David and the Mods, et al
Per your rules negative by-name comments are not allowed. I understand why--to keep the tone here civil--and I concur, but one of the reasons people come to AOD is to gather information about service providers, which is sometimes negative.
What I propose is a critique form much like the forum poll, which would allow members to rate a guide, air taxi, gunsmith etc etc using a standardized format.
If I may, I suggest the following as a start:
AOD Member’s Critique
AOD members can use this form to rate an outdoors related business or service provider
