Thread in question: PANDORA.gives - 1098% per year or 3% every day, decide for yourself (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027185.0)

Archive: http://archive.is/dXbHc

IMHO, this type thread is best suited @ Investor-based games (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=207.0). But, my report has been marked as Bad.

India sub-forum (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=89.0)...

1. Does NOT have Trust enabled. So, Get Rich Quick newbies easily fall for these scams and start blaming bitcoin.

2. Does NOT have a Moderator. A request to appoint one is pending for long (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3125174.0).

This looks fucked up. I reported it too, might not help much but worth a try.

I have reported similar case, but all are mark bad or unhandled. So I am not reporting this kind of topic. Because scam and ponzi scheme isn't moderated by forum.

I have tried as well but nothing happened. Even I pm to moderators with details and made post also on meta. I think only way to handle this kind of post  by trust system. May be people's will aware and save money. Because all ponzi scheme are became scam eventually.

1.That's the main problem, although I can see scammer has already tagged. But not showing on local board. So how people will aware about them ?

2. Even there moderators but no one will mark your report good. Because there is global moderators, once you report any post it means all global moderators are able to handle. But ponzi scheme are not moderated, so they will not take action.

well that is a major issue, surely Theymos needs to make a change here. He wont be removing Skams as it is well known that the admins do not get involved on that level - but having trust hidden in the sub isn't cool at all

Thank you theymos (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=35) for enabling trust on main board. I'll keep reporting posts on India forum. Hopefully, they'll be taken care of and not left unhandled like this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5040666.0).

We're not asking to remove the scam, just move it to the proper board.

:o :o :o
I created such a topic[1] a few days ago but did not find any interest.
As long as theymos has shown "Trust" in that board, I wish to review all local boards, especially sections such as Altcoins, Mining, and Hardware.
The boards that I mentioned above show trust in the English version but do not appear in local one.???
