Whilst we are at it cant we set up a programme to encourage members to snitch on well known spammers sites and dob them to Google? We could have a spam watch section where members report individual sites that get up their nose. We could discuss the sites that get tabled for report and if there is consenus add them to a snitch list.
I have on going probems with what has to be one if not more members of this forum who offer a submission service but I am sure they would think twice if we started working together, tracking them and making life uncomfortable for them.

The idea here would be to go looking for the submission services who believe that they have an absolute right to piss in every corner of every room. I doubt we would have any problem identifying and tracking the sites they work on. And once again it will give emerging webmasters something to do, as well as an alternative way of marketing their sites. That is if we set up the process that allows them to get their sites listed in the Spotlight in exchange for the work they do.
Assume we end up with a list of 100 emerging directories. Its not going to cost a damned thing but what about the impact on this community. Instead of just a handful of regulars we would be hosting 100 bright eyed and bushy tailed directory masters hell bent on proving their sites are ten times better than the wannabee's that got penalised last year. The interesting bit will be to see whether the link brokers pick up the challenge and if not whether we cant find our own and start stealing some of their thunder.
Will it get noticed? Will other forums follow suit? Who knows but surely its worth a try?
Why would you want a snitch page? Won't that create the exact kind of thing we are trying to get away from that other forums engage in? They all group together and attack sites who they find it too hard to compete with.

Not at all. What I would like to see is a community that is committed to building for the future. What I am suggesting is that we build this forum as a resource for link brokers who are looking for sites that offer them long term value. What I am suggesting is that we challenge rookie webmasters to get involved and to contribute and to spotlight their sites. There is a difference between comittment and reason and sharp pointy teeth that are left to run wild. That's the other side of the Island. Dont want to go there. What I am talking about is the alternative to all that.
