I've being thinking about creating a website listing bitcoin scammers for the purposes of being indexed on search engines, so when someone (eg employer, parent) searches for "Bob Scamy" they'll see the listing somewhere on the search results. This would mean the site will need backlinks at the very least so it ranks high.

Currently, Google does not crawl the topics of bitcointalk very well (because there are so many of them).

Would any bitcoin website operator be interested in linking to a site if it existed?

Problem is knowing the real names of the scammers. Employers won't be searching for their forum names, after all. I know some scammers have been outed publicly though.

The other problem is you will get into legal trouble if you constantly claim person x y or z is a scammer. It will happen eventually.

The poster of the scam accusation would take legal liability if their claims are false. The site would host user submitted content.

All postings of scam accusations will be made by Trendon Shavers. Problem solved.

My name is Trendon Shavers. I scammed a whole mess of bitcoins and, rightfully so, received the "Scammer Tag". The following is a list of people in the same boat as I.

I just Googled: "SCAMMER * Member" bitcoin

But when I clicked the following:

In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 8 already displayed.
If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.

I get this:

About 2,100,000 results (0.16 seconds)

Looks like it's going to be one long-ass page.  Grin
