    Default False Reviews

    this is a question for admin: if a guy only has one review posted and it is a bad review and the english is crap, do you not suspect that the review is false. The one i found below seems utter bullshit to me, especially as two reviewers who have other reviews written gave very positive field reports on the Lady.

    Surely there is an easy way to weed out the false reviews, or is it time to put all the single reviews in a seperate section....

    im getting the impression that some escorts are writing bad reviews of others in an attempt to destroy their buisness and gain the upperhand.

    Fake reviews, good or bad, is a growing problem. At the moment, most are easy to spot because they are written by people with limited English and limited intelligence. However they are already learning to copy older genuine reviews. There are a number of things that can be done:
    1) An effort should be made to have more clients become members and write reviews.
    2) Members shoud only be allowed to make reviews a month after joining
    3) There should be a link from the review to the members page and not just other reviews.
    4) Single reviews should automatically delete if the reviewer does not post any more messages or reviews within a month.
    5) Many of the fake good rewiews are adverting to get on the latest rewiews page which we all read. maybe we shoud do away with this.
    6) reviewers could be rated on length of membership, posts, rewiews etc. A review could be removed if a certain number of established memers vote for it to be removed
    7) Bad reviews have a huge financial implication for escorts so I think that it is only fair for them to be able to add their comments to a review.
    We can improve the system.

    The IP this reviewer posted from does not match up with the IP of any escorts or other users of our systems, so we can't say we have any proof he is not genuine.

    Default false reviews

    I fully understand what you are saying Patricia. Take That particular girl as an example..i was looking at her profile and was considering a visit..but a little doubt is in my mind now because of the negative review. I think what diver is saying is right. the time has come to change the whole review system..take e bay for example, everybody gets a seller rating while still remaining anonomous, maybe you could look at something like that. Anyone who has been on here less than a month always smells fishy to me in the review section and especially if they do not post. can we get a system where there are stars on something given to each member on here depending on their amount of posts or reviews.. this would be a simple way of flushing out the bullshitters and would make it easier for someone who is genuine and a regular poster and reviewer...I for one will always look at the overall picture and will take on board what regular reviewers ahve to say first and foremost....
