Letsgetchecked

First of all, I thought it was a easy test system. I order several kits. I wanted my liver and kidney tested. First of all, I want to say, my skin is hypersensitive. I ordered a letsgetchecked test kit because I was looking for a non painful test. Then, I discovered I was wrong. The more i looked into it and the more it was not ok. First of all, they ask you to prick a finger, this is one of the most sensitive part of the body. Then, you must massage your finger over and over again, to obtain enough blood for the test sample.
They suggest to use several lancets and prick you several times, if you can't get it. This is exactly my case. I think I would have needed to prick myself several times. Then it is your job to extract enough blood from your body to pour the blood sample tubes.
After several tries, I understood it was easier and less painful to go to a medical lab and let a proffessional nurse pricks you. The professionals know where to prick you. They know to get a good amount of blood from your body in a short period without you being aware of it.

They changed their domain name from sfm-offshore.com to sfm.com. They have a very bad reputation on sitejabber.com. Take a look at the reviews of sfm-offshore.com on sitejabber and you will understand.

GSA SER and GSA SER captcha breaker used to be good. Now, it fails recognizing open source forums like SMF (both GSA SER and the breaker). The developper neglected the engines (the little program that helps recognize a CMS or a forum platform). I saw it because i discovered that in the URL sent to google for scraping website, it used http://www.google.com rather than https://www.google.com. It is now highly inefficient. I noticed the program crawls script platform (example phpbb) and it is unable to understand creating a profile. The developper should focus on the engines to ensure GSA SER finds and create accounts on forums, bookmarking websites...
By the way, proxies aren't banned from google because of high number of requests but because of the URL that GSA sends to google which is highly suspicious. That's because Sven , the developer of GSA didn't update the requests sent to Google since many years.
About GSA captcha breaker, it fails understanding from where the captcha comes. For instance, I had a captcha from phpbb (basic installation with no modification at all). Captcha breaker understood it was an "unknown captcha" even if it came from a default installation of phpbb

I strongly advise you not to order code signature at this company. They have very heavy never ending due diligence.

You better sell your application through the Microsoft store only and buy your developer signature from Apple if it is for MacOS. The Microsoft store procedure is very light. You can submit an application to Microsoft store without signing and Microsoft signs the application on your behalf. The membership is very cheap in both cases (apple and microsoft) : almost $100 each for a company. Don't focus on "standalone" distribution. We wasted 1 month for code sign. and this could have been used for marketing.

For the Mac App store, it is really easy to get a code certificate from Apple.
The membership of a developer account for Mac and PC are very cheap in both cases (apple and microsoft) : almost $100 each for a company. Don't focus on "standalone" distribution. We wasted 1 month for code sign. and this could have been used for marketing.

I was a Cj.com member. At some point I received money from cj.com nevertheless, I noticed the website was very slow. One day, my affiliate program has been stopped for no reasons. However, my affiliate links were still in place on my website and there were always functioning. In other words, I was still sending customers to their website but I didn't receive money for it. Other times, I have subscribed to affiliate programs. Since I didn't make enough money cj.com closed my account several times. However, from a marketing point of view, visitors of my website still clicked on the affiliate links and visited the target website. I subscribed to other affiliate programs and had no problems at all. Cj.com is special. This is i think one of the only website with which I had problem. Furthermore after closing my account, they sent me spam.
Cj.com looks appealing to webmasters and merchant but in fact, many affiliate programs are from websites that look like scams and aren't serious. A website owner can suffer from the bad reputation of those affiliate programs. Website owners waste their time with affiliate programs that aren't serious at all.
Furthermore, the website itself cj.com wasn't available or very slow several times.

I am surprised to see how many good reviews I can read about prestashop online. I bought several addons that didn't work and discovered that the support of Prestashop is really bad. The prestashop comunity is very unactive and small. When you go for prestashop , you are forced to hire high paid programmers who are the only one s to understand prestashop

They understood what any bank customer needs. As little due diligence as possible. They never block money transfer in Europe. A simple website with the right data. There is no token that you must use. The application is simple. There is the minimum of handling. Also, they are available at Office hours by Live chat which is the best possible way of communication. Also, you can receive you card everywhere in Europe.

I bought online a service to incorporate a Gibraltar company. I followed the list of required papers for due diligence. However, after I provided the papers they asked me to provide other papers. One was my personal tax report. It was not listed in the requirements.
I had none for the country where i lived because I moved to this new country
They didn't reimburse me even if I told them I could not provide the personal tax report. They are located in Hong Kong, and there is nothing I could do further.

I think they looked for additional due diligence to block the process. They only have a real incorporation office for HK and then they just contact other incorporation agents from all over the world to incorporate a company or open a bank account. Their site makes you believe that things are going to be easier if you hire them, but it is not true.

By the way, this is review is a real one, maybe unlike other reviews here for this company. Take the number of reviews into consideration and you will understand.

Avangate

Blocked purchase after payment confirmation. They ask for due diligence (additional papers) after you pay. Avoid them at any price. This can delay a purchase by 24 hours.

