I am torn between thinking "good!" and "oh no, not another one".

:oops: same as what I posted here today viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3187 :lol: :lol:

Teach me not to check the whole forum first :lol: :lol:

Like you Tim ........oh no not another one :roll: I have my concerns its being run by the same company supplying points :| somewhat of a conflict of interests I'd think :?

At the end of the day they are a company and they will be out to make a profit, which in itself isnt wrong, but I just feel something independant would be better.

The government actively bringing together the disparate lists into an open-source database (just like what Kevin is trying to do) and then declaring it the official master list would be better.

I fear this will be yet another incomplete list to add to Kevin's tally of 90+
