What Grinds my Gears - Stupid reviews of products.

Almost every product on Amazon has at least a few replies to questions like...
- I don't know
- I don't have experience with this
- Yes
- No

Gee, thanks. We all can sleep better knowing.

Yeah seriously. I think sometimes people get "credit" or points for a response even though it's useless.

Why take the time to say, "I don't know"...... thanks, thats helpful.

Yep, I just shake my head when they give a bad review because of a delivery delay.

Like, it arrived a day or two later than you expected because Amazon took longer than usual, and somehow that's the fault of the manufacturer?

"Works great and it's awesome but it came Thursday instead of Tuesday so I'm giving it ONE STAR"

The WGMG comes from Peter Griffin on Family Guy.

Yes, people do get some type of 'credit' on Amazon for posting reviews. But, they must be flagged as 'Helpful'. If you post enough, and they are found helpful, you could get offers of free products for an impartial review. People don't understand this, and post stupid answers!
