I am thinking about making my own thread entitled "These people are just wasting other user's time" so I can put people like Dank Phinneas Gage and Tomatocage along with MPO-PR etc.  Since this abortion of a thread has been allowed to continue why would mine not be?

it's called the "ignore" button and the "unwatch" link at the top of the thread.

Cry me a river. Would you rather I start creating a bunch of shell accounts and start scamming people out of their coins?

The best course of action is to not immediately start selling gift cards or asking for loans as soon as you break out of newbie jail Smiley  Being on the list doesn't necessarily mean you're a scammer, as there are a few who have been on the list who have had successful trades.  This is merely a list of people who might be high-risk borrowers because of the indicators listed in the OP.

User shoopwooper is definitely a scammer.  He posted about some b.s. mining program needing funding, and then disappeared without a trace, never mentioning who he received funding from. You can probably change 'pending' to confirmed scammer.

Why is constitution's name attached to someone else's forum post?

I've helped OP to update. It's probably a typo.

Man, I'm stickying your thream for the usefulness. Any non-brain-dead lenders should take in this thread before potentially getting scammed. Thank you for what you've done for the community.

This should be a must read for noobs, just like the logged hours. Possibly read this for 4 hours?  Grin
