I would not use them.
There have been a bunch of issues there lately.
If you read the thread some is FUD and a bunch of it legitimate issues. For more consistent payouts I would say BTCGuild.
For fewer problems I would say BTCG.
There is only one in that list that has public stats and 0% fees. That is Eligius.
I'm leaning towards Eligius at the moment. If there are no objections, I will make this change later tonight when I get a chance to set it up.
Given the criteria, Eligius is the best choice, however I do agree with BTCGuild or Bitminter choices. In spite of its fee, BTCGuild in particular will return slightly more BTC over time than Eligius, but less NMC. There are several long-running benchmarks that show this. With either of those two choices we could get around the public stats issues with the API. Perhaps a page at nastyfans.org that would pull the info so we could see it.
The only concern I would have with Bitminter is their recent hostility towards Multipool.us based on an ignorance of statistics among the users. I wouldn't want something like that to happen to nastyfans.
I wouldn't be too concerned about payout issues on Eligius. Things get backed up from time to time, but they always pay. The biggest issue there is the affect of the ongoing DDoS attacks that will occasionally slow mining and thus lower reward.
