I've come across them as well, but mostly on another forum. Someone opened a topic requesting info on a player and I asked him if he was a scout or something and he refused to answer me, so I refused to answer him. I think we should release a new list of talents, I'll start:You guys do know that player agents - and player-agent wannabes - sometimes hang out XT looking for tips on promising new players, right? I've actually received a couple of PMs from folks I'd never talked to before, asking for lists of "upcoming Brasilian talents" (questions that have gone unanswered, because I saw no need to do the headhunters' jobs for them).
So, y'know, it's nice to keep friends from abroad well-informed, but some of these requests aren't just innocent expressions of curiosity. I'm not saying that's the case with this specific thread, but it's something we should keep in mind.
