I'm new to this forum and I enjoy all the good info, but I noticed something that made me ask this question. Whenever someone posts a "I quit" thread, there are many responses as to not give up, perseverance is the key, etc. Stuff to make the person keep going. I also notice though that many is very guarded about their methods and sites, which is expected. For example, I am having trouble finding good examples of niche sites. When I PM'ed someone asking for their site, the reply I got was basically "not going to show you". No big deal, and I expect that. That's breeding more competition. So back to my point; why then do people try to keep people from quitting? People quitting means less competition, as I stated before. Looking forward to seeing your thoughts on this.
