I do not know why the website has such a low rating when there is nothing bad with it. I think that it is just full of haters that hate nigeria. It does have ads but they are not the kind of ads that are forced on you like the popup ads.

I trust nairaland and I wonder why it has such a low rating when there is nothing that should make it have such a low rating. A website will only be dangerous to you if you let it be dangerous. it is upon you to be cautious.

I do not like this website because it is full if a lof of people that just have no common sense. The things that they post in the threads are pure nonesense and a lot of ads. There seems to be a promotion conspiracy on this webiste.

If you are a christian then I recommmend that you stay away from this website because it is definetly not for you. It has some very sensitive things and I think that it is why it has some very negative reviews.

Nairaland is a good place for you if you feel bored. it has some very interesting topics that will leave you laughing, crying and doing a lot of other things. I have never hated this website and neither have I seen anything wrong with it.

This website is not safe if you are the kind of person that likes a clean discussion . There are different topics but you will find other people that still post their things in the wrong areas. It is very annoying.

This is a website specifically for the nigerians. It is where they go to discuss a wide range of topis. You can try as many of them as you want. I think that the reason why it has such negative reviews is because it has some very adult topics.

It's the usual forum. There's nothing special about it. People share some information, ask for advice or give advice, just chatting on different topics. However, sometimes the topics are quite mature, so I would advise to visit this forum for those who are at least 16 years old. With regard to security, I don't even know, maybe at an average level on the forum.

Biggest Nigeria forum, I find it very clean and possible absolutely for many services. I am not sure why many people from Nigeria maybe even rate it low, cause I know it can solve all your local problems when you will have them.

I found nothing wrong with the site...But I didn't go looking for anything either. Most open forum sites come with a certain amount of "unsavory" information that will probably make unsuitable for children. I just do not understand where the very low rating of 2.7 is warranted?

It's either: A shop or other that uses SPAM to his promotion (adverts), even famous brands, deemed reliable, do the same now, I've seen public services in any country to use SPAM for their advancement (tourism, trade fairs, shows, festivals, etc..), there is only a small step for hospitals, police, governments, schools, ... will go do the same too. A disaster of modern times now affecting other means of mobile communications (smartphones, tablets, SMS, etc..). Or if it's either: An address used for SPAM, endless new addresses (even the wacky, with a letter changed, weird word, numbers, .......) are created permanently to bypass filters, updated constantly, that harassed and antispam services put to block this scourge! Apparently this is the feast of site creations including fake sites for spam, scams, to sell us (legally or illegally) their products or services, and pollute the planet with electric resources wasted, thank you also HOSTS complaisant with the SPAM and the world of profit! One day, the number of Internet domains used for SPAM extensively exceed the number of useful internet domains, like the number of SPAM received which represents 90% of e-mails that are received in the world! Proof here: http://www.cnet.com/news/report-spam-now-90-percent-of-all-e-mail/ /!\ A VERY IMPORTANT TIP /!\ : DON'T CLICK ON ANYLINK IN A SPAM, INCLUDING THE UNSUSCRIBE LINK, BECAUSE YOU WOULD CONFIRM THAT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IS VALID, TO BETTER SPAMMING YOU, SPAMS are very contagious with illegal resale data, unofficially legal in corrupt countries! REPORT DIRECTLY SUSPECTS E-MAIL, SMS OR CALL TO SERVICES PROVIDED FOR THIS PURPOSE THAT THE AUTHORITIES AND ASSOCIATIONS HAVE PUT IN PLACE TO COMBAT THIS PANDEMIC! ------------------------------------------------------------------ Il s'agit soit: Un commerce ou autres qui se sert du SPAM pour faire sa promotion, même des célèbres marques, réputé fiable en font de même maintenant, j'ai vu des services publics de n'importe quel pays utiliser du SPAM pour leur promotion (tourisme, expositions, salons, festivités, etc.), il n'y a qu'un pas à franchir pour que les hôpitaux, la police, les gouvernements, les écoles, ... , s'y mettent aussi. Un véritable désastre des temps modernes qui touche maintenant d'autres moyens de communications mobiles (smartphones, tablettes, SMS, etc.). Ou il s'agit sinon soit: Une des adresses servant pour le SPAM, une infinité de nouvelles adresses (même les plus farfelus, avec une lettre qui change, un mot bizarre, des chiffres, .......) sont créé en permanence pour contourner les filtres, mis a jour en permanence, que les harcelés et les services antispams mettent pour bloquer ce fléau! Apparemment c'est la fête des créations de site y compris des faux sites pour du spam, des arnaques, de la publicité pour nous vendre (légalement ou illégalement) leur produits, ou services, et polluer la planète avec des ressources électriques gaspillés, merci aussi les hébergeurs complaisants envers le SPAM et le monde du profit! Un jour, le nombres de domaines internet servant à du SPAM dépassera largement le nombre de domaines internet utiles, à l'instar du nombre de SPAM reçus qui représente 90% des e-mails qui sont reçus dans le monde! La preuve ici: http://www.cnet.com/news/report-spam-now-90-percent-of-all-e-mail/ /!\ UN CONSEIL TRÈS IMPORTANT /!\ : NE CLIQUEZ JAMAIS SUR N'IMPORTE QUEL LIENS DANS UN SPAM, Y COMPRIS LE LIEN DE DÉSABONNEMENT, VOUS NE FERAIS QUE CONFIRMER QUE VOTRE ADRESSE E-MAIL EST VALIDE, POUR MIEUX VOUS SPAMMER, le SPAM est très contagieux avec la revente illégale des données, officieusement légale dans des pays corrompus! SIGNALEZ DIRECTEMENT LES E-MAILS, LES SMS OU APPELS SUSPECTS VERS DES SERVICES PRÉVUS A CET EFFET QUE LES AUTORITÉS ET ASSOCIATIONS ONT MIS EN PLACE POUR LUTTER CONTRE CETTE PANDÉMIE!

I think the 419 scammers have left a bad taste in people's mouths. This site, from what I've seen, is essentially a forum where Nigerians, local and abroad, can communicate and discuss the topics pertinent to the Nigerian community.

I'm going to agree with MartiOwl on this comments page looking suspicious. There's 2 out of 5 rating for popularity, but there are all these comments... Usually a sign someone's playing games with the comments feature of MyWot. I have nothing to say about the actual site itself. I don't know anything about it, but this comments page is a yellow flag to me.

I have been a casual visitor to this site for years...nobody has ever phished me or spammed me from this site...it is a Nigerian site based outside the country and many of the forums use a lingo which you may not understand unless you have lived in Nigeria and learnt their pidgin....that doesn't make it suspicious or a forum for 419 scammers.....this are everyday Nigerians sharing their views...so whoever is blacklisting this site behave yourself and whitelist it....peace out
