Require a geographic address and phone number in outsourcer profile to enable verification of ther legitimacy
Obscure profiles claiming to provide services in all the world's languages and in all imaginable specialties, but "forget" to provide their location and contact data must raise a red flag in anyone. Requiring the inclusion of this data will protect less experienced service providers and contribute to the general transparency in our profession.

This is the suggester. I did not realize that I would be "anonymous" without registration, and frankly it would have been hypocritical to ask for transparency and fail to disclose one's identity. So I have registered, but the posting did not link to my profile. But now it's not anonymous anymore...
