BlogRush deactives Seopedia’s account because it’s not within their guidelines. What a load of BS.

I’m really sorry to hear that. My account was disabled, too, because I have not enough posts. I have 29 posts, I promoted BR, I keep the BR widget as high as possible, but wtf? I didn’t meet their criteria.

I fully agree. I got the same message this morning. They didn’t even bother to check that I uninstalled their widget one month ago

I just received an e-mail from an anonymous tipper about the team that handles the quality:a bunch of people that would like to earn some extra cash.It’s in the article.

It’s simple. I was scammed to think that all the viral effort I made, all the posts I made to promote the referral link will lead to something.Moreover, I was scammed because no matter the editorial scenario, seopedia.org is not a blog to be taken out be some dick with 2 months experience in Internet.A blog with over 1700 RSS subscribers, great design, widget inserted RIGHT and the top of the sidebar, 250 quality articles and 4000 uniques per day, versus the REAL crap that’s in the network.I received a total of 50 visitors from blogrush whilst sending more then 5000.

I’m just amused that you’re giving them all this free PR (2 blogrush Sphinn’s already) as even bad PR will drive more people to BlogRush that may have never heard of it before.Good plan.

@johntyThat post from Baby is great - and her previous one that quotes the threat from Blogrush http://seocog.blogspot.com/2007/09/blogrush-to-busy-to-shut-me-off.html"IF you were one of the people that has been cheating our network I’m going to give you ONE opportunity... quit now and we’ll pretend it never happened. BUT... if you continue after this point, all bets are off. We WILL eventually discover what you’re doing, where you’re trying to send traffic, and we will prosecute you. I GUARANTEE IT. Sorry, but WE HAVE NO CHOICE NOW."Hmm, "eventually discover what you’re doing". Sounds like they have the spammers on the run there.

OK, these people are idiots because they can’t prosecute anyone, they can sue someone, but only the government can prosecute someone, and a judge would his eyes when he reads a lawsuit that has no monetary damages.Yup, they sound like real bunch of winners .... not.Maybe they should fix their freaking system before sending threats@Chris, the SEO bloggers aren’t the only ones that generate traffic so don’t think they can’t be successful without this niche market.

Well, I sent another email.  I a really mad as hell.  I don’t in all honesty want my blog associated with a BlogRush account.  I asked to be removed, on Sept. 29th they assured me that had happened.  Jonty left me a comment that I was activated even though I am no longer a member....Well, I have news for BlogRush...They have threatened me, they have ignored, and they have tried to hold my blog hostage by means of their lack of systematic procedure for blog removal...and I am very disparaged by the fact that they host a clause in their terms of use as followsBy submitting Content to Income.com for inclusion in our Service, you grant Income.com a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of promoting your blog. If you delete Content, Income.com will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Service, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.I do not find it at all amusing....It is quite a vague statement from a company I have grown to distrust. In essence, any content present on your blog during the period of membership is in fact licensed to BlogRush under that clause, unless you delete it. --Melanie
