Every new member on a site is someone trying to get links.
Every site has an angle on how to get cash
Every site is a fake to get links to the real site
Every webmaster is using nofollow.
They are all trying to steal my commisions and destroy my cookies.

before I loved the www now it the www is evil and I must wage war.

ok back to reality, seriously this site has made me too suspicious

Sounds like you have the makings of a country and western song.

Hmm, perhaps that's just the way the cookies crumble...

Second refrain:

Every client is ignorant, cheap, or obnoxious;
Every credit card sale is fraudulent;
Every shipment is late, damaged, or lost;
Every SE bans my sites for no good reason at all;
Every web helldesk is script-limited, overseas, or offline;

As I huddle safely here in my Faraday Cage ...
Thanks WebmasterWorld for helping me withstand the Wicked Wild Web.

How about a few cliches to add to this subject:

If all else fails, manipulate the data
Oh what a tangled web we weave
The truth won't be told by the few who know.
stretch the truth
there are lies, damned lies and statistics
liars, liars, pants on fire

Success is all about working in close quarters with friends, competitors and enemies alike. ;-)

There is always a quote:

No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up.
Lily Tomlin

Success is the one unpardonable sin against our fellows.
Ambrose Bierce

The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.
Henry Ford

Each client is a partnership, a conversation. You're only going to be able to go as far as they wish to go, in a way. That makes all the difference.

That Henry Ford quote belongs at the top of the Google forum.

The World Wide Web;
(i.e) A system of shameless promotion of self, some product or some idea.

A few more cliches on this subject:
"and this above all, to thine own self be true"
"The toes you step on today just might be connected to the ### you kiss tomorrow."
"get the edge on the competition"
"Don't get mad, get even!"
"do unto others before they do unto you"
"cynics are the harshest critics of everyone else but themselves"
"there is no such thing as constructive criticism"
