    Couldn't that get dicey? How would they know if it is a false review vs a legit review? I am ok with them removing false reviews & spam reviews. Microsoft needs to be careful not remove legit (good or bad) reviews. That how people judge whether or not to get the product(s) if people can't find information elsewhere.

    Classify email as junk

    I didn't know moving it to the spam/junk folder was the same as marking it as spam... I thought the junk/spam button also sent an abuse alert etc to postmaster/abuse@domain

    I have to agree with Groze. How would they know? It is good to know that they are smart enough to do something with the reviews and are working to get the store better.

    Well, you can see by the steps they are taking, they have technology designed to identify spam (probably massive number of reviews coming from the same IP address and accounts, or similar), as well as a review process which means reviews can be flagged and viewed by a person, as well as the ability for the app owner and community to respond to comments.

    Though I can understand where Microsoft is coming from as I've seen (read) some very questionable "reviews" on apps and products, I can't wholeheartedly agree with deleting or censoring them as this could clearly lead to abuse the other way. Now we get to where the dev's "control" what's being written about their own products, which can lead to fraud and false advertisement.

    Overall I'm not a fan of this policy; but I agree that something needs to be done with those reviews that are clearly abusive and nasty. The "this program sucks, don't buy" is clearly not productive or helpful to anyone and does need to be bounced. The question (concern) I have is where will the line be drawn?

    My two cents.

    ______ The line is right here the posts that don't really contribute to anything or the really negative ones will probably be the ones to get removed.

    Constructive criticism(for well or bad) is always good. But the problem with todays perceived web anonymity is there are to many trolls, and I'm sorry to say it, but, most people don't criticize any more, they just 6!tch.

    Right. Who's defining "the really negative"??? And what is "really negative"?

    I would say a large share, and that's what concerns me; especially when you don't know what defines what? Yes, "this program sucks, don't buy" is cut and dry. But what about - "product quit working and vendor failed to return my calls, as such I can't recommend this product". Is that cut and dry?

    I am ever are of this and just use common sense and filtering when reading through reviews. Amazon is one such place where people moan and groan a lot about nothing; but as I said, I just filter out the noise and use common sense when reading reviews there, and elsewhere.

    And yes, constructive criticism is good. Key word being constructive.

  12. This happened to me on Walmart's forums when I posed a mildy negative post about a new camera I bought on-line. They said to me it wouldn't be posted because it was unduly negative. Where are we? North Korea? Goodbye freedom.

    Some are even more restrictive Berghaus bounced a review I did on shoes. I said were very good but for someone with broader feet may not be suitable. Some will allow NO criticism at all, so handing this over to others could be a corporate ideal and who’s to say when political views will breach the guidelines or when a different firm needs blocking? Its not the hidden stat spying/vetting but corporation’s doing it this way.
