Do you research a site before joining?

I have read a few posts today about new sites springing up and how some people join and happily post away without checking whether or not the site is legitimate. Another side of the same coin is do people check that they can actually get paid if they do join and start posting? I am a member of the UK site Ciao and a lot of non UK residents join and start posting reviews in the hope of earning a few extra pence through the site. The site does state that you need to have a UK bank account on order to cash out but few members check this before starting to post. Next thing is that they realise when they go to cash out and can't. I often tell new members about the UK bank account rule but quite a few think that they will sort something out with Ciao, only to disappear off the site. Do you do your research before joining a website or do you join and hope that you will get paid eventually?

I don't know what makes people so willing to jump in anywhere so fast. I read @Owlwings comment and totally agree with most of it. I don't do 6 and 7, those will only confuse the issue. Guaranteed people won't read the terms, won't know what they are doing and holler scam in the end. Legitimate reviews are few and hard to find. I would add that keeping an email address just for the purpose of checking out a site is great. Get in there and look around and don't expect to find a pot of gold around the corner.
