If everything got approved automatically, it would just end up as another place that harvested nothing more than digital junk.

    There are a lot of gems in there that we would never see or know about if it was a complete free-for-all. I, for one, think it's for the best. The War Room was intended to help other Warriors out and "give back", not necessarily to really promote anything hardcore. That's what your signature and WSO section is for.

    The War Room membership is for two things:

    - Access to the forum itself
    - To give you the ability to publish a WSO

    There's no brainwashing going on over here. IMO, maybe you're overreacting a little much? If you're that upset, maybe you should consider grabbing a refund and jetsetting somewhere else. I'm sure Allen wouldn't mind :rolleyes:

      If we were averse to hearing your comments, we'd have deleted the thread. That's what I normally do when someone starts one of these. I leave one occasionally to remind people of why those things happen. You got lucky that someone deleted my most recent example.

      You've got a number of very senior members telling you the truth. They know from experience, where you simply have expectations. But I guess expectations mean sense, and experience implies cult status in your world?

      If I felt that way about a forum and it made me sick, I wouldn't come back.

      Oh and the reason you hear a lot about Google is on account of this being an IM forum.

      You have an opinion and are expressing it, the problem is, you decided to start off whinging like a baby as though your civil rights had been violated, then as soon as people didn't actually run along and agree with you, you made posts like the one I've highlighted.

      Now you're just being rude. Still each to their own, I hope your next forum lives up to your expectations.

      2) It doesn't surprise me that he eventually stopped posting (to this point, at any rate)...if you go back, he started to use more and more periods instead of exclamation marks. Obviously, he was tiring out.

      I initially started this thread to hear if anyone else was having the problem and it turned into a lynch mob against me! Everyone in the USA has the freedom of speech, but apparently in the Warrior forum people are so scared to be real and honest that it absolutely makes me sick. But I agree with you. I should have just contacted support instead of waking up the children of the corn!

        I can feel ya. Warroom is of course cool place and PLR download would be awesome share. So, just write to helpdesk, edit your post and repost in warroom so that all members here can access your contribution.

        If you were to READ the posts, you would see this isn't a lynch mob, but people explaining why your post hasn't shown up yet.

        If you have another complaint, feel free to actually tell us what it is so we can offer up an explanation, but so far you have only complained about your War Room posts which, as I said, can take up to a week to show up.

        Just because we do not agree with you does not mean we are not expressing freedom of speech. The warrior forum has become so popular because of people like me who shut up and get on in life instead of moaning and trying to flame up a thread. Why not just contact the helpdesk first off and then maybe complain? Instead you complain and then get really angry when people do not agree with you..... Maybe it is because we have our own minds and can use freedom of speech also?

          I do understand that you guys are all mostly followers who just follow the rules and keep your mouths shut like good little followers do. However, I like to speak my mind! And I will!

            When did I preach about the warrior forum? I mainly work off the warrior forum and have been very successful BECAUSE of the warrior forum so I have very good reason to 'follow' them as you call it.

            I have had threads removed etc but I contact the helpdesk and seek help....

              Please don't direct people to the help desk for thread deletions or stuff that's waiting on approval. That's not what it's for, and it will just slow Thomas down in doing what needs done. He's got quite enough to do there as it is.

                I am not meaning to redirect him instantly. What I mean is if he has such a problem that is causing him sooo much confusion, he should probably contact the helpdesk if it happens on many occasions to check where he is going wrong

                  I am not meaning to redirect him instantly. What I mean is if he has such a problem that is causing him sooo much confusion, he should probably contact the helpdesk if it happens on many occasions to check where he is going wrong

                  I didn't intend to start such a heated discussion! I honestly didn't think about contacting the help desk for this issue. I never imagined it would get carried away like this! All I stated was my opinion and then look what happened!

                    So he clearly broke the rules, and then HE sent me an infraction! For what? I haven't insulted anyone!
                    The rule he broke didn't insult anyone. You, on the other hand, have called anyone who disagreed with you a follower or cult member, and made a number of comments that would be considered insulting by most reasonable people.

                    Norb gave you some good advice. No-one will like everything that happens in any moderated forum, but you take the good with the bad, and remember that it's not your house. Trying to force things just makes it worse for you.

