    Thousands of marketers selling ways to make money online to each other. Useless site.

    More than 3 million bucks is simply a waste for that site. If I'd have 3m I could buy an island somewhere in the EU.

    Warrior Forum is NO WAY can be an alternative for ABW!!!!
    They are so different!
    I use both of them for years (created a username just now, but have been a passive reader for years) and I agree that the amount of spam on Warrior Forum is huge, but there are good people there too.... you learn very fast who is who and what you are looking for.

    Freelancer is primarily an Indian website - so they purchased the forum with the highest percentage of Indian participation. Makes sense to me - but I'm still not going to try to wade through the spam to find the two or three decent threads.

    Being a warrior forum member for years, I was shocked to hear they got sold out to freelancer but i am glad for the previous owner anyway as he did a good job.

    Warrior Forum is not in anyway an alternative to Abestweb, this forum focus on affiliate marketing, while the warrior forum is focusing on Internet Marketing in general (As an affiliate marketer myself there is so much I can do or discuss in there because majority of users are not in the affiliate business).

    I am not sure how is freelancer controlling the quality of the forum posts, but i can see more spams than often lately.

    I never liked WF that much as it feels like 90%+ of the people are there to BS noobs into buying theirs or their aliases WSO, everything else is there to fill in the gaps. You can pick up some good tips though on those types of forums for SEO, finding high paying offers, creative ideas etc but you must take everything with a grain of salt. There are a couple of other similar forums that I prefer to browse over now and then for some tips with my morning coffee.

    What annoys me with those types of forums is when you read about some 14 year old kid bragging about how easy it is to make $1,000 a day with adwords or CPA or clickbank or whatever and how he just showed his 13 year old neighbor how to do it and he made $200 in 24 hours

    just to think, I have not even seen 99.99999%+ of the Internet and I have been online nearly every day working/battling to make a living since 1996, gosh there must be so many places to see. There are so many places to pick up ideas and learn from, but just not enough time..
