    I would like to hear from one person that has made any money spamming.  Oh sure years ago maybe but now?  Come on I kust dont understand why people are still doing it,  seems like such a waste of time that could be used else where in a more productive manor.

    So make a million dollars overnight in your pajamas by going to www.shjgdgdgjsjk.whatasucker.com

    LOL, I know dry humor  lol

    PS   Link doesnt actually go anywhere

    Ah let them waste their time. One day they will sit back and wonder why their lives went to the dumps then maybe they would realize that they should of been taking classes or something instead of spamming.

    You can't put the whole blame on them.

    They buy these cheap ebooks, which tell them stuff like "Turn your computer into an ATM!!!! You'll be able to sit around in your underpants sucking cash out of peoples wallets if you just follow the steps laid down in this $37.77 e-book which is only available today for that price.
    Tomorrow it goes up to 437.
    buy now.

    And they wonder why it doesn't work.
    And we sit here and curse them.

      You are so right Eric.  That is a big reason my affiliate career has been dedicated to helping newbies.

      There are good ebooks and programs out there but it really is a mater of finding them and that can cost people hundreds and thousands of dollars.

      You do make a good point.

      Orphans maybe?  I thought everyone's parents told them "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

    Yep I learned and nope never made any money either.

    There are definatly better ways to get your product or websites seen.

      Basically someone who goes around and posts an identical message across multiple boards with no relation to the topic at hand in order to advertise or sell something in the hope some sucker will click it.

      I assume to result in the user being directed to a site where they suffer a bombardment of popups, viruses or trick the user into entering personal information in some sort of scam.

      There are also those who go around and post nonsense across the boards to get a reaction from people and they are called Trolls.
