Imagine my surprise when I went to check my email and received a message from none other than Scott Wainer, the "CEO" of Reseller Ratings! I was like, "Huh? Wuh?" Before I go any further, allow me to post the email: I rated one of the sites several times, but each time was for a legitimate purchase AND I was fully satisfied. And no, I did not reply, yet. Guess what, Scott changed my POSITIVE ratings to negative, thus reducing the companie's rating!! Isn't that illegal? I removed the companies Scot was accusing of fraudulent postings because I think this guy is full of crap. I've always considered "user supported" sites like reseller ratings one of those "good on paper, bad in practice" kinda deals, because they are poorly regulated and most of the posts are either the business saying good stuff about themselves, or competitors posting negative comments to make the other guy look bad. Sure there is some legitimate stuff, but no where near enough to make an educated purchase decision. In the end, it's the consumer who is left with misinformation. Obviously, if the CEO of a company opens his messages with "I don't know what kind of bullshit...", that tells you all you need to know about what you are dealing with. What I find humourous is this guy's warped perception of legality, threatening legal action against websites that HE added to his own website!!! How funny is that!? How about I add BizRate to my website, then accuse them of posting fradulent comments on my site, and then threaten to sue them for it! LOL Wow, what a douche. Here is an interesting note. If you read NewEgg's feedback, you will see that every "very dissatisfied" comment is almost immediately padded with several short "Very satisfied" comments. Hmm, each one of the users posting the "very satisfied" comments has postcounts of 0. Also, check the companies with perfect 10s. Nothing is perfect. Looks like ResellerRatings can be purchased as well. Guys, if you care about the quality of the places you shop, do me a favor and find a replacement for Reseller Ratings. BizRate, Dealtime, CNET -- at least on these sites, it is usually obvious when the post is fake. These sites also do a much better job of maintaining integrity. ResellerRatings is a crappy vBulletin Hack. Seems like this guy just wants to make a quick buck from advertising. Please do not base your purchase decision solely on what you see on Reseller Ratings, because 9 times out of 10 you will be reading something totally fake! I think this should be posted up as news on hardware sites, because a lot of people have been entrusting REsellerRatings with their purchase decisions. It is not fair to the businesses or the consumer if the site content is not accurate.
