GetPaidToBoycott (GPTB) : double standard !!

** This post will stay at the top of my blog and is dated 2009, be sure to scroll down if you want to read about PTC/PTR reviews **

I do NOT support GetPaidToBoycott

BEWARE of GPTBoycott for they are not what they proclaim to be.
They have NO CREDIBILITY, NO AUTHORITY & most importantly, NO LICENSE!
And if you value your privacy "beware" of joining there.

That's what they claim "The aim of GPTBoycott is to name the offending 'get-paid' companies, and to urge our visitors to stop using them. If you're tired of companies stealing your time and money, and if you want to know which sites to avoid, take a look around this site, and help us stamp out fraudulent behaviour online!"

"Once upon a time" I thought GPTB was usefull, until I understood their double standard : do what we say, not what we do... and their illogical complaint management :

*Accusing sites to run ponzi scheme ads, MLM, adsense, while they do widely advert them on GPTB
* Allowing complaints when the problem is ALREADY solved by the program owner and when the member who wrote the complaint did already retract.
*Accepting complaints against sites from people when they don't have ANY possibility to know if these people are actually members of the said site (in fact they have no way to verify anything)
Means that everybody can post a complaint about a site : a cheater who was caught and not paid...a member who wants a personal revenge with the PO can call all his friends to post a complaint wether his friends are or not can even post multiple complaints as long as you do it from different computers with different names, or even anonymous...
*10 complaints have to be raised against a site to have it boycotted wether this said site has only hundreds of members or thousands>> this is not logical!
*They allow complaints , but don't allow praises : that means that only one voice can be heard.
* Mods and admins of the forum being judge and jury, which is unethical, and allowing bashing and name calling, as well as personal attacks towards people when they try to defend a program or when they don't agree...

Last but not least : while I see many "paying " and honnest programs listed in their watch or boycott list, many known scams are not!
I do certainly forget much, but this was just to tell some reasons why I do not support them anymore. If you're interested further you can visit some of the links I provide hereunder.
2 established programs are involved, these are since years in the PTR industry, and are known to have ALWAYS paid their members!

Very good Lyloo, lots of useful information and well presented. It is good to see that others realize what gptB is all about and among other things that are flawed there,how dishonest their boycotting procedures actually are.Newbies may trust in what they read there so it is good to see the truth about them coming out.

Great analogy on GPTBoycott! Couldn't have said it better myself.

That site needs to be banned from the Internet!

This is the first time I've ever heard of GPTB, but it seems to me like a bad idea anyway since one would be persuaded to boycott for reasons of financial gain as opposed to reasons of ethic. Nice post, Lyloo.
