It’s OK to say "JackAss" on Sphinn. :)

I am pretty sure I know the guy in this post. He was in the front row of one of the sessions I was speaking on. I’m sure he acted just as rude in all the sessions he was in!There’s always one in every crowd.

You mean hecklers wont roughed up with taster stund guns and thrown into jail by security? Perhaps, your conference should have paid security more money?Why not take Google’s stand on the issue. JackA--- are banned because they don’t play nice, by following the rules.Gee, does that make Black Hat SEMs JackA---?

Hey, two sides to every story.... I just read this (or attempted to read) this blog post before seeing this Sphinn. Am I wrong in putting 2 and 2 together and assuming this is the guy?http://bit.ly/2wvYQB

or for a less violent solution get the chair to ask them to shut up and if they dont have them ejected in the UK i think if its  a "Public" meeting you can still I belive call the police to eject hecklers - odley enough this is using some anti blackshirt laws from the 30’s Ime not sure what roberts rules says on the matter

Ha, ... Hah. Ha!  Hey, two sides to every story.  If I paid a S1,000 to attend a conference and got served up the usual Sphinn garbage I would be more than a little pissed.Perhaps, the Search Conference speaker was the real JackA--, here.  Conferences are not cheap, and attendees sometimes actually pay their own fair and are there for reasons other than to goof off.