                    You didn't, by the way, simply state an opinion. You made weak threats and tried to use pressure to get your way. If this was the Internet Marketing Kindergarteners Forum, that might have worked.

                    Before you attack an entire group, you might stop to consider that they may well respond in kind.

                        Be that as it may, the group think is strong around here.
                        Translation: "If they agree with me, it's intelligent thinking. If they agree with others, it's group-think. Consensus is a meaningless word with no use in this or any other social context."

                          That was me.

                          You honestly think me calling you a troll, which incidentally is what childish behaviour like yours is called, even compares to the nonsense and rudeness you've displayed?

                          Hardly.

            You have your view, just as I have mine. The only one who has the answer is those who run and control this place. I come here to interact with other people who have the same interests as me, just like everyone else does. Not only that, but this forum has really helped me and thousands of others earn some good money over time.

            Some things in life aren't fair. You learn to pick and choose your battles. You are no more deserving than any other member on this board, so what makes you think that YOUR post should've been approved over the hundreds of others who most likely posted at the same time as you and have STILL not been approved (and may not be approved at all)? If you would've approached the situation like an adult, you probably wouldn't have received the responses that you did.

            Whether you like it or not, it is what it is. It's pretty much that way in all facets of life. Don't like how things are done somewhere? Then you have all the power to head the other direction. You have all of the "freedom in the world" to make that choice, and I don't think anyone is stopping you, really.

            I'm a follower? I've probably had more posts deleted than you will ever last in here to even make. As far as I can see from this little tantrum of yours - you serve as a great reminder to me why I never had kids.

            If you don't like the way it is here - go make your own forum. Simple as that. This isn't your house even if you paid for entry. You think because you buy a drink in a bar that they have to put up with your bratty fist pounding, name calling, and foot stomping?

            Whether you realized it or not - the name calling is losing you a LOT of business - just watch the reader count of this thread go up and your sales go down. Nobody likes a kid having a tantrum. Grow up and discuss your problem like business people do instead of a spoiled child. Maybe someone will give a rats ass. *wondering what trite little new idiocy he can think of to call me thinking I'll lose sleep because he's SPECIAL*

          With over 330,000 members and approaching 3.5 million posts, it's amazing to me that things go as smoothly here as they seem to do on the surface.

          I've had a few posts deleted, but I took it as a sign that it was me that was doing something wrong (i.e. posting in the wrong place, duplicating threads, etc.) as opposed to thinking that the mods were out to get me or that they were evil nazi *******s hell-bent on making my life hell.

          I can't comment on approval time for War Room threads, because I haven't submitted one there, but with the numbers in my first sentence, I'd be amazed it if took anything less than a week to get a post approved in there, and I'd be totally alright with that.

          One thing I've learned in my life, the hard way, is that the more grateful you are for the things that you do have, instead of bitching about what is wrong or what you'd don't have, the more the universe will align in your favor.

          Gratitude is an amazing thing, and I am very grateful for this resource and for the great, knowledgeable people that I have come across on this forum.

        This is a common misconception. There is no such thing as freedom of speech on the internet. If you don't believe me, just ask the porn industry.

        Regardless, when you signed up to this forum you had to read this.

        "To become a member of the Warrior Forum service you must read and accept all of the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms after you read this Agreement, you may not use the Warrior Forum service."

        There was plenty more, but that is all I copied for sanity's sake

        You break the rules or do something that doesn't gel within the overall community and you will see threads, posts, and the like disappear.

        You are bound to these terms and conditions. If you don't like it, you can leave. It's really that simple.

        Why start a topic in open forum if you don't want feedback or input from others? If you only wanted to start a revolt by anyone who'd ever had a thread deleted, you should have said that in your original post.

        You're right, peeps do have freedom of speech, so why shoot them down just because they don't agree with you?

      This is not good advice. The Help Desk is extremely busy with real problems, and in most cases he wasn't the one who deleted the thread, he has no idea who did delete the thread, and he doesn't have time to contact each mod individually to try and find out who deleted the thread and why.

      It's been explained over and over and over in various threads why the mods cannot hold everyone's hand and explain why threads and posts get deleted. This place is way too big and too busy.

