Thread: What a difference a decade makes - Reviews

  1. Cop What a difference a decade makes - Reviews

    Been away from the Irish escort scene for about 10 years and am amazed at what I see on my return.

    What is this utter nonsense about escorts not allowing reviews? It's madness! No other service provider has the ability to prevent reviews, and I sure as hell wouldn't go near a restaurant that tried to stop them - never mind an escort. EI should not even provide a facility for an escort to request no reviews. The decision to review or not is the client's alone, not the escort's. It's clear exactly how much this site serves the interests of clients (who provide them with no direct revenue) as against the interests of escorts from whom it directly derives its income. It entirely misses the point that the entire industry is ultimately financed by the clients, and that the no review option damages the industry as a whole, whilst a completely open, unavoidable review platform would only negatively impact a few individual escorts but enhance the industry as a whole.

    Also, I can accept that reviews are moderated, but editing is just not on. If a submitted review contains offensive language or anything else that's unacceptable, it should simply be returned to the reviewer with the offending sections highlighted. There is now a review on the site under my name with a wording in it that I did not use - it's not terribly different - I just preferred my own words - after all, the review is supposed to reflect my opinion of the service - not EI's sanitised escort oriented version of it.

    Worse still was the bit they removed totally. I mentioned something that didn't bother me at all, but that I felt might bother some clients and it was fair that they should be aware of it. EI just deleted it - again presumably due to a pro escort biased censorship. It was quite simply the fact that a few doors down the road was a coffee shop, open till 10pm every night, where the Gardai seemed to congregate on their coffee breaks.

    I do agree with the first paragraph. It seems like a golden rule amongst clients that thou shall not visit an escort who doesn't allow reviews. We filter those out entirely when looking. Which begs the question, what's the point of even having that as an option? I can't think of any answer that can't be mitigated by common sense, unless it's a money thing for the site.

    You are right - you have been away too long.

    You have arrived back in time to greet the new law whereby all punters can become criminals for paying for sex- it's unlikely that they will write any reviews then!!!!

    It's an escorts perogative to allow reviews or not.
    Just like it is a clients perogative to visit an escort or not.
    Tick the box and escorts who have opted out will not appear.
    You can then choose one that allows reviews.
    It really is that simple. I don't understand why clients are always bringing this up as though the escort, just because she is advertising has no say in her own business.
    Some people have to have the last word,
    but they don't actually want you to stop talking,
    as they like the sound of their own voices too much.

    I think because among clients it seems to be an almost universal concept that unallowed reviews = fake profile.

    Then they should just not visit them, they still get enough business from guys who just look at pretty pictures and book. It is their own fault if they get stung for taking the chance and not doing their home work.

    Guys are warned on here time and time again to only choose well reviewed girls with verified pics.

    I think that's kind of the whole point here.

    No, the point the op is making is that girls should not be allowed to advertise unless they allow reviews. This is the point I'm addressing Xx

    This story runs and runs and runs
    You get sick telling this all the time to punters
    If they are foolish enough to book 50 euro girl with opt out reviews and unverified pics ,,, well good luck to them
