BBB trojan

In the US at least, perhaps elsewhere, it is a non profit organization of businesses that promote each other and also track businesses with poor histories, and after confirming bad business practices, distributes the information to anyone in the public that asks for it. I typically check with the BBB website for information on a company before buying something over the internet, for example.

Out of idle curiosity, what is the "Better Business Bureau"? Some
company flogging something, I guess...