    I PAID to become a member of this forum! They didn't mind at all taking my money! And so when I post something in the PROPER category and it never shows up after being held in moderation that pisses me off!

    And I don't even get an explanation! AT ALL! Not a PM, not an email, NOTHING!

    EXAMPLE:

    Yesterday I made a post where I was giving away 50 brand new PLR ebooks for 2011! No optin at all! The direct download to the zip file was in the actual post! And other posts in the same damn section were giving away the same types of products. Ebooks!

    My post never showed up in the topic! And no one ever sent me a message to tell me why! And I made another post in the same thread accusing them of discrimination just like I AM IN THIS POST!

    We will see how long it takes for them to delete it! It doesn't matter! I am taking a screenshot of this post after it is published! So if they delete this post, I'll be making a blog post about this forum with proof that they do in fact discriminate!

        I heard all the chatter from the crowd and came to watch the public hanging.

        I was afraid at first because I thought someone was getting a public whipping for having their threads deleted and moved... that's been happening to me for years.

        I was so relieved when I saw that this thread was really here for comical relief.

      Brian,
      Keep in mind your War Room payment does not excuse or entitle one to make abusive posts which could affect your overall forum membership.
      He seemed to miss the part where Matt mentioned spending $3000 a month here for advertising and still being subject to the same rules as others. He seems to think his $37 trumps those tens of thousands of dollars in ad revenues.

      Some day, people will figure out that the rules are independent of what one spends here.

        Ya! HAHA! Matt is the same guy that called me a blasphimous something or other a few minutes ago like a pissed of school girl and then deleted his post! Ya! I spend $1,000,000.00 a month in this forum! Believe me too?

          Actually, I deleted his post. Not him. He knows why. (Hint: It's that pesky 'rules' thing again.)

          I can see Matt's proof of spending in the number and frequency of WSO posts and bumps. Doesn't take much to spot that.

          Are you calling him a liar?

    We have a special place here for free ebooks. Yes, I know almost nobody goes there. Do you know why? Because NOBODY WANTS FREE EBOOKS.

    Shoving stuff where more people will see it without regard for whether they WANT to see it is basically what "spam" means.

      You haven't offended me because you couldn't if you really tried but if you look over your posts they are very troll like.

      To be honest, I'm surprised your still here.

          That you should be banned for being a troll. Which is what you are.

          "Still here" meaning, I'm surprised you are, I've seen less childish behaviour than yours get met with a ban.

          Now have a nice pee and don't forget to wash your hands.

      I think calling another Warrior a moron (only, I spelled it right) would count as an insult.

      You honestly should maybe pick another forum. Others have tried to help but you will not listen. Your fault, your loss. Have a lovely pee whilst I sit on some solid earnings I have made through following the rules set by the forum which is not owned by me.

      Try shouting some abuse at someone because it is what you believe and see the response.

          I am speaking the truth and no I am not in love with this forum, I have 3 businesses to run. Simply I use the forum because there are very helpful people here. It is you moaning like a child about the forum, so obviously you are hurt and I do feel very sad for you indeed that it has clearly made you so angry and upset.

          Anyhow good luck and I will you all the best, but do try and change your attitude.

    Paul is always deleting my posts. I figure when he does it's because I broke a rule inadvertently. So in essence when he deletes a post it helps me become a stronger member. Does that make me brainwashed?

      I'm sure they have! No one likes people who speak their mind and defend themselves against "personal attacks" by people who worship false gods! That guy called me a troll! And he's still here! So it's okay to insult people on behalf of the Warrior Forum! But not to defend yourself against them! I get it!
      Actually, you don't 'get it.'

      There are lots of people here who disagree with the general consensus. People like the Cat, who's been doing it for years. I could name a bunch more. We welcome intelligent disagreement, to the point of encouraging it. What we don't welcome is trolling, which is something you appear not to grok. Or breaking rules you've been here more than long enough to know and understand, which you've done in several; ways in this thread. First by starting it at all, and then by attacking the other members as cult-like followers for thinking differently than you.

      I find it fascinating to watch people use that approach, by the way. If you agree with me, you're independent. If you agree with others, you're a sheep. Do you not see the irony in your position?

                    You're not helping. I know your intentions are good, but this guy isn't one of those sickos that can't learn. He's just stuck in defense mode, and having a hard time getting out of it.

