Let me remind aspiring writers that the 20 Thumbs down Agents list featuring Barbara Bauer (there--THAT'S for google) is only the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of others!
However, here are links to places where you can check things out first.
The good people here have done their research and you can trust they were thorough.
Just starting out with writing? Don't know where to look for an honest agent? Here ya go:

Need to know how honest agents work and what they're looking for?http://misssnark.blogspot.com/http://accrispin.blogspot.com/http://pubrants.blogspot.com/
Later--when Absolute Write and its invaluable Forum is back up go check out:www.absolutewrite.com
As of now the chat room and front page are up. This is an awesome site for new and experienced writers to find out what's going on, get help, post your work for critique, the works. Go there, bookmark, absorb.
Another way to find an honest agent is to write a writer. If your work is similar to that of another writer in the same genre you may be able to contact them through their website.
Just say you're an aspiring writer looking for an agent and ask if they would mind sharing the name of theirs. Most don't.
Oh--don't tell them your story plot, keep it short and polite, then vanish off their radar. They will be grateful for that.
Yes, link all you want! Spread the word!
