LIST OF SCAMS - Sorry people but if I see one more post about someone
March 7, 2009 11:07pm CST
starting a scam list, I am going to scream!!! There are professional long standing sites like beenpaid.com and ptctalk.com that have boycott and scam lists. If you are making the list for a blog to earn money, believe me, there is no way you can keep up with such a big list unless you do nothing but that. There are hundreds of sites that open and close daily. So, anyone still want to create a scam list?

I agree with you that it's a full-time job to keep up with all the scams. Honestly, though, none of the lists are really complete...it's just too big a job for anyone. That's why I actually think it's good to have a bunch of different lists. A particular scam site might not make one list, but it might make another and so show up when someone's doing a search about that scam site. Plus, the more lists there are the more honest sites are forced to be. Now sure, Beenpaid is pretty much beyond reproach as far as I know, but it's potentially a big problem if the people behind a scam list are friends with scammers (or are scammers themselves) or if a scammer has infiltrated a community and always jumps in when his site is discussed. Competition is basically a good thing.

Excellent point you made! Competition is good, between those sites that can devote the resources and time to maintain the list. Individuals, unless they devote all their time to that list, I dont think should jump in and make a list, especially if they are only doing it to earn money from their blog.
