I was reading up on about scammers and trusted traders and stuff, but I was wondering what was up with all the MD5 hashes of E-mails.

Also, shouldn't we have a "Dispute Scam" section of the Market Place forum, and the victim posts any dispute in there saying he got scammed by "blahblah".  You just have to show enough proof to make sure we believe you.

IE:
Chat Log
Any Personal Messages
MSN
Bitcoin Balance after/before trade.


Then we hear 2 sides of the story, if the scammer is proven to be a scammer, they get banned.  That's how it's done on several other forums I know  Grin

I suspect many BTC sellers would prefer not to have their email addresses publicly published on the message board. So instead, people publish the md5 hash. Then, when you're considering buying from a potential seller and you have their email address, you hash it and check if anyone else posted that hash. That way only the people who have transacted with or are about to transact with the sellers have access to their email addresses.
