Stop Giving Bad Reviews!

Grr! This is why I end up reading reviews for hours because all the negitive ones end up being about the fact that they didn't recieve the product or the store/online shop made a mistake and it had nothing to do with the product itself. 


If the product sucks leave a bad review. If the store sucks leave it out of your judgement of the product. If you didn't get the product no need to leave a review of it especially a negative one. If you got the product but the store messed up don't base your review of it on the product maybe mention it in your thoughts about it that the store messed up but no reason to give a product a 1 star because the store messed up! 

I have no idea why this bugs me so bad well other than the fact that I'm looking for gives for my son and kept ruling things out because they had horrible reviews. DH told me to find out why they did and for the last month I've found nothing but negative reviews refering to the site/store rather than the product itself! Annoying! Who's got time to look at reviews for absolutely everything to rule out dumb reasons people hated it?


Frustrated.

I like reading both. If a store is bad I certainly don't want to shop there.

I also hate the ones who review I just saw this twice, that say "I just got this product can't wait to open it" 3 stars. Ummm You haven't even seen the product why are you reviewing it?!

Seriously! I can see leaving a review of the product and then saying "by the way I ordered this and it didn't show up the first time" or "my order was canceled but product was...." but don't bash the product over the store's problems. I can't imagine how many things I haven't bought because I just went by star value! Lesson learned read the stupid reviews to sort out good products over bad reviewers!

And I don't have a problem with a store review being in a products review as long as the star's review reflects only on the product itself and not the store. Thats all. =) Add in how the store was! Thats fine.

I hate it when people give negative reviews because they're stupid and can't figure out how to use whatever it is. There's 200 positive reviews then one moron screaming DO NOT BUY!!! no idiot.

LOL I've seen a few of those. "It took me 2 hours to put it together! It didn't work and I lost my patience" While others on the same product say "A little patience and paying attention to the instructions goes a long way took me 30 minutes to put together" lol. Some people just seem to be overly crabby when they write reviews!

I was looking at the easy bake oven and people were bitching because the muffin pan is hard to put in because it tips. Another reviewer said "if you watch the video on how to use it it shows that you need to put muffin tin in side the other pan and will fix the problem. LOL Apparently lots of good tips in reviews too!

You know, I've never really thought of that.

I don't generally leave reviews. I just don't.
