  1. This is SO true. Glad it is being pointed out.
    I have a situation where I once left a review on Amazon that was only a 1-star. The next day I reeived a comment (random pe1on) saying I only left negative reviews (which I looked and only a small fraction were less than 4-5 sta1). Magically the next day there were 4 new positive reviews for this product- most being from the city the company is headquartered in.
