RefMaker.com: More worthless than the Ruble!!!!

Pros: Free Advertising...
Cons: That takes alot of work and neglects many programs...
On paper, RefMaker.com sounded like a perfect idea...but then again, on paper, so does Communism. There is much that I have learned from the use of RefMaker and perhaps the best piece of advice I can offer is to stay away. It isn't worth your time....

Do you wish to promote others?

Pros: No one
Cons: Who has counted them?
Why bother using someone elses site. Not only that, refmaker has to be one of the most boring and unistering sites I have seen. It doesnt give you the incentive to sign up. Build your own site at somewhere like homestead or geocities, its a piece of...
