Secondary reaction: Would this be lawsuit bait?
Hmmmmm. (Brer Fox and Brer Bear consider more.....)
I think anyone considering creating such a resource had best consult an

Here's a thought: Is there anything preventing a contractor or a
prospective employee from requesting references from a company? Is anyone
currently doing just that?
