An individual/company planning to invest a significant amount of time and money online should be aware of the following facts:
1. Online people who make false accusations against an innocent person without any proof at all, will often have more supporters than the innocent person who is being framed.
2. One of the most popular blogging scripts has a number of hidden backdoors. If a blogger uses a popular spam prevention plugin with this script, all the legitimate comments from visitors will disappear and only spam comments will remain. This is true for many scripts / themes/plugins for this CMS, even though every time the blogging software is used, there is a link to the main blog software site.
3. A widely used directory script has a paid version and a free version. In the free version, all submitted links relevant to the niche disappear. If the paid version of the script is used, the number of submitted links in a year is lower than the links submitted to the free version of the directory script in a month. When a user uses a free script, he or she links to the script developers website , so that they get free traffic, but still the script developers are greedy and use dirty tactics.
