Re: Forbes, I am curious to know if it's possible for a poser (i.e., an unauthorized person/competitor misrepresenting a website/url) to post messages in Google Webmaster Central, to get Google's attention on a competitor's site? Are there safeguards (i.e., you must post from within your GWT account)? Seems to be a lot of outing and tattletaling lately, I'd hate to think that Google would respond/react to a fake post. Given the fact that the Forbes poster specifically referred to a message received in their GWT account, I imagine it was legit, but I just hope there are safeguards to prevent false claims.
