Black Hats Turing White, Then Black Again

Brad Fallon from SEO Radio has a forum like discussion going on that I find to be hilarious. The title of the discussion is named Interview with a Blog Spammer, where Brad links to an interview of Todd "Oilman" Friesen. Brad says as follows:

One point is that the most successful spammers eventually go white hat -- short term, less money, long term they get to stay around. Did you know that many of the current internet marketing gurus started out as rank email spammers? True story.

If you continue to read the thread, you will fine some of the funniest comments ever. Forum members basically drop real remarks and then a spammy like link that follows. My favorite comment is by Max on April 20, 2005 at 03:50 PM. I had to share this with you.
