    I have sworn them off!
    I have had it with that "other forum". Can I mention the name? Digital Point. I have been a member since January 2006 with 911 posts until today. I mainly observe and post in the Affiliate Forum, but I have had it with them. Most of the posts there are "get rich quick" or "how can I get over" posts. It is NOT about the art and science of affiliate marketing.

    I tried to get the mods to delete my account, but they won't! The mod who replied said "DP owned my soul". (Cute) So I rewrote my sig to say I am no longer posting or accepting PMs or emails from DP.

    I have only been active here at ABW for about 1 month, but I can clearly see this forum is about the art and scince of affiliate marketing.

    My new home. Thanks ABW.

    Jim

    Congrats. I've posted there a few times but the affiliate section is junk:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=22

    First, I see the Fat Rich Pig is over there, he had a thread here. Have to love this one:

    Zango PROOF! I've been getting checks from Zango for months.

    Junk. One of the more spammiest places I've seen.

    Thanks, Trust. I never thought my post would receive a "congrats", but that forum is spammy and slimy.

    Two plus years over there has really jaded my outlook on affiliate marketing. I need an adjustment, and ABW has been providing that.

    Thanks!

    ProWebAddict,

    I won't even use DP for that anymore. I have removed that forum from my links and favorites.

    Did you do like in the Cowboy movies and drag branches behind you to cover your trail. We wouldn't want any sleazy types following you.

    Seriously you will be glad you moved.

    It seems like almost everyone over there is either a get rich quick expert or seo expert. Amazing how many can't write a coherent sentence though.

    I go there once a month and call out the spam posts but it makes little difference.

    They are total spam...

    But - I just ordered 20 articles from one of 'them' - very cheap. Hopefully they will be decent. Their sample articles were very well written.

    I have been writing some articles on my own and I take way too long. I will continue to write on my own (hopefully increasing my speed) and buy a batch of articles weekly, I think the key to articles is being prolific.

    I don't spend any time on that forum, just find a content provider, place my order and get the h-e-double toothpicks out of there!

    Are there any article writers on this forum? I haven't even thought to look here, going to search a little and see what I find . I'm new here also - and just love this place - it's just loaded with REAL and usefull information!
