I registered over there today and looked through the listings. Here are a couple of things that I think would be good ideas:

Add captcha to try and stop all the scripted autobids from Bulgaria. How in the world can anyone posting a project take any of the bids seriously with that going on? Much less give any kind of server access to actually fix problems. Yeah, I’m sure I’d let one of those guys in…

Get rid of the captcha monkeys. Good lord. No wonder spam is so bad. They even have an executable to download on one of them. Seriously?

Get rid of the “Buy 5000 fans on Facebook” contracts.

Ban the Craigslist spammers.

The site is a good idea, but good lord, it’s almost like wading through crack or keygen sites, kind of cesspoolish.
