When the “key features” Section is directly from the marketing material then I instantly stop reading thinking this is as far from a “review” as it gets.

Now, I usually force myself onwards knowing you guys draw your own conclusions. But I really wish you would write the section yourself and exclude all the Marketing BS. Or put in a disclaimer explaining where this particular text comes from.Quote

Most of the specs pages are straight from blurb.... Total waste of time to write it all out when really youre only here for the results and conclusion anywaysQuote

^ I get that. But when I read the first section above, it’s your words in “your voice”. Then I come to the marketing stuff and it’s STILL in your voice, because it’s written in the same way, same formatting with no “warning”.

Oh well, perhaps it’s just me - but in my mind you are the one throwing around “market leader”, “world class”, “engineering marvel” all the time ;-)Quote

Where in the first page did he say: market leader, world class, or engineering marvel?

He said, "On paper it's got the credentials to take the top spot. Let's see shall we?"

How is this different from any other high end review? What do you want him to say?

"I guess we will take a look and hopefully it sucks"

That better for you?

How would you do his intro different and how would you do his first page different? Because you're criticizing for no reason and not giving examples of what YOU think it should be for a more "neutral" presentation.Quote

I'm sorry I'm not able to be more clear than my last post. I'm really sure how to put it, but your are not understanding what I'm trying to say :-(


I can try again by saying it like this "you should not include other peoples text inside your own, without clearly marking it as such".


Make it clear what is your own text, and what is copy-pasta from somewhere else.


Better? If not, I give up.Quote
