The giveaway manager is said to be using an alias to hide his (pseudo)identity, known for previous hacking attempts. The giveaway manager himself states this is definitely not true.
I've posted the message that was broadcasted on my blog. You can read it - and some comments - here: New JV Giveaways.
Personally, I try to stay objective. As long as it isn't 100% sure this guy is a scammer, I feel I should give him the benefit of the doubt: I promote the giveaway like I usually do, but I encourage people to read the blog post before they sign up, and decide for themselves whether to join or not.
I'm really curious to know how others deal with this situation, and what the impact of this accusation is, especially since the accuser is more known than the accused.
So, let me know how you handle this: do you promote the event or not and what are your reasons for your decision?
