In the golden age of HYIPs, the late 90's and early aughts, several of the less than genius admin's would start out with open, in program forums, and as payments started slowing, or naysayers became loud enough, they'd close the forum to all but registered members. Of course, it was a sure sign the admin was days away from folding up the tent. This trend led to the rise of the "ratings forums" that started as a place to rate programs independent of the actual program's domain. Very quickly Talk Gold and others evolved to selling payed advertising to the very admins they were trying to ostensibly protect the public from. The ratings forums very quickly became virtual cesspools of shilling and censorship and universally the better a reputation among the faithful on these boards the more corrupt you could count on them to be. There are some true legends of scum among the big HYIP forum stars, from Ken Russo, Ms V, Team Aaron and Shaara and Matt Gagnon...I could list a hundred of them, all "reputable" ponzi pimps, not one of whom ever pitched a legitimate investment.
