YES, I am personally a member of the Wealthy Affiliate community. It started back in 2005 with two guys named Kyle and Carson(Co-Founders). Kyle is the marketing Chief while Carson is the Design Chief. You will find them interacting with other members of the community. Together, they have over 20 years of experience combined. I must agree they are at the top of the game. It is hard to get DIRECT support from Owners.
3. We will not recommend anyone to work in Adstimer because it is following the same old business model of Paidverts which has been already proven completely unsustainable by Paidverts itself. In the past Paidverts did 3 times BAP swap to clear debt created by this business model and many members lose money on that time. At last Paidverts realize offering 150% can't be sustainable, so they decrease ROI rate and now Paidverts is only paying back 120% ROI. However, Adstimer is still paying 158% ROI and even they are not back up with anything like Paidverts is back up with their sister site MyTrafficValue. So, we are sure that sooner or later, Adstimer will either do something like BAP swap or just stop paying or even shutdown their site, and in all case members will lose. So, we will not recommend anyone to work in Adstimer.

And if it’s not what I am looking for I think you can direct me in the direction I need to go.

Yes, service must be available to everyone. However, WA didn't ban those countries from starting. But when it faced lots of hacking and spamming problems especially from those countries, then WA unwillingly banned those countries to secure its website. After all, every business owners will think about the security of their business. But, WA still trying to find other ways to make its website secure so that it can unban those countries once again.
It's hard to identify the drawbacks of Wealthy Affiliate because almost everything is best within Wealthy Affiliate. Meanwhile, from our own experience as well as going through other Wealthy Affiliate Reviews, we find some drawbacks within Wealthy Affiliate- community help. However, support from the community has lots of positive things than negative because almost all time you get a reply from community members when you seek help and most of the time you get authentic help.
