“Whoa, ease up Broadzilla. Nobody is saying anything bad about the reviewers. Nuggetreggae was saying that money influenced whether is gets published by the site owners.” No Nuttreggea is the one who needs to ease up as this is an inaccurate statement and an insult to the owners of this site. At a minimum, he needs to yield to us the proof behind this very serious remark, or apologise for pulling statements like this out of his ass. Which is where it came from I guarantee it. The remark, throws the entire staff into a bad light, even though he directed it at “the owners” as it infers that their hard work is “filtered” by the owners and the filter is money. I can assure you that the first time this happened, the revieing teams would tell the owners to stick it and quit. Anyone would. Just as an FYI to anyone that reads reviews around here. these items be it software or hardware are obtained by the volunteer staffers on the Review Teams and are a result of communications with manufacturers and developers, by the members of the team or usually, by the Review team leader. The owners of the site are totally out of the process and are frankly very busy with other matters as reviewing is only one facet of running such a complicated website. This is simply not the case and it is exactly why I had to say something. It simply is not true.
