    It took me a minute to connect the name on the comment to the author - great stunt! I had to write and at least acknowledge that someone out here goes back through the archives and looks for interesting articles that got missed when off-line.

    And personally, I always take reviews with a grain of salt - for the very reasons you mention.

    Thanks for a good article, with a chuckle at the end.

    I think this was a wonderful roundup story. The author did a super job of finding interesting sources and combining that information in a respectful and elegant way. It is shocking, however, to believe that some people would actually make up fake reviews. I know I would never do that. Great job Michael! You rock!
