can you wait before adding a website on spendbitcoin, btcdeals was a scamm and I have been scammed because I thought it was a good site (it was on your site)
I am very sorry to hear about your experience with btcdeals. I put them on my site because they had a good reputation on the forums at the time. I took them down as soon as I saw some shady feedback on them here on the forums. I have no experience with them so I cannot say anything good our bad about them.
After I pulled them down I started a new policy of linking the btc stores on my site to a survey on the forums to rate your experience with them so that people can make up their own minds on who to trust. Treat it like ebay ratings. Choose how much to trust someone based on the ratings they have received.
If you can think of another way for me to verify the trustworthiness of sellers, please let me know.
