I agree to some extend to this suggestion, but how do you distinguish between the bloggers for instance... is it everyone who has their own site with some programs listed and how about when the members who run a monitor actually participate in a program thread with opinions and help etc?
There is a huge difference between some. I realise that the ones being referred to are the ones who never answer any questions which are asked in a thread and are promoting sites as a business rather than taking an active part in being a member. They simply come in, post paid and if extreme they post "fast" or a few other words at the most, that's it.
But who is going to monitor the monitors? Sounds like a lot of work, but I fully agree that is is becoming increasingly annoying, especially in the HYIP section but also more and more in the AutoSurf section.
Also distinguishing which programs are making selective payments.... it's a nightmare to a newbie who has no idea who is who and why the payment posts are basically invalid.
Add to that PAID posters, often with multiple usernames.
Perhaps it would be easier to make a rule that if the monitor or blogger is featured within the program, they are not allowed to post paid posts in the thread at all. They can however add useful comments in the thread explaining how things work etc. This way the program will still get some attention and it will be much more useful than just paid posts which really belong on the monitors own site.
They can post for instance why they chose that program, what features they like and help other members.
Perhaps even force them to make a post in the thread that they are a ranking monitor for the program.
The other members of the program or any MMG could actively help monitoring this by checking the ratings page on the site when realising a monitor is posting in the thread. If the monitor is not listed on the site, you would have to assume they are just an ordinary member like everyone else who will not be receiving selective payments (perhaps I am wrong about that??).
In general the bloggers are not a problem as far as I have noticed. I do realise that sometimes selective payments are made and often the bloggers are those who get theirs first... of course they do, the program want them to keep telling their followers that they are paying. But I also see that some of them pull back and tell their downline subscribing to their newsletter and bulletins to hang on, since there are others reporting delays or missing payments, they often post in the thread as well that they have sent this info out etc.
But how do we distinguish once again, who does the right thing and who doesn't? It would have to be a joint effort and I guess wouldn't work in all cases, but some perhaps and that's way better than none
Well obviously it is up to oneself to do their own DD and search around for information before joining or adding funds to a program.
Do your research etc.
The bloggers are not that hard to research, but the monitors are impossible in most cases. They (the monitors) do not post their opinions, just payments! In general anyhow.
OK enough blabber... some food for thought
