I'm beginning to think that needs "good guys" and
"bad guys" pages so that we can all make doubly sure we're not doing
business with spammers (and just as importantly, a community resource
for reviews of used equipment vendors).  Thoughts?

I like the idea of a 'these guys were good to me' page, I'd be a
little hesitant (yes, lame) to call out folks unless someone's ready
to deal with the 1:1000 crazy that says someone on cluepon slandered
them (libel? I always get them backwards).

I like the idea for a page that recommends folk, but would suggest dating the comments (so that someone who *used* to be good doesn't have the same cachet as the person who got added yesterday). There'd also be the need to make sure, somehow, that recommendations were not (shall we say) motivated by something other than altruism.

On the other hand, there doesn't need to be a bad guys page. The archives are public, and mirrored multiple times. Google and Yahoo will provide that service for you, free of charge.
