What I mean is, if I want to do a transaction with a given person or company, what sort of assurance can I have that they are legit?

I know one developer mentioned a website that he was working on where a business could become "listed", so you could check on whether the bitcoin address given is associated with the company you believe it is associated with.  What is this website?  And is there anything else like it?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.
