What do you think of Trader Talk?


I haven't been a member here for very long, so I hope this hasn't been done to death, but I just thought I'd get some opinions.

Even though it seems to produce a lot of dead horse beatings and threads where people are called out as scammers prematurely, I still like the whole concept of the "Trader Talk" section. It's nice to know that if you have major issues with another member, you can make them known publicly, so that others can be forewarned.

I'm also a member on another RC site, and I had a trade issue a while back with a member. Calling somebody out is against their rules, so other than possibly giving them bad feedback, you're pretty much SOL. I would have liked to have warned people about my terrible experience. (actually I did, but the thread was deleted because it violated the "don't call people out rule")

What does everybody else think of Trader Talk? Is it good to have open discussion about bad experiences, or does it breed more problems than it solves?

P.S. I know Trader Talk isn't just used to air out grievances and report scammers, but I suppose that's the part that I'm focusing on.

It is truly my source of entertainment. It is quite ridiculous some of the things posted on this section. That being said, it can be quite helpful in figuring out new scams, people not to deal with etc.

Trader talk has it's place.

Many times though people start a thread calling people scammers, frauds, and cheats, then give partial information about why they feel that way. Of course other members come in and ask for more details, then offer their opinion. Sometimes the OP takes that information and does something usefull with it, other times they get defensive and angry when they don't find that everyone agrees with them. Sometimes the other party in the transaction gets involved, and all of the information comes out. Sometimes things get ironed out and everyone is happy. Sometimes. I like those threads the best.

Also love seeing threads about potential new trading partners and companies where I can spend my secret slush fund.

It definitely has it's place because it's the only way for people to put these scammers out in the open. I have seen some premature accusations, for sure, but the thread usually clearly shows that. And, people that realize they were wrong often delete the thread or change the title.

P.S. Just for future reference... THERE, THEIR, and THEY'RE all have different meanings.
