My opinion on Warrior forum. Do not part with your money for the War room!

Warrior forum will ban you and take your money anyway

Warrior forum as far as I was concerned had a fabulous reputation for affiliate marketing and for on line workers. Now this may very well be true for the unscruplious few that would rob their own granny. The majority however will just find themselves paying for ebooks and advice that you can get elsewhere for free.

By all means, sign up and look around if you feel you may gain any information. But please please do not part with any money. What ever information that is available at Warrior forum will be found on the internet for free.

Whatever you do ignore the spiel about something called the " War room". I went surfing around the main forum and read statements like " If you notice all the best IM workers go in to the private War room". Funnily enough the war room is a private room at a cost of $37 of your extremely hard earned money. Yes in hindsight I have a big dint in my pride and for a feww minutes I forgot my mantra of " Never pay to work". Although I was not paying for work, it was still to benefit my work.

So what did I get for my $37? Glad you asked! As it happened I got nothing but a big hole where my $37 (£23.08) should be. When I went back an hour later to log in to the famously anonymous " War room" I found myself locked out and banned for life. Why? Had I spammed, upset any one, been offensive? Not at all. What did the message say?

You have been banned for being a MORON. Ban will be lifted, NEVER.

Well as rude and hurtful as that message is, it certainly holds some truth now. I am left feeling hurt, embarrassed, poorer and like a fool for going against everything I have learnt up to yet. Very hard lesson I have learnt. I hope this hub stops some of you newer On line writers from getting stung.

I am hoping Paypal can get my money back as I have opened a dispute. Let us hope I am lucky. But Warrior Forum certainly made an enemy for life. If you want to see how much more these people have upset people, take a look at this forum. Warrior room sucks here .

@ Bill. I never posted anything against rules. I posted one message saying hello. I don't spam, EVER. I don't go against rules.

I paid for the War Room and was banned with that message immediately. I got my money back and can now also access Warrior forum, funny hey?

Wow you guys need to follow rules. You can't just give free shit away???? It is meant as a place to go learn and then apply what you have learned. If you just run around posting links and offering free stuff you are missing the point. The have sections for you to sell on. By the way free ebooks that lead to your squeeze pages isn't free. People pay huge money for lists and you need to do the same. The warrior forum has lead me to the people who have taught me how to generate a full time income from home.

Any site with a good rep will not allow MORON type activities. Tones of other places to do this just not there. By the way posting WSO's both free and paid for are easy and quick to do. They do however have some previously mentioned rules but man can you make a killing. If you are having a good time living in the world of bitching and misery instead of actually making money then enjoy. If not see you all on the inside ; )

The Warrior forum definitely has an attitude problem.

I also was just "BANNED" from Warrior Forum and will "NEVER" have my ban lifted. What a joke. I was trying to give away copies of my eBook (How To Buy A Website Business) for free in return for some feedback comments on the Amazon bookstore. I guess giving away something for free is against there rules...? Oh well, I'm over it. :)

I really wish I had known it back then, Privateye2500. I can tell you are not "selling" Linkedin. I have heard of it, but not had time to read through it. I will take a look when I have time, thank you.

Just a sidebar - if you are in business and want a truly awesome venue that is worthwhile, valuable and free (still) - try out

This is NOT an ad for it - I am simply saying that it has brought me a LOT of business and is NONSPAM.

You sub to the topic(s) you choose which are very well laid there is no wading through a bunch of doodoo.

You can also create your own groups...there are many things about linkedin that just take it a notch above any other for its purpose, IMO, these days.

I should write a hub about it! I believe I will :}

I am willing to bet I am the longest term *Warrior* to read this Hub!

The Warrior Forum and room did not USED to suck! LOL - 18+ years ago or more it was really an Awesome place.

Allen Says ran the best Internet marketing Forum with the best information there was - THEN.

Now..I could not vote in your poll because my answer is not there. There isn't a choice that fits for me.

What once was pure genius went seriously downhill after the 1st forum change and all the old Valuable posts were lost!!

Then came the loss of the actual value of the membership; plus the fact the forum *used* to be for members ONLY and at that time it was non-spammy & full of good ideas and JV's galore.

Today - I never go there... where at one time (15 years ago!?) I went there everyday; sometimes all day and I learned a LOT.

Allen Says has to be filthy rich beyond his wildest dreams by now...and his web hosting really DOES ROCK! It IS - Bar None - The BEST!

But as for the WARRIOR GROUP...a sad a once great room...gone to the bad dogs. :{ sure brought back a LOT of memories for me and JV's and people...

If you have any questions for me or whatever...please feel free to contact me :}

WOW! - Can't believe I ran across this!!

Thank you ~ Melanie

Well, thank you! Given this new information, I will take greater caution over there.

Mostly, I lurked there. If I saw someone who was offering something or who looked like someone I could JV (joint venture) with, I would approach them through PM.

I have really curtailed my forum posting in the past few years. It's just getting weirder. I've been really turned off at a couple of forums lately because of the militant behavior of a few male posters toward women posters. I guess it's becoming more acceptable these days to be pro-pedophile, pro-rape, etc. Just a few years ago, people wouldn't dare express such opinions because they would be kicked of or, at least, shouted down.

