This space exists to warn others about genuinely dangerous people in the travel community. This is a MODERATED forum, meaning your posts will not appear on the board until they pass review by the moderators. This IS NOT a place to talk shit on someone you had a disagreement with, it is a place to warn the community about genuinely dangerous people. Please treat it accordingly.

Thread comments are also vetted by the moderators, and your comments will be deleted if they do not contain information relevant to the discussion. Similar to our spam policy, comments like 'that sucks' or 'someone should beat him up' are not helpful to the discussion and will be removed. Comments of sympathy to victims are allowed.

When posting a thread in this area please be descriptive as possible, add photos or other identifying information, and anyone else that can collaborate your story if possible. The more information you provide, the better prepared your fellow traveler may be if they are unfortunate enough to run across that person.

While rare, some people have chosen to use this area as a way to get revenge on others by posting false accusations. Unfortunately, this is another reason threads/posts need to be vetted by our moderators before being made public. Submissions that are lacking detail/evidence will be deleted by the moderators and false accusations will result in a permanent ban from the website. Keep in mind that if you are thinking of posting a false accusation against someone, you are damaging the credibility of real victims while being an incredible asshole; in addition, the ultimate irony might be us creating a thread here to warn others about you.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I've made some layout adjustments to featured content threads. They should look much prettier on mobile devices, although I'm still working on how the main featured page displays on those devices...
Due to a software bug, I've had to disable the ability for users to delete their accounts until a fix is released (hopefully no more than a few days).
