Not an easy question to answer. First of all, we don't know the motives of the people operating these portal sites nor do we always know a 100% of their affiliations. If they are affiliated with certain sites, quite naturally they are going to promote those sites as the best online and the safest against cheating and information stealing. I guess the only way to minimize the possibility of taking advice from dishonest poker and casino portals is to stick with the ones that have been online the longest. So before you decide to click onto an online poker room or casino from the pages of informational portals, do a checkup on the portal itself. You can do this simply by searching these sites on any of the "Whois" web pages. You will get all the domain information, physical location, etc. Also check and read through the poker forums on this subject. Then, of course, there are the poker and casino anti-cheat safety ratings on this website.
Does this mean the biggest and oldest the better? Yes, it does, but it does not mean that you are 100% safe taking their advice. It only means that you are most probably receiving the best advice out there as far as honesty is concerned.
