Can we add reputable site-checkers to the About or FAQ section?

I feel like one out of every three or four posts is, “Is ‘this site’ a scam?”

The most upvoted responses are, “Here, use x or y site. They say the domain was only registered two months ago, it’s probably not safe.”

I feel like having the resource readily available might help cut down on some of those posts.

    Nah, it won’t.

    People don’t want to do research when they are scared/worried/jacked-up emotionally. They won’t use the “search” function, won’t do a Google search…instead we get the “OMG GUYS HELP ME I’M SO SCARED IS THIS A SCAM?” posts ’cause the primitive brain has taken over at that point….

  2. Typically I just Google “Whois checker”. GoDaddy.com has one with a nice interface but you can really use any website for this — it’s just something that shows you when the website was registered and some other information about the registration (if it isn’t hidden).

    I don’t think it will save much time though.
