If I had the money, I would mail live, angry bobcats to all the people who leave these reviews on Amazon.

I'm skeptical there is any mail carrier who would allow you to mail live animals, much less angry bobcats.

UPS accepts some live animals, but they're confined to stuff like amphibians, reptiles and insects, etc.

I'd like to see you succeed OP, so maybe you could somehow dupe the UPS into believing the bobcats are fish or crustaceans?

I wonder if it would be possible to mail someone a box of live cockroaches in such a way that they get released immediately upon opening the box.

I also hate these reviews because their "unbiased" opinion is based on them opening the box, using the item for a minute, then making their review. You can't tell how sturdy or useful something is until you use it for a time.

I made this post at a discount in exchange for more GBS shitposts

That's why you browse through the negative ones to see if the product is really bad or if it's just some chunkety nerd on a man-period raging.

I think the three-star reviews are the only useful ones. The one-star reviews always complain about bad shipping or other stuff has nothing to do with the actual product being reviewed.

nah one star reviews can be useful, you just need to browse through them to get a quick gut feeling for how many relate to legitimate issues vs. how many relate to shipping/the reviewer being an idiot/phases of the moon/etc.

It's true and people are becoming more aware, see this new video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdLI62JKpCk

I have to applaud steam for the new review filter and they pretty much hit the nail on the head with their explanation

quote:

To do so, Valve has introduced several filters to the reviews tab; one limits customer write-ups to just a userís native language, while the other lets them choose between game reviews by Steam purchasers, key activations or both. The latter option, which is set to reviews by Steam store customers by default, is what Valve honed in on in its post, explaining that the update comes as a preventive measure against illegitimate reviews.

"The review score has also become a point of fixation for many developers, to the point where some developers are willing to employ deceptive tactics to generate a more positive review score," Valve wrote in the post.

Amazon review poaching by giving desperate people free poo poo is pretty drat deceptive if you ask me.

These aren't even paid, you sign up for product offers and review free poo poo the merchant sends you with "honest" reviews(hint: if you don't play ball and leave crappy reviews you won't be getting anymore free poo poo)
