this person but I won't.   I was looking at member reviews.  A member "reveiwed" a book by stating its condition.  Bad enough as it is irrelevant with FIFO, but the condition is upostable!!  She freely admits the book has water damage!  Grrrrr................

How old is the review?  I've seen that before but the reviews are a few years old, when actual reviews weren't done.

give it the thumbs down. Put the ISBN in the thread and then others can give it the thumbs down. I don't know how many it takes but I believe if a review gets enough thumbs down it moves it off the page.

Ugh, I just saw someone's review of a book that was ridiculous. Then I went and checked all of her reviews and they were all the same (about 17 of them, IIRC). They were something like "I haven't read this yet, but would love it if you could send it to me next" or something like that. So annoying. I wish I'd taken note of which book it was on now.

Whenever I am trying to avoid doing real work I will look at reviews.  I always use the thumbs up or down.  I just couldn't believe this woman admitted her book was unpostable.  It was a new review too.

Give us the ISBN and we'll all give it the thumbs down

I can't find it now.  All I remeber is that it was a Danielle Steel book.

I like to read the recent reviews, and I've sent that PM several times to members who posted an innapropriate review.    Of course, I do TRY to be polite about it.

It's annoying when people do that, like on the dvd site someone wrote a review that was "I haven't watched this movie yet", SERIOUSLY? But I wouldn't pm someone about that, just let everyone laugh at them!
