    WUFOO RACISM!

    I tried to sign up but here is what I got:

    "We're sorry, but Wufoo is not currently accepting free account signups from your country or region [OR FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU]."

    What's wrong with our country? Are we all bad people? Racism! Racism, I tell you!

    More like discrimination really, unless they specifically mentioned your race.

    BTW, this thread belongs to the lounge, not to the shit list.

    Vlaid rant perhaps but my question is; "What is your country and who are people like you?"

    Stop behaving like this, its normal! They don't requires specific country or region for signup. There are several companies do like this even we are doing GEO Targeting!!

    Wait a min... no it ain't.

    Restricting IP addresses from regions that have higher then average rates of fraud/abuse or lower rates of conversion does not equate to racism.

    Playing the 'race card' is totally wrong in this instance. I feel like singing -

    If I had a (ban) hammer, I'd hammer such posts in the morning, I'd hammer them in the evening, all over this forum....

    LOL!

    They assume that most spammers/scammers are from poor countries. How wrong is that? :)

    I don't think they assume it they analyze verifiable business data.
    It's you that are making the assumptions.
