I do wonder what life was like "BAW" before adultwork. It was only through aw that I was confident enough to try punting for the first time. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to find good wg's before or not to get ripped off.
I can certainly imagine many people being like me and having their first punting experiences facilitated by AW. It can't be healthy for one site to have such a monopoly of an industry though.
AW is full of lying, cheating, scamming cunts
I agree they do have a monopoly, if another site eventually became a serious competitor to AW it should force them to up their game. If they don't improve, the competitor will gain & AW will become redundant like Prossienet.
