    crappydads.com

    I was hoping some people could investigate and rate crappydads.com

    The site came to my attention through the WordPress forum after a user was seeking help to get information removed:

    Please correct me if I've posted to the wrong forum. This wordpress website site called "Crappydads.com" has double posted our family and refuses to respond to us apart from hiring a lawyer i've tried for over a year to contact their crappy site. had posted a deadbeat parent over a year ago and the situation is now resolved asked them to please take down the submission. no response, nada!

    They censor complaints on their site from people wanting to remove their submissions. It said a submission can be removed when i posted.
    They do not respond and we are desperate! It is affecting our children, our family trying to work things out and our family business.

    These website owners have never once given any response.

    Can WordPress help?

    Whois supplies no real contact info.

    Both my child and i have gotten anonymous threats concerning this post. There needs to be a way to contact Crappydads.com
    info@crappydads.com never responds!

    I have had a look at the site, and the site is safe to use, however they are positing a lot of Personally Identifiable Information with the following disclaimer:

    The content that is published contains rumors, speculation, assumptions, opinions, and factual information. Postings may contain erroneous or inaccurate information and all images are credited to the submitter. The owner of this site does not ensure the accuracy of any content and is indemnified and held harmless from any claims brought by any third party relating to any aspect of CrappyDads.com.

    There does not appear to be any mechanisms in place to check the validity of submitted material, and I reckon if this site was UK based would be closed for multiple breaches to the Data Protection Act (does the US have an equivalent?)

    For some reason this site reminds me of STDcariers.com

    RE: crappydads.com

    At least one of their pages has been taken down by Facebook in the past - hxxp://crappydads.com/news/facebook-likes-deadbeat-dads/ . I've just found another so I will report that to FB & look for any others they may have.

    On one of their FB pages they recommend a page - Most Wanted Deadbeat Parents . Searching this shows some worrying results. It seems this is quite common in the US google

    RE: crappydads.com

    Thanks everyone for the extra info, I've posted a link to this thread on the original post on the WordPress forum. If the user ever gets any resolution to their problem, I'll post an update.

    @shazza: I noticed some law enforcement agencies in the US were highlighting what they term 'deadbeats' on their Facebook pages as a name and shame campaign, but it was few and far between, and I suppose they had the relevant paperwork to prove their claims and make it legal (but not nice), but I didn't realise it was so open ended with quite a lot of sites jumping on the bandwagon.

    The Google link you gave is certainly an eye opener, quite a few sites open to abuse by a vengeful ex.

    This is why I do not trust Google. They have too many issues that remain unresolved.

    RE: Google

    Same here. Google is not reliable in terms of protection from spam and scam. For that we only have to rely on mywot.com

    I've modified your link from google.co.uk and removed the Chrome browser parameters to:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=Most+Wanted+Deadbeat+Parents

    There's a difference from "Joe WebOwner" putting up a site which has no method to substantiate / verify truth from hearsay.

    Review the OP, this is not about posting information online, but rather the refusal to remove upon submitter's request ... had posted a deadbeat parent over a year ago and the situation is now resolved asked them to please take down the submission. no response

    That is what earned my personal rating as well as the fact the domain owner hides behind whois privacy; no means to resolve disputes ...

    There are valid sites, for example the State of Illinois owns a domain: deadbeatsillinois.com - whois
    Though I personally disagree with it's existence; Child Support Services has more important things to do than to create or pay a 3rd party to create sites such as these. However, once an individual is caught up their information is removed from the site as automatic as it was included.

    That's the difference between crappy***.com domains and the exampled IL USA site.
