I started using this site in 2012. It helped me as a gateway into the world of hacking. Now I have a full time infosec job. This wouldn't have been possible if the allure of the forum and hacking didn't draw me in when I was younger. Ignore the trolls posting here, they just got banned for not following the rules. It's a great community, a ton of intel chatter on here!See positive reviews
Owner doesn't know how to run a site, bans anyone because he can't take any form of criticism on his website. I don't recommend buying ranks or anything, it's a waste of money. Jesse (the owner) also cooperates with law enforcement. Will be a dead forum here in the future.See critical reviews
Tip for consumers: Use contracts if you are doing deals on site.
Tip for consumers: Upon registering, make sure to read ALL rules so you're familiar with what to do and what not to do.
It's a great website. I use it regularly to gain intelligence information. The chatter is a good way to see what the skiddy kids are abusing and how to stay safe!