                      I deleted that last post, I was getting a bit carried away calling him a troll.

                I read every word. I was going to comment on his being from Oklahoma and talking about sheep with derision.

                You know how it is with Okies and sheep.

      Actually, it was ugly from the get-go, as in the first opening post, and I too am surprised you haven't been banned for being a troll.

      Doesn't make much difference though. You've made your mark. We get it.

        Hi thegotoguy,

        One of the big problems with reading posts online is that you can't hear the person's tone or see their body language. Something that would come off as non-abrasive IRL can come off as blunt online, sparking these types of threads. Something to keep in mind if you find yourself having trouble with that.

        As for your post getting deleted/moved, that's part of joining an online community. I've had a few threads and posts vanish as well. It doesn't help to take it personally and it's even worse to rage against it. This is an online community that you and I choose to visit.

        I'd rather be a part of it and have the occasional post disappear than scream for change until my account is banned.

        Good luck!

        -Tim

          As for your post getting deleted/moved, that's part of joining an online community. I've had a few threads and posts vanish as well. It doesn't help to take it personally and it's even worse to rage against it. This is an online community that you and I choose to visit.

          I'd rather be a part of it and have the occasional post disappear than scream for change until my account is banned.

          Good luck!

          -Tim
          You speak of unheard truths! Perhaps the world as we know it is changing? I can just see it now....



          Nice post though! Some members came in and answered his question right away, so I do believe he came here to tango.

    You make it sound like WF did something horrible but you still can't tell us what it is. All you have said is your thread didn't get approved in the War Room, but you didn't even wait to see if it was going to be!

      Didn't you already say that? I get it! I have to wait 6 months to see if it's approved by the gods. Thanks!

    I don't usually post in threads like this - I just get the popcorn and sit back for the ride.

    But this OP has to be the funniest person to join the forum in a long while. I'm guessing the only reason this thread is still here is because Paul and Thomas are having way too much fun reading the OPs replies.

          Give what exactly? I'm not a brain surgeon like you! I am in the middle of defending myself against insults. And apparently continually getting insulted. So please forgive me for being so defensive. It's ironic that I can't insult all of you, though you can insult me and expect me not to get pissed off!

        You keep saying that you're going to keep quiet or not speak your mind anymore but you seem unable to resist.

        Why not bite your tongue, walk away from your pc, cool off a little and then review things, rather than risk alienating and abusing more people.

        As has already been said, you can use the forum for networking and increasing your business - why cut your nose off to spite your face when all you've done is jump to conclusions?

            That's precisely why you need to walk away for air... Ask peeps on here if they feel abused and/or offended by your comments and outbursts and they will more than likely have a different opinion.

            Don't blow things on here completely for yourself... Why shoot yourself in the foot just because you've jumped to conclusions? Take 5, come back with a clear head and read the posts from a different perspective. Peeps are trying to help you, not have a go at you.

        They will do if you don't keep replying on the defensive.

        There are 1 of you and hundreds of thousands of us. That means replies will continue to come in long after you've shut up and disappeared. Happens in most threads.

        But guess what? Most of the new responders won't say anything that others haven't already said to you. And you won't be saying anything in retaliation that you haven't already said, except pershaps tailoring further insults to a person's name, avatar or whatever.

        Chill.

        You don't really have a choice, in fairness. Not if being a WF member is of any importance to you.

        (And if not, then I'd suggest you go elsewhere, where your "style" might be more appreciated and you'll get less stick for it. )

    Ok you originally asked a question based on allegations

    People privided reasonable explanations as to why the issue you were experiencing was happening

    You followed up those explanations with more allgeations w/o offering any substantive proff, then complain that the thread is stuck in a loop.

    you kinda put it in said loop imo

    I'm not quite sure what you are so mad about. You keep on going after someone has pointed out what you have done wrong. Just like in any other community, there are RULES that you have to follow. Now from the looks of this thread, you don't like listening to what anyone has to say unless they particularly agree with you. If you don't like the way this community is ran, leave.

                  tsgeric,

                  I'm sure it's frustrating. It's also inescapable, despite the dreams of some folks who think things can be done the way they'd like, even when the laws of physics say otherwise.

