Kaiser442: Does nobody understand anymore that the word is "wary"? Weary means tired. Wary means cautious.
treesloth: ZeroCorpse: I won't go into the personal details, but I'm among the top reviewers on Amazon...Are you getting a kick out of the replies?Seriously, though, I think a mirror accusation might be made of you, although I strongly doubt it's deserved. The so-called "pro" reviewer is poo-pooing the unpaid reviewer to put himself on a pedestal. The unpaid reviewer, on the other hand, invokes classism to give his reviews the appearance of down-to-earth, nothing-to-gain honesty. I point this out because your points read well without having to resort to that sort of measure.That said, 5/5, would read again.
nickerj1: The website with the most fake/plant reviews has to be, without any doubt, ApartmentRatings.com.If you've ever looked up potential apartments on there, you know exactly what I'm talking about. They stick out like sore thumbs because they're overly generic: "This place is great, no problem with noise, management is great". They will, without a doubt, indicate how awesome and courteous and polite the management people are. When, in fact, 90% of legit reviews say nothing about management because no one cares about management if everything is fine, only when something goes wrong. Examples: "Maintenance was slow", "Management jacked up the rent", etc. You can also tell it's legit if they talk about specific incidents. Almost every legit review does: "When I get home late, I can't find parking", or "I noticed a roach once in the kitchen", or "The neighbor's dog barked a lot" ,etc.
