I work in the very competitive industry of internet marketing so I’ve seen my fair share of dirty tricks. Some people don’t care about the way they do business as long as they’re #1. This isn’t the way I work though. I work hard to get my clients lots of business and I do it legitimately.
This is why this new software I just heard about pisses me off. What it does is trick Craigslist into thinking that other peoples posts are spam and will delete them. It will click on those “flag as spam” links several times on the competitors posting and will make it look like it has come from unique IP addresses.
I think that if you’re business has to resort to these kinds of tricks, then your business probably sucks and you need to work on that first. Then you’ll start bringing in customers without having to buy controversial software. People work hard for their money, and you should too. If you don’t work hard, don’t expect to stay in business too much longer either.
