POLL DESCRIPTION

Last week, TMP issued a Bad Trader Alert (a consumer warning) on Crusader29. There's been a lot of discussion about that, so it seems time to ask the question...

Should TMP issue Bad Trader Alerts?

yes

TMP should continue to issue Bad Trader Alerts when warranted.

yes, with limits

TMP should continue to issue Bad Trader Alerts when warranted, but situations which involve conflicts of interest (i.e., bad debts to TMP) should be subject to outside review.

yes, with commission

TMP should continue to issue Bad Trader Alerts, but there should be some kind of TMP commission or committee that advises the Editor.

no - not TMP's mission

TMP's mission should not include policing the gaming industry.

no - leave it to the boards

There is no need for a Bad Trader Alert. Just let people post complaints on the Consumer Affairs board and leave it at that.

no - too much controversy

Issuing Bad Trader Alerts causes too much acrimony, and makes the website less enjoyable.

yes, with vote

TMP should continue to issue Bad Trader Alerts, but there should first be a poll to see if the members support it.

no - other

TMP should not issue Bad Trader Alerts.

no - too much power

Bad Trader Alerts from TMP risk putting too much power in the hands of a single website/webmaster.
