Interesting... As someone who buys on Amazon, it's become increasingly annoying having to feed through the reviews of a product to get an idea of what's bs and what's not. Another problem is that there can be multiple different sellers for one product and the corresponding reviews for said product don't differentiate (95% of the time) from which seller they bought it from (or if they even bought on Amazon at all)....

Wondering if you've ever tried fakespot dot com? I haven't but would be curious to know thoughts on it if you have.
Thanks for your post. Apologies for the total stranger post - I stumbled onto your post/blog whilst searching this topic. :)))
