ScreamingEagle,

I completely understand how obnoxious WHP's spam is. I would, however, like to take this opportunity to ask you to please refrain from posting about it every single time you get a spam email from them. This is not WHP's forum and there is nothing we can do about it. Please do not take offense at this, I'm simply asking to please cease with the constant bickering about it. I wholeheartedly concur that it is annoying and immoral and everything else, but enough is enough already. This is not to mention the fact that every time you post about them, you're giving them publicity. Bad publicity is still publicity and they've probably made sales off your posts.

Thanks and no hard feelings...

How about you don't click the thread then?

Seriously. If you have that much of a problem with his posts...don't click the thread that has "WHP" in the title.

It's just become spam to me - I usually don't click the posts. This has got to be one of the most talked about subjects and all it does is give them publicity and sales.

A thread about them spamming gives them sales? Is that what you just said?

I'm surprised that a topic that's "looking down" on them gives them sales... I never thought it would actually.

Not directly- but the more their name is brought up, the more publicity they get; which, in the long run, leads to them getting sales. People see "webhostingplus" being constantly brought up, regardless of what the thread is about, people get curious about them.

Hm. Before seeing all these threads, I saw one of their offers, got to talking on live chat and was scared to death by the person on the other end.

I couldn't even tell he/she was writing a sentence - or if they even knew what they were doing - it was awful. I never looked at them again.

Maybe that's how they got my email...

If people are stupid enough to read threads about someone spamming, and sign up. Then that's good for them.

The way I see it. The more topics, the more awareness. There are new members joining here everyday. A lack of threads will probably represent a cease of the problem to them.

I respect your opinion on it, but I have my own reasons for posting this thread. If you don't like it, you're more than welcome to inquire to a moderator.

Their spamming is well documented. Do something constructive and report the spam instead of giving them more publicity here.