                  There are currently 6 moderators who handle the majority of the task of keeping this place in something resembling order. We delete hundreds of posts every day. Most of those are just spammers, but enough are for other reasons that getting into discussions, and the ensuing debates, about why each was deleted would take more time than any 6 people get in a given day.

                  Add to that the fact that a lot of those people would respond with the same sort of ongoing invective thegotoguy has shown here, and you've got all the explanation you should need to see why we don't even try.

            Um, Paul, Was that an album you described?
            A record is what they also used to call "45s". They aren't really that much
            bigger than a CD although albums where bigger than a record and much
            bigger than a CD.

              Michael,
              A record is what they also used to call "45s". They aren't really that much bigger than a CD
              [ahem] Please note the use of the word 'usually' in my description. 78s and 33s are much bigger than CDs, and they make up the majority of those things which are called 'records' for most non-station purposes.

            Must be rocking the 75's eh?

            Edit: or were the 78's?

          I'd rather ask you to think. Pointing at it won't make the thing understandable. But if you look at your words from the perspective of the other people in the thread, you might find all sorts of useful lessons in them. Things that could profit you a great deal over time.

          I know I am jumping in here in late, and am also surprised this has also made it to page 4, but there is one component of what the OP said which I think hasn't been directly addressed.

          That is the part about not knowing *why* your thread has been deleted. I know some people have said to contact the help desk, and someone else helpfully pointed out that the guidelines are that if it's not original PLR then it won't be allowed, so that explains at least what happened to one thread. But c'mon, let's admit it must be frustrating.

            We've discussed this several times, actually, and there is exactly one reason threads are deleted: breaking forum rules.

            In this particular case, however, the OP has submitted a thread for moderator approval in the War Room... and it hasn't been approved. The thread wasn't actually moved or deleted. It simply wasn't approved fast enough for his taste, so he came out here to piss and moan about it.

              Sam,
              I still have a collection of Vinyl's in the shed somewhere...
              I've got something north of 1000 of them. Some songs just don't hold up as well in digital format. Stuff like "Big Yellow Taxi," "In-a-gadda-da-vita," and "So what?" come to mind immediately.

              Plus, it can be hard to find some of the older stuff on CDs.

                Important things first:

                I still have hundreds of vinyl albums and singles...old school. Also, did you know that the vinyl record industry is still alive?

                2.8 million vinyl records sold in 2010

                Having said that, back to the OP:

                1) Here's something he's missing, I'm afraid; I wouldn't buy something from him for $.01 at this point. Could he change that? Certainly. But it would take a lot more effort than if he hadn't made such a horrible first impression. I've already got an ex-wife...no need to spend money to deal with that type of dialogue.

                2) It doesn't surprise me that he eventually stopped posting (to this point, at any rate)...if you go back, he started to use more and more periods instead of exclamation marks. Obviously, he was tiring out. :rolleyes:

                3) The takeaway lesson here, at least for me: It doesn't matter if you're right or wrong; walk away from the keyboard and cool off before you hit the post button; once it's out there, it never goes away, and it's amazing how things can come back to bite you five years down the road.

                  What's ironic here is that the title to this thread, "Be Aware Of Your Warrior Forum Posts!" is so prophetic.

                  Because once this thread is locked and Google indexes the sig links this thread will come up on the first page when someone types in masterresalerightsdownloads.com.

                Tape masters from the days of LP and eight-track or cassette tape don't have a "properly" balanced frequency profile because the demands of the media required specific frequency ranges to be boosted or cut. A shocking number of engineers think this is how it was intended to sound, and faithfully reproduce the flawed profile on the CD.

              Dear gotoguy,

              First, thank you for the daily dose of WF entertainment!

              I know you said you're out of this thread, but we all know you won't be able to resist it, so...

              I find it interesting, perhaps even ironic that you sound exactly like every bitching customer I've had who couldn't be bothered with reading emails, instructions, rules, TOS, etc, etc.

              You hit one little snag (real or imagined) and it's bitch, bitch, bitch.

              Someone owns this site and it ain't you. You paid for access to part of it and you got what you paid for.

              If I owned WF, I would be inclined to ban you. Refund your 37 bucks and show you the door.

