Hi All,

One popular web seller has reviews on their site. I recently bought a
motherboard from this company - I must say that I was influenced by the
100% positive ratings over 25 reviews for this motherboard. This
motherboard turned out to have some issues. I submitted a critical review
on this motherboard - but - the review never showed up. Examination of the
website turned up the following bullshit:

"The customer opinion reviews are used at the discretion of xxx.com as a
marketing device for positive and constructive ways to share the benefit of
the product. It is not used as a source for negative commentary as we
cannot endorse the validity of any negative comment. Therefore, the xxx.com
site is moderated to remove any unproven biased negative comments."

Caveat emptor!

I'm curious. Who is the seller, what is the mobo, and what are the issues?
