I realize you don't want to support it, but if the search engines don't pick up the site's name, more people like me may blunder into a group buy.
For example, I live rather remotely, and did not even know what a "group buy" was before I saw that unmentionable site's sale. I read the site's explanation of the sale, and it seemed legit. Made sense. Mshenay said make sure you get a warranty, and three different employees at that site were eager to back up their products by matching the manufacturer's warranty. Again seemed legit.
Didn't even think they could be counterfeit. If I would have read people's personal encounters with that site in these forums, I would have thought differently. They are not mentioned on the Audio Technica's list of unauthorized vendors (sites Audio Technica specifically advises that you do not purchase from) so I went ahead with the buy. Now only hoping it was not a mistake.
Still, if you were serious about curbing this kind of thing, why not a buyer's beware section where people can gripe about specific transactions from specific sites?
