    No, just no. Other forums have done this, and even though scamming goes down, activity decreases, number of successful trades decreases, and number of new users joining decreases. The best way to not get scammed is to use a MM. Mods are doing a good job of banning PBMs quickly. The only thing you can do is tell people "if you trade with a newbie, expect to get scammed." If you don't want to get scammed, use a MM and only trade with clraik+. If you trade with low levels, expect to get scammed. Sometimes in this business you gotta risk it to get the biscuit.

    This is exactly why the forum has middlemen and women.
    There are so many of them and all of them are willing to help.

    I'd say no to this as well.
    For every one new member that joins who's a scammer, there might be 3 legit newbies who wanna actually contribute, buy and better the forum. I've not sold anything here yet but when I get around to arranging my stuff, I'm only gonna trade with clraik+ ranked members. Just makes it easier, and using a MM of course.
