As I don't run a pool and I'm not familiar with the software, forgive me if this is either repetitive or completely off-base:

For those who develop pool mining software, would it be too much to ask to display a mining pool's wallet address for every coin. Something on the front screen? Something that would have to be verified versus the config file or the active wallet and where a pool is pointed at. I realize that would require help from each -qt dev team, but I think most would be willing to assist in order to help the respective coins "fans".

I'm wondering how many pools scam the miners by attracting them with 0% fees and then change the pool wallet to keep all the blocks without reporting them on what's being actively mined? I'm seeing a lot of new pools pop up (good, variety is the spice of life... within reason) and some even have some impressive combined hashrate, but no blocks.

Ultimately, there should always be transparency between a miner and a pool. Pools get scammed all the time and so they employee specific pay schemes to prevent hoppers and such. What about protection for the miner too?
