    I guess he means some sort of 'black sheep' list where he can rant about a service/advertiser he wasn't pleased with?

    Probably because there are people who may use it as a chance to try to defame their competitors.

    Maybe, but this can also happen if the business is listed here anyway.

    Yes but when someone is posted on the shitlist, the post is reviewed by a moderator and appropriate action is taken. If people were able to post a "shit list" for people that weren't on the forum it could easily be used to attack a competitor who can't stand up for themselves.

    Because the forum is under the care and watch of the moderators, who decide whether it was a fair post on the shitlist, or just an attempt to harm the competition instead of facing it. If you start posting services from outside although many can be legit frauds and unprofessional scumbags, there's many who will suffer simply because they aren't operating on bhw and a very huge segment of their potential market can get repulsed from using their services.
