You Can't Always Believe the Scam Lists

I used to always check scam lists before joining any site and if they were listed I would never join. Now I'm not saying that all the sites listed on these lists are legit, of course they aren't BUT after today I'm starting to wonder what good sites I may have missed out on by always believing what I read. The reason I'm saying this is I'm a moderator at a brand new ptc site. It is still in pre launch and honestly states that all earnings will be reset at live launch. Am I the only one that thought the only time a site got listed as a scam was when they never or stopped paying members? Well this is not true. Buxtro the site I'm the mod on, is already listed on some of these sites. It is being bad mouthed by people who can't possibly know that it is not legit! How can they, we have not gone live so in turn they can't know that buxtro does not pay! It just makes me very angry that certain people want to discredit a site not even knowing what they are posting is true. I believe in buxtro more then any site I've ever been a member of. And before you think I'm getting paid somehow for posting this, mods are volunteers not paid for our time. My point is don't always believe that a site is bad when reading these scam lists. Is there anyone else you has encountered this? Thank you for responding.

I try not to trust the word of just one scam site. What usually tells the story is reading the thoughts of many different people...the preponderant opinion tends to be the correct one. Virtually EVERY site gets called a scam by someone, somewhere. If one viewpoint was enough to convince me, I would've never made a dime online.

I'm curious: what's the difference between pre-launch and 'live'? I'm guessing since I'm not 100% familiar with the differences, other people may not be. All they know is that earnings will be reset, so you can understand that it may smell like a scam to people who have been burned before. Have you tried explaining the difference between pre-launch and live (and the legitimate reasons for the earnings reset, whatever they may be) to the people who are screaming "SCAM!!!!"?

Thanks for joining buxtro. The difference between prelaunch and live is as follows. A site does a prelaunch in order to find any problems before a site does go live. Unexpected bugs can come up and this way the site will be working and fixing these problems during this time. Going live is when the site has resolved most if not all the problems that were found during prelaunch. It is just smart business. I hope this helps you to understand the difference.
