Just wondering. I posted a few yesterday, all downbeat, which aren't up yet- the only ones which are give 5 *s and glowing reports.

Do you think they get the marketing team to post?

I have had less than glowing reviews put up on their site but I have also had those published which are more flattering too.

They take a few days to appear.

They are but they cull a lot of the bad ones

From my experience they publish all reviews, good and bad. Any review I've ever written has eventually been put on the web site, but agree with previous poster, they do take a few days to appear.

I think they must be, as I only ever seem to see bad ones which have put me off buying whatever I was thinking about.

I've written bad reviews which haven't been published

All mine have always been published, good and bad.

All of mine have been published, but it does take a couple of days

I think they must be genuine because they are always so universally bad! I can't believe they don't edit them a bit more actually.

Editing reviews seems fradulent to me. The very presence of a review function implies that it is impartial. Culling bad reviews is deceptive and wrong.
