Why as less people annoyed\outraged at proposals that appear to scam Dash?

I'd like an audit done on proposals that have completed in full, ones over due and ones clearly scamming the dash community.

Charle Shrem has again missed another deadline with no updates.

I'm not sure what you mean by people not being annoyed?

DashForceNews.com has posted 28 editorials/reviews/updates on past proposals in the last 3-4 months
https://www.dashforcenews.com/category/news/proposal-updates/

DashTreasury.org has a page dedicated to rating both past and present proposals:
https://www.dashtreasury.org/approved-proposals.html

They sometimes publish articles about specific proposals, eg.
https://www.dashtreasury.org/article-delinquentsummary.html
https://www.dashtreasury.org/offenders.html

Some of the most unpopular/controversial proposals (right now especially Charlie's debit card, the one you mentioned) often have people chatting about them in Reddit, here on the forum, and on Dash Nation Slack.

Is there room for a more formal audit -- sure, I guess. I would welcome a thorough analysis of this, but it seems to me we are already heading in the right direction when it comes to being more informed about proposals, and starting to do a little better with ensuring better quality on the proposals themselves. This is a natural part of the growing process of the Dash DAO.

Doesn't this tie into the idea of a reputation economy? I think the darknet (there are others/purse.io as well) is out in front on this again. When you have completed your obligations, it's customary for the buyer to upvote you, boosting your reputation. When you screw around, the opposite happens.

Wouldn't this be simpler than a formal, snapshot audit? Possibly this reputation facility already exists somewhere for DASH proposals and I missed it.

The Shrem thing is particularly baffling. My hunch is, he has absconded. I'm left to wonder what his motivations are.

My suspicions are that Payza got threatened by the banking cartel to stay away from the US market. Just like Shakepay and some other cards suddenly dropped US customers like a red hot piece of steel:

But in the long run, digital identity and an immutable rating system will take care of these problems for the most part.

Another reason for the Dash community not being totally freaked out by deals that don't turn out perfect is that, our life doesn't hang on one deal. Lots of startups are so strapped for cash that a single failed contract/deal could easily put them out of business. Because our funding model is so superior to any other functional model out there, a failed deal is an annoyance like a mosquito bite. Annoying, but not fatal.
