BAD FORM!! What else would you expect from a partner !? This forum should be for unbiased feedback - primarily from customers...

@reviewer105102 - You're correct that the feedback should primarily be from customers. However, we do allow users who work for vendor partners to post reviews. On reviews written by partners, we include a disclosure that the reviewer has a business relationship with the vendor other than being a customer.

Reviews written by Real Users generally receive more likes and views than reviews written by partners. This causes the reviews written by Real Users to appear higher on relevant areas of the site.

Reviewers are required to register either with their LinkedIn profile or their company email address. This requirement enables us to prevent vendors or other non-users from posting fake reviews. This validation process combined with active community moderation and our commitment to review every post, allows us to have confidence in our information.
