Unbelievable...

"I've read everything and I don't really care what people think. I want to learn from David, period!"

:LOL::LOL::LOL:

He's gonna learn alright.

How does it work over there? I just tried to post and it said I couldn't because I've been put on ignore by the thread starter ("David Jefferson"). :LOL:

With features like that it seems like it's the real scammers' paradise.

We complain about T2W but this little episode at Babypips makes me think it really isn't all that bad here.

I don't post there I was just reading the thread for lulz. But you're right it really isn't that bad here compared to that stuff.

Peter
It's awful. I honestly didn't realise how good we have it here - gurus over there, well, words fail me how they can protect themselves.

There'll be a few sorry morons at babypips, that's for sure.

Let's see. Someone has just created this thread over there:

David Jefferson

Feel like adding something over there PB? I don't know the thread starter, but I'd imagine you won't be blocked from that particular thread. :LOL:
I started a very similar thread last night. Got shut down after 5 minutes for 'flaming' by a mod called pipzilla.

Here's my pm to him:

You remove my posts warning others of a potential scam artist at work because of flaming!

Babypips has really gone down hill. You let a con man such as DAVID JEFFERSON con others out of money and have the audacity to remove my posts.

In addition to the above I decided to email the 'mod team' if you can call them that. A lose* fraternity of idiots if you ask me. Here is their response.

Thanks for the information. This is actually the first complaint regarding this user we've received. And we also see that he only has one thread in the forums started a little over two weeks ago.

We would hardly consider that an endorsement (which we don't give to anyone anyway).

It does look to be an active thread with many users voicing their feelings for and against David Jefferson. I see that our moderators have removed posts in that thread for various reasons, so they know the thread exists. I will discuss this matter with them for some background.

I would like to state that we are often faced with heated discussions between our members, usually regarding the credibility of another member. We ultimately like to leave it in the hands of members to decide who they want to trust, using the experiences of others to formulate that decision if they like. Now, if Forum Policies are broken, we step in. If there's foolproof evidence of a wrong doing, we step in. But most situations of credibility or value or worth aren't as clear cut as that. We like to use the SPAM email analogy here: SPAM email to one person is a waste of time and productivity drain, but in the right circumstance, to another it's exactly what he was looking for. Now we're not saying this is the case here; we'll need to do a bit of investigating.

We'll look into David Jefferson and his forum behavior and see if we've missed something. Please feel free to respond to this email with anything else you'd like to share. Thanks for your time.

It seems babypips is killing all the posts and threads that warn of scams. Their headline says, "The beginner's guide to forex training" but they allow such cr@p, scams, and con artists post away and feast off the newbies they are attracting. Something is amiss for sure.
