IMHO trust feedback should be disabled from newbies to avoid these kind of things. If a newbie is scammed and want a red trust for the user who scammed him, he can post proofs in the scam accusation thread and higher members can do the thing for him.


Default Trust is to help Newbies until they can make their own circle of trust.

I am in the same boat.

I opened a new thread here because it is happening to me as well right now.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1116438.0

I run www.Bitcoin-Brokers.org and have been on these forums for 2 years. In that time, this forum has helped me sell $7,000,000 worth of bitcoin over the course of 6500 different transactions.

Every single one of these 6500 transactions has been perfect. The buyer always received what they paid for. My review thread has 80,000 views, with hundreds of comments, and there is not one single complaint over the course of two years.

Then out of nowhere, a member from these forums contacts me because he wants to join my team of sellers, and have me direct my buyers to his bank account. After private messaging back and forth for a couple of days, I told him that I would not allow him to sell his bitcoin through Bitcoin-Brokers.

He then posts a negative ratings on my trust saying things like I am a scammer, and running a ponzi scheme, and that I cannot be trusted, and that I am an asshole. (it literally says that now)

Now I have those dreaded red letters next to my profile. Any new buyers visiting my previously perfect review thread could easily be scared off when they see the trust rating suggesting that they should exercise caution when dealing with me.

It is not fair when I run a perfectly honest service, and a disgruntle person who has never transacted one single dollar with my service can smear my reputation.

Anyways, I am not trying to hijack your thread. I wanted to express empathy because you are not alone.

I just do not like this!
http://prntscr.com/7qwnfg
I don't care if they are trusted or not, I just want my profile clean.
As this is not justice and this cannot be tolerated.
Big deal making 100s of profiles and making someone bad by posting -rep/negative feedback - anyone can do it.
It is just too lame to allow it. Even worst is that it stays on your profile as admins/mods don't deleting it.

Untrusted feedback

These ratings are from people who are not in your trust network. They may be totally inaccurate.

You're not the first nor will you be the last. Deal with it as many others do and move on.

Read the sticky of rules at the top of the forums

Quote
Q: Why isn't trust moderated?
A: Feedback isn't moderated (except for obvious cases such as pure advertising, hundreds of identical empty/gibberish reports on one user) for the same reason as scams - too much room for abuse.

To be honest, deleting reports would actually give room to abuse. Imagine if someone with a huge amount of trust decided to start attacking people.
He could easily report all the negative trust against him, and admin's would side with him as he would have tonnes of trust.
Untrusted feedback is hidden by default too, so don't worry about it too much.

Admins will not delete trust except in extreme cases and you're just wasting your own time.

No longer active on bitcointalk, however, you can still reach me via PMs if needed.