I think that Avangate is one of the only payment processor that block payment for due diligence after a successful paypal payment confirmation. After i performed a paypal payment on the Avangate payment page, Avangate sent me link to my email address to confirm my paypal email address. This is done AFTER the reception of the successful payment from Paypal to confirm the payment!!! Then, even after the successful payment and the successful link confirmation they blocked the delivery of the service (a VPN service) because they wanted more due diligence.

I really wonder if all of that is legal because their process isn't mentioned upfront. Since they are located in the Netherlands, it would be worth notifying the authorities in the Netherlands. it is like going to the supermarket paying by a credit card, receiving a receipt for confirmation of payment and the cashier would keep all the items you have bought saying, "now we have to perform additional checkups and i will keep your items".

they are also lots of complaints on trustpilot about avangate. This also includes people using avangate as merchants & affiliates. I also had a problem with them as an affiliate.

Stack Exchange

My advice:
Don't share your knowledge for free on Stackexchange, you will never get rewarded for it. Better create a blog.

The information quality of this website is over-estimated. Normally we should have answers from very wise people. However, they are users on this website who don't deserve their points and don't really answer or get in a debate rather than answering.

From a technical point of view, many answers should be very simple to get. Either the person who answers has the necessary lines of code, lines of command or directive. Most of the time, they argue and you can do NOTHING with what they say. They just fill up the blank. I am suspicious about the +1 those low quality answers get. I wonder if some people didn't create bots just to get a better ranking.

You may read 5 answers thinking they are helpful and after thinking about it, you discover none of them are useful for your problem. Stackexchange is an ersatz of a help website.

Just like for Quora, people pretend to be knowledgeable about subjects but they don't.

There is only a small percentage of knowledgeable people on Stackexchange, and those people are never rewarded just like they should.

Server Fault

Please consider another technical Q&A website if you want to gain reputation in the business. In fact, this website has stupid rules. For instance, if your question is too broad, you can get a minus 4 because 4 moderators have thought your question is too broad. If you don't type exactly what they ask you with their typo and their rules you can get a -1 or -2.
From a score perspective, even quora is way better. At serverfault, i saw people with huge score and very little knowledge and i still wonder why they have so big scores.
Don't forget my warnings and think about it when you want to contribute to the website.

StackOverflow

StackOverflow

3/27/16

There are so many people on this website who don't deserve their score. They aren't knowledgeable at all.
1. Many answers don't answer any technical issue but they get well ranked which is a nonsense When it is technical it should be easy. step 1, step 2, step 3. it is not the case.
2. Some contributors are rude and they answer "read the manual", however they get thumbs up. How is it possible?
3. Here is the most important, people who share brilliant ideas and answers are not rewarded. It is not normal to see brilliant answers at the bottom of the page.
4. Some people are really arrogant and try to argue rather than being pro and get straight to the point.
5. There are minus 1 scores that are given and it is not rational. You may see people receiving minus one for no reasons.
6. The moderators are stupid nazis. They comment on questions and answers but there are stupid questions and answers with no moderation.

My advice:

Tip for consumers: Don't share your knowledge on StackOverflow you will not be rewarded, better create a blog. Your knowledge has lots of value. Better share your knowledge on your platform where no one will criticize you and where you can at least earn a bit of money thanks to your knowledge.
Don't trust what you read on StackOverflow. Some advice can break your program, your system.
Ask a pro, hire a pro, read a blog it is a better source of information.

I thought the fiverr freelancers were good due to the score system. I wanted two simple drawings for my website. i have asked a designer and rather than giving me back 2 drawings, he sent me 1 drawing and it was only a slight modification of his drawing example. i have sent to him additional requirements. At the end, the drawing didn't match my requirements and i was doubtful about the profile of those designers. My requirements were very simple. I needed a drawing of a little character holding a letter format paper. However, none of them were able to deliver this basic requirement.

I have experience with many many customer support teams from godaddy, bluehost & others... I didn't complain, but with gandi i have found them arrogant and unhelpful. I had a major problem and and they told me to do what i have tried already and could be checked from their end.
Also, i have not seen any whois privacy service. They only hide few information about yourself. Also their DNS editor is very complicated to use. The name of their servers is also complicated.
They provide free email service but today, the service is down since 3 hours.

I have tested their server cloud and found it was more expensive than other clouds.

It looks like a Q&A for technology and IT decision makers. In fact, it is an IT consulting company that uses this website to attract IT services buyers. Also, i wonder whether the contents that experts add online is not used for commercial purposes.

I have asked them a legal question and i received a very generic answer that i could have find online. The answer was accurate but i expected an answer with a better understanding that i could have myself as i am not a legal expert.

I have to say, their website is beautiful but more importantly it is incredibly fast. For instance when you do a domain name search for availability you don't need to press ok. Answers come right away. So it is really handy when you are looking for several word.
Then, their admin panel is really easy to read. I enjoyed the ID protection option. It works well and you know whether it is activated or not. You don't need to check in the whois to see whether you see your real address and email address.
Once again, when you are in admin panel, it is fast because everything is loaded at once. When you click on a tab for one domain, the info is displayed instantly.
web severs owners will appreciate the fact that they can add IPV6 glue records to their server.
