SD Community. I plead that you please refrain from acquiring these free "books"....
Thanks for those tips and insight, weaver145! Another thing I have noticed is these 'box sets' - they come every week under a slightly different name, but with the same set of 'small books' shuffled in different order! They also carry a 'bonus material' most of the time. This pattern made me wonder if these books are "written" (compiled) by different authors or by the "same company"! Smilie

You are most welcome. Yes I am aware of the shell game. There's an attitude here of "screw it - people should take responsibility for what they spend their money on". And I get that, but this community is being used to help these scammers create the illusion that many people are truly finding value in these plagiarized booklets. That is the part i most object to.

If these guides were being put together by kids with a sense of entrepreneurship and with a genuine desire to contribute their own thoughts and opinions, I would be the first to back off this campaign. The reality is these things are being cranked out in bigger and bigger volumes daily with the express intent to purposely deceive and defraud less savvy individuals. Their success is also causing honest publishers and authors to drop off the top selling lists.

I feel its high time to take a stand and refrain from enabling this plague. If my posts get thumbed down as well by these scammers so be it. I derive zero $ from however many people grab the free books i post daily as an alternative to these booklets.

I'm curious as to who made you the be-all end-all voice of what should or should not be put on a public site. If you don't like it, then stop reading their posts--it's that simple. Bashing someone else just makes you out to be self-centered or afraid people will not read your own postings.

Everyone knows that this is a section for Free Digital Goods and shouldn't expect only A list musicians, authors or things from only established companies.

No one. While it is a free site would you expect a list of pirated music torrents ? This is sort of the equivalent of that. There is little no original material being peddled by these posts.
