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!
