Recently, Community faced many cases in which highly reputable members who act as an escrow won't able to keep their promises up to the Mark.
At Last, they are found to be Scammer due to whatever reason which causes major fund loss to community members and loss of reputation to the forum also.

Hence, I think a KYC(Identity) verification should be done, of all the members who are in Default trust list and also who are dealing with a lot of funds over the period of time.

Hope this will help the community gain more trust of users/members over the community and the escrow providers also.

thanks

It is the community which makes accounts reputable.
The forum has a hands-off approach about moderating trust / scams and that is preferable. People shouldn't be comfortable about using a particular escrow just because a KYC has been done.

It was just a Suggestion and whatever you said i am totally agree with that but KYC verification can give an upper hand to catch the Scammer or it can decrease the amount of such happenings and it is upto the Member that he wants to be Verified or not.
Few cases that comes to mind, also shocked the bitcointalk community when they happended, cause very highly reputable member did some scams, I am not aware behind the reason could be a compromised account or something.

This is absurd. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general is about anonymity and privacy, not KYC on the main Bitcoin forum. Most of the dirty 'business' is fueled by farmed accounts, shills, account trading and such. There weren't that many cases of DT members doing something shady or reputable escrows bailing (e.g. master-p is one case).

FYI there is a huge document trading industry on the dark net. This would be almost *trivial* to mitigate with someone else's documents.

People would just sell the documents on the forum marketplace.
