It should be the law that any site carrying review should declare whether all reviews are posted or if there are any links or affiliations between the companies involved. Otherwise such reviews are nothing more than adverts.
sssimon – would it have been better if i had prefixed it with some hilarious “1st world problem” tagline? I shall be sure to check your posts to see if i can help you back in such a constructive manner.
I agree Bratty, and im saddened to see that this is already considered normal practice by some people. Amazon seem to manage to publish negative reviews, that CRC don’t seem to publish a constructive review which doesn’t happen to be 5 stars is a bit surprising to me.
Are you guys sure they’re unpublished, not just a page or two back? The standard list mode is descending by rating (say what you will about that, but it’s about a trillion times better than selectively publishing them).
call me cynical but I can’t see the problem, they have no obligation to post your review. Retailers don’t have reviews there to help consumers they are there to boost google rankings.
If you have “clear constructive descriptions of how the item clearly could be better” you’d probably be better aiming them at the manufacturer (although in the case of crc this is often one and the same)
The topic ‘CRC reviews being selectively published?’ is closed to new replies.
