Subby, I'm going to fling mature manure in your general direction.

my penis hurts, but ramen noodles are almost done, so yay! but if my penis still hurts after, maruchan is getting a one-star review and a serious verbal thrashing on amazon.

AlwaysRightBoy: mature manure


Actually that sounds like a good name for an old farts garage band

Fark always has new links coming up. Their admins are on a completely regular schedule and they are constantly checking the queue for candidates to greenlight. Although they're not perfect, I'd say that 99% of the headlines accurately describe the story. It makes it so much easier to know which stories to click on.

I think it's nice that they don't even really charge for this service. I mean, they offer a few services for payment, but that's not the main focus of the site.

I have visited Fark.com on many occasions, and unless they start doing something silly like banning vibrant controversial posters I will continue to visit this site until I get a life.

Ah, the mature manure maneuver. Clever.

Sober? What's sober, precious?

And that Politics tab is so reasonable and no one ever makes a point without fully demonstrating its logical process.
 
2014-01-25 12:33:28 AM
Actually, the headline isn't THAT far from the truth, is it?
 
2014-01-25 12:34:19 AM
Kinda weird that "because I'm an asshole" wasn't one of the choices, though I doubt they'd self-identify.

Nice try kissing up, but we are still going to refer to you as the Daily Fail.

/in fairness though, this is one of the more intelligent comment sections on the web
//which is quite telling about most websites' comment sections...

I like the hotel/restaurant reviews left by people who were such assholes they were turned away at the door.

Compared to much of the rest of the internet, that's not too inaccurate. Even the dumbest comments on Fark are mostly complete sentences with spelled out words and punctuation.
 
2014-01-25 12:40:00 AM
I'm not sure if I can put up with subby's liable.
 
2014-01-25 12:41:15 AM
Yet, according to research that is sure to panic business owners across the world, a fifth of Americans have left online reviews for items they've never bought or even used

And 110% of them post here on Fark, for reasons that are surely uncorrelated with causation.
 
2014-01-25 12:42:00 AM
The Daily Mail telling people to not trust something online?

just...wow...

I don't always read Fark , combut when I do, I often am disappointed my headline wasn't greened even though it included proper punctuation

Your penis isn't big enough to hurt anyone.

I'd expect that sort of talk from a commie librul sucker!

I hereby endorse this product and/or service.

I love Fark, but Goddamn, the non-stop stories of human stupidity have made me a cynical bastard.

It's the european version of a web address, silly. If you think that's bad, it's Fark;com in Austrailia.
 
2014-01-25 01:10:58 AM
Wow, 80% of online reviews are based on actual direct experience? That's surprising.

I wholly endorse dailymail.com in that it is fully and completely full of current documentation of current public events and it has lots of naked ladies that I pin up in my outhouse to keep me warm on those long winter nights of pooping

Where did this schlub come from.  He must be a troll.

Have you ever noticed how your boogers taste different after you've been running around outside a lot when it's real cold?

Well, at least that's how I interpret the funny face my dog gives me after he licks my nose.

Anyone notice that 131% of people answered the poll?

They don't know us very well, do they?

It's not that hard to separate the wheat from the chaff, but you have to pay attention to what's being said, how it's being said, and why. Serial reviewers will use the same language in their different reviews, or their reviews will be overly simplistic(This is the best app ever! Definitely worth it!). Complaining about the resolution on a TV vs. explaining your own experiences, how bad it really is, and whether you can live with it and think it's worth dealing with it for the money involved are two different things for example. You can also compare reviews from multiple sites and the compare those against trade publications or websites that are devoted to the product.

Food reviews are similar, look for repeated phrases, or someone who doesn't expand on WHY it's the best burger that has ever burged. Bad service or a boring menu? When was the review written? 2 years ago, and they could have a new head chef and a whole new menu.

Reviews just take some work, More than they should, but nothing like you would do for a PhD project. I think these people are assholes though, fake reviews are inconsiderate and rude, and the reasons here just make peoplelook like even bigger assholes. As much as I get a kick out of the fake Amazon reviews sometimes, I'd rather that type of thing not exist at all if it meant that we'd get more honest reviews. It really bothers me that Amazon continues to allow this. As a result, Amazon is the absolute last place I look for a review, coming in behind the homeless guy on the corner as a trusted source of info on a considered purchase. At least the Google Play store won't let you leave a review if you haven't downloaded the app yet.

At least the Amazon ones have the humor thing going for them, some of the other reviews have no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and can hurt innocent businesses (and the consumer) or let offenders get more business than they deserve.

And leaving a bad review for a product just because you don't like the concept of the product is unbelievably immature as well, but it IS the Internet after all.
 
2014-01-25 02:04:54 AM
Thank you, subby. It's nice to be appreciated.

What if the REAL culprit is people intentionally pick false answers to skew survey results.
