Review Guidelines


We follow the similar standards for taste as many large online organizations who allow public reviews. We typically do not edit reviews. If a review contains any of the disallowed criteria listed below, it will be simply deleted, even if the majority of the review is benign.

While most reviews will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. We can not review individual moderation decisions with contributors.

  • Stay on-topic – reviews should be for the product listed and topical to your experience with the product itself
  • Don’t “SHOUT” – please refrain from using all caps in your reviews
  • No profanity or hate speech – comments that denigrate others on the basis of racial, religious, gender, nationality, sexuality or other personal characteristics are not allowed
  • Don’t break the law – this includes but is not limited to libel, plagiarism, or condoning illegal activity
  • Don’t engage in spamming - do not add the same review to multiple products
  • Don’t advertise – reviews should be focused on the product offered, not advertisements for a competing product
  • Be yourself - don’t impersonate or falsely claim to represent a person or organization
