Re: product reviews
It would be nice if we posted reviews of stuff we actually used ourselves.
Also it would be nice if you have an actual experience with the same product that is different that you post it in the same thread.
If you have experience with a similar product that you think is a better choice, then please just post something like "I preferred using XYZ to do the same thing. Please see the review I posted here..." NO MORE and give link to your review. That way it prevents things from getting nasty and not everyone has access to the same products.
And please no "that's stupid" posts. Just because a product will be a solution for only a few, those few will deeply appreciate the information.
And I think it would be a good idea if you know something that is dangerous about the product or how it's used, then post actual facts and links not "My best friend's third cousin's college roommate in college next door neighbour knew someone who...." type stories.
The product reviews and info we post on here is read not only days but years later. When you do a review, it might be a good idea to keep that in mind. Links go away with alarming frequency. So product names, model numbers, complete descriptions where possible are a good thing. Amazon so far has been the best link to give in addition to manufacturer websites. I feel it's up to the reader to be a good consumer and locate the best buy by doing their own homework.
