What about a mega thread where people can leave some info regarding tradespeople? I am sick of people committing to come and quote and not turning up, or even come round to measure but then drop off the radar completely with no pricing given.

It's wasting everyone's time and meaning genuine people who want the job are probably missing out to time wasters

Could there also be one for us tradesmen to name & shame customers who are out when we call to quote or who just dont have the first idea about the job they are asking us to quote.

You are entitled to your opinion, but name calling breaks forum rules.

I'm going to answer this one and then close it, because the forum's position is not up for discussion.

If we had bottomless pockets to use to pay the legal fees that would result from allowing naming and shaming then we may take the choice to allow the negative feedback.

We don't have bottomless pockets.

The simple answer is that the forum does not have the resources to survive even getting to court to defend the negative feedback that may be posted on the site, so we took the choice that in order to protect the forum we simply cannot allow the sort of feedback which could kill the forum.

If you want to leave negative feedback then please do so on a site where you alone bear the legal responsibility for whatever you post.