              On the other hand, I might have to balance that simple solution with your potential value as an occasional diversion and chatroom fodder.

              It really would be a tough decision.

                Easy decision. He's not an unreasonable person. He's just spent part of the day in an unreasonable mood. If we banned everyone who ever did that here, there'd be very few of us left. And none of the moderators would survive the purge.

    Oh look mommy, another sig spammer posting a controversial BS thread just to get his

    If you don't like the way the forum is run then delete your account here and be done
    with it. You whining and pouting about it isn't going to get you anywhere.

    The only reason this thread hasn't been deleted yet was so that other Warriors
    could see just who/what thegotoguy is all about. Also, because Mods must see
    something positive about you that you're making it hard for others to see.

    It's water under the bridge.
    Stop acting like a Troll and let it go.

      I think he finally ran out of steam.

      His overreaction suggests there are other things going on in his life and he chose this forum to let off some steam.

      Why else would someone react like that just over a post being deleted?

    Obviously I don't agree with what he's doing and how he handled the situation here.

    As unprofessional as it is, looking through his posts (besides this thread) it seems out of character.

    Maybe he's just having a bad day, alright he shouldn't take it out on the WF, but we don't really know what else is happening in the kids life and lashing out at us "virtual" people might be the least destructive action he can take right now.

    We all make mistakes, the important thing is to learn from them, and looking at the posts he's made over the last few months, I would say it's just that - a mistake which he will regret.

    I'm going to end my day with this:

    It's really simple! I say what's on my mind. It may come across as too harsh or abrasive or whatever! The bottom line is - I still stand behind the topic and the principle behind my belief! This isn't about a single post that got moved or deleted or whatever at this point! This entire thread shows that all of you assemble here every single day posting the same post as the day before just re-written!

    I'm not saying you do it on purpose! I'm just saying that theres only so many ways you can write:

    "make quality posts"
    "get 47 katrillion backlinks to beat the google Panda or you'll fail"
    "concentrate on SEO every day and eat sleep and breathe it or you'll die"!

    It's the same redundant ritual every single day and all of you are buying into it like its some kind of miracle pill or something.

    The people that run this forum make a ton of money praying that you'll keep worshipping them day after day after day! And that's fine! I learned my lesson on WSO's and paying for advertising. I come here to learn something real that someone wants to share! But after you bust it all down to the brass tacks, it's nothing more than a perpetual engine of repeated SEO & internet marketing mumbo jumbo every single day, all day long. Go read some threads! I've seen less brown nosing during Presidential elections.

    The bottom line is:

    I don't really care anymore, and you've wasted your entire afternoon on me = I win

    So go write a post about article writing or google analytics or something! I'm going out for a drink or 9!

        O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
        What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
        Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
        O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
        And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
        Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
        O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
        O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

      Can I read into that that your WSO failed to earn you any profits?

      If so, might I respectfully suggest that you don't know enough about marketing WSO's to know whether anyone else is actually making money with them or not?

        I'm not sure how well the product vendors are doing but services are selling at a very healthy clip. An easy way to find out who is making money on the wso's and whop isn't just check out the size of their threads. The cats not making any money hardly ever continue bumping their threads.

    I have also had two threads deleted that were in the right section, but Im not freaking out and bashing the Forum. This place is full of fantastic information, so learn from it, and if your thread gets deleted and you thought it was wrong, contact an admin.

    Don't feel bad man the war room is not a forum where you can just post anything there. IT MUST HAVE SOME GOOD VALUE. If it didn't get posted then its either still in moderation or it was not a good addition to the forum. Just try again.

      For a while it seemed like I wasn't going to be able to read these posts fast enough to ever get to the end.... Now that I'm here.... I think I'll declare success and go to bed.

    In 2006 I joined the forum and was promptly banned for getting into a defensive shouting match that I wouldn't let go. I still to this day know I was correct in the way I handled the first negative responder. But after that everyone and his brother jumped into it and I refused to back down and the rest was history. Long story short is I stayed away from the forum for another four years after that. The fact we're doing $50k a month now at the forum tells me that I lost a boat load of cash by staying away for those four years. So understand there is no way you are going to get the last word in here. If you persist you may end up costing yourself some serious cash like I did.
