I came across a couple of scammers today, but didn't know where to post to warn others.

How about a section where we can express our personal experiences with other board members or retailers?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

One has to prove guilt before sentencing in this country.

Why not start off with the finer details of the scam(s), without dropping names, and then we can decide on how best to deal with it - and then the degree of punishment.

Yes, we have to be very careful with this, as it is wide open to abuse.

There are obviously going to be cases where the fact that something is a scam is unquestionable, but in cases where someone feels they have been badly misled or treated by a company, there can often be another side to the case and we have to be careful with tarring and feathering someone on the say so of one person.

By all means, as Channel Hopper says, test this out with no names, in the general chat section.

I think we ought to name and shame the mods and specialist contributors to this forum.
They are all guilty of offering honest, impartial advice and expert help for your problems.
Too many people have come here and had their questions answered in a professional manner.
The advice given is nothing but good and all their words are a pack of truth.
They are all to honest and helpful for their own good.
They are all to happy to dish out their expertise and need to be punished.

By the way, to all of you,
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME

Sorry, couldn't resist. One too many Stella's.

Kind regards

THE HAPPY TRAVELLER
