Re: Compensated disparagement


By definition there is nothing that would rise to that name for here.  I did do some research on it a little while ago and there have been studies that say it is rampant. Further the sites that depend upon objectivity of the reviews (Angies List, Trip Advisor, etc.) have started to go to some trouble to try to curb it, which they wouldn't bother with if they didn't think it was a problem.  But, it is very hard to curtail.  I can tell you that if I didn't feel some moral compunctions If were in marketing at any of these camera companies and I thought I could get away with it I'd have a crew/consultant that covered this site along with, of course the major sales sites.  It is dirt cheap and very powerful.  So, on that basis, I assume it is here and I guess there is a lot of it.
