    Please note that we no longer reference/recommend the bad trader list, as the person maintaining it was temporarily banned last night due to actions that required an account review. Today we detected attempts to create multiple accounts on BA, which is grounds for permanent banning.

    We also banned a small handful of other BA members (all beer traders) for numerous TOS and copyright violations, personal threats, slander, impersonation, etc, etc. It's a damn shame ... but these people chose their own path and many of them had numerous warnings prior to this.

    Moving forward, Team BA is currently exploring ideas to help beer traders identify bad ones. We've also made a copy of the bad trader list (a public document) just in case we want to import it into a beer trader feedback system or other solution, however we won't be referencing/recommending a bad trader list controlled by a single person again.

    In the meantime, trade with caution friends.

    Thanks,

    Jason & Todd