The other thing I've become conscious of is mods altering posts for no particular reason... I find that disturbing because they could change a post you made, make it say anything, and say you posted it. And, you would have no way to defend yourself.

WF has it's share of weirdos, too. And, it is very male dominated, but they do keep control over what can be posted there. I saw in one of the links you posted that a guy got kicked off for posting a sexist joke. (Honestly! I have no problem with that. We don't go to a pro forum, especially, for that kind of thing.) Sometimes I do searches on their forum for information. There really is good info. there if you sift through it. But, there seem to be more and more disturbed people on-line. I guess maybe there are just more people on-line now and maybe that's why.

I'm so glad you got your money back.

Thank you for your efforts on my behalf St Cyprian. I only had one post, I am also a stickler for trying my utmost to put things in correct categories.

I went into the introduction part and said hello to a new member and said that I am also new. Then I paid my membership, and with in an hour was banned with that insulting name call.

I received my money back through paypal.

I just checked over there - it looks about like usual. Honestly, I've had some very good luck connecting with other marketers there.

That said, writers and marketers are very often worlds apart from each other in mentality.

My guess is that it actually was your initial post (I didn't look for it, by the way) that caused the banning. They are serious about sticking to topics over there. It's not a chatty, friendly kind of forum.

One of the things I'm going to be writing about soon is how not to have problems in these forums. I've observed writers, in particular, attracting stalkers to themselves (usually other writers) on writing forums. It's a disturbing trend, in general, on the forums these days. It didn't used to be like this! I've been posting on BBS since the mid-1980s and I've never seen the level of stalking and outright perversity I'm seeing in the past year or so.

Anyway, always lurk for a long time before you make a move on any forum. Never use your real name. Use a different User Name, too, because you can be tracked all over the 'net if you use the same user name in different places and if you get the first hint of a flame war or anything in a professional forum, get out of there! Don't engage the lunatics. The sad truth is the mods on those sites often have access to a lot of info. about you and can make your life a living hell. For some reason, a lot of these forum mods are, themselves, mentally unstable. And, they're on petty power trips.

If you paid with PayPal, maybe you'll be all right on this. I know that if they get enough complaints PayPal will cut them off!

I'm sorry to hear that happened to you. I have written a book that talks a lot about marketing for writers and recommends Warrior Forum as a place to pick up ideas. I've never recommended anyone spend money on the War Room, specifically. I do revisions to the book every year because things are changing so fast! (For example, this year I'll be adding more about cyber-security, anti-stalking, safe on-line marketing practices.) I will look into what's going on over there.

Maybe they have become victims of the economy, as well - I swear the con artists and creeps are coming out of the woodwork the more the economy is sinking like the Titanic!

Thanks for the info.

St. Cyprian, it most definitely was them. I never saw the inside of the war room because as soon as they had my money, this incident occurred.

Whatever information they try to sell can be gained elsewhere for free.

Obviously since you joined, they have become greedy and play dirty.

The paypal address is the creator. It all connects perfectly St.Cyprian. I am certainly sure that others and myself have been dealt a bum deal by these fraudsters!

Wow! I wonder if you actually joined the War Room or if it was something else - like someone posing as the War Room.

I am a member and I learned a lot there, but that was a couple of years ago and the cost to join for life was something like $18. For me, it was worth it.

But, I haven't been over there for quite a while. And, yes, it is full of marketers and copywriters. It's a good place to learn some things about both of those subjects if you are selective.

Warrior forum is a site that will hopefully be taken down with the help of decent and moral writers.

Thank you very much for reading my hub, and I hope this article will make me even.

Thanks for the warning about Warrior Forum and they will definitely not be getting any of my money.

As the old saying goes "Don't get mad : Get even"

Well done :-)

It would have been nice to have gone inside the war room and see what it was like. It sounds like I am not mising much. Whereas I hope the sites owners lose everything for their ignorance and rudeness to others.

You're much, MUCH better off without the forum. Honestly, you should be happy you're not wasting your time away with a bunch of fakers trying to position themselves as true internet marketers. 99.9% of them don't earn a dime, unless it's from selling their craptastic WSO's which I've filed multiple complaints against the FTC for. Oh yes, they're about to get nuked themselves ... I told you paul, I'm coming after you idiots...

I tried the polite message, but I was ignored. And the other webpage that I have noted states that there are many more besides myself.

I thought their message was offensive.

I have only slightly heard of this forum, and guess your negative experience is something to note. Their reason for banning you is something you could take up with the managers of the forum as the wording is offensive. I have found Paypal excellent for fixing money issues wherever they occur as they have an excellent "Solving" process. Cheers!

Thank you Sueswan. I am glad I could save you the distress.

I will let people know if I get my money back, not that that will change my opinion of the crooks.

You can by all means register and read the forum, omitting the War room. Just do not get sucked in to paying subscriptions.

Well, I've never heard of Warrior Room, but the name would suggest it isn't fun and games. LOL.

Sorry--I had to mark the hub as funny because the reason they gave was: Moron and Never.

Props to you for including this information! LOL

Well, I hope that PayPal gives you your money back. I'll keep this hub in mind if I ever am referred to Warrior Room. Thanks for the warning!
