    Bhanu and his gang at Rank Math SEO are some of the biggest fraudsters in the greater WordPress community... first I exposed their company MyThemeShop for illegally locking out customers from their own WordPress theme settings if users failed to pay them for renewals (illegal in both India and the US, also violates the GPL license they are required to abide by) I also exposed their team for paying for hundreds of fake 5-star reviews on Wordpress.org and Product Hunt, for some reason WordPress never banned them after this despite banning other agencies for far lesser things After that Bhanu and Rank Math began illegally stealing code from Yoast SEO plugin and using it in their own shitty plugin... again, they were not banned, is Matt Mullenweg trying to get more favor in the Indian market or what?? It gets worse... Bhanu and his team called and left me death threats on my business voicemail after this shit How the fuck are these guys still not banned from WordPress.org??? I forgot about this until a few days ago when I noticed Bhanu had secretly "down voted" my free open source script SlickStack on Product Hunt... PH recently disabled the anonymous function, so some of these fraudsters got further exposed! Read More

    Gijo upvoted SlickStack on Product Hunt, followed me, loved my free script... I joined his Facebook group in return called WP Speed Matters and out of the blue, he found out that I criticized Rank Math SEO for embedding spyware (and sending me death threats) and he banned me from his group (mmm okay?) and told everyone in the group I was "racist" after hearing this from Johnny Nguyen (WPJohnny) who keeps repeating this because he is jealous of my Nginx skills or something... You can't make this shit up. The Rank Math SEO / Litespeed cult is real, and scary. We are at the point where sensitive egos and RACISSSMMM has invaded open source software! god help us Read More

    Alex is a full-time scoundrel on the web. He not only leaves fake reviews of my company around the web, but also submitted illegal DMCA complaints to Google in a failed attempt to get my blog removed from search results. He has plotted with other fraudsters like Brian Jackson to run black hat link exchanges, among other unethical stunts. It's no wonder he teamed up with scammers like Rank Math SEO, who left me death threats after I exposed thousands of fraudulent reviews their SEO team had acquired on wordpress.org and Product Hunt... https://www.littlebizzy.com/directory/alex-panagis A whiny little punk who spams and lies and cheats... a warning to all.

    Dragos publishes dozens of blogs promoting various web hosting companies and WordPress services without any Disclosure or mentions that he is being paid by these companies to promote them. Like many other affiliate shills, he only seems to recommend products that pay him. Read More

    *The vast majority of people listed in this database are just “normal” business people, therefore no negative connotation is insinuated nor should misdeeds be assumed based on existing in our business directory. Our underlying goal is exposing misdeeds and fraud, but to accomplish this we often must first identity “honest” business people. This is because of things like similar names, impersonation, copyright infringement, and other reasons. Thus, the vast majority of people in our database are not being accused of anything shady. For this reason, profiles are now “noindexed” by default until comments exist on any given profile, since many of them are unnotable.
