    Thats one of the best fcked up fiverr policies example.
    Why would they allow users to rate a gig even after three month when the order is completed within three days of delivery if he didn't bother to contact the seller at that time how could he still have the option to post a review.
    Thats BS but well done You handled it well i could have screwed the buyers website,won't respond and still be happy with one bad review
    If fiverr goes like this it won't be too long when fiverr could introduce a new feature to cancel the order after three month.

    He left me bad feedback because he never liked the traffic I gave him BUT I knew that
    if I send him the same traffic again as a "Sorry" I was sort of forcing him to change
    his mind without asking him to change his feedback...

    These types of customers drive me mad....you complete the gig 6 months earlier
    and then out of nowhere BOOM they leave bad feedback!! What on earth!

    I dont sell on eBay anymore but when I used to run a store I regularly engaged with people who left me negative or neutral feedback. You would be suprised how many people will change feedback once they see there is a human being there just trying to make a living.

    I wouldn't say ''owned''. I actually think you handled that really professionally.

    In other words owned him. Everyone's perception on owned is some hostile typing franticly.

    What the fuck is this? Do you even know what 'owned' means?

    The interpretation of 'owned' is obviously subjective, but OP's use of it is entirely reasonable.

    He gave the customer a very subtle threat veiled in kindness. The threat was to deliver more of this crappy traffic to the customer's site. Since the customer didn't like the traffic to begin with, he certainly wouldn't want this. And on top of this, it seemed as if OP was really going out of his way to 'help' him. Those two things combined almost guaranteed the customer would alter his feedback. Mileage may vary.

    THANKYOU Enryu..

    I knew from the beginning that he never liked the traffic, so I knew if I offered him more of the same
    crap traffic he would change the feedback...

    If I said "You better change that feedback or I will send you more crap traffic" he could of went to
    Fiverr support and said I was threatening him...So I used some "Oh! I'm sorry crap!"

    HENCE the term "I owned him" He tried to hurt me and it back fired on him

    You converted an old unhappy buyer into a positive reviewer with a friendly threat...also known as OWNED.

    "Do I not destroy my enemy by making a friend of them?"

    i like how you painted over the dudes name throughout the entire conversation but left it untouched in the big ass bold font at the top. also, you didn't own jackshit. you're lucky the guy was kind enough to change the feedback. he could have just told you to go fuck yourself and there's nothing you could do about it. you should be thankful, not saying you owned him.

    edit: nevermind about the 1st part, he edited it out. smart move...

    wtf give me the last five minutes back. I was expecting some rookie to get his ass handed too him instead you read him a bedtime story and have him a kiss on the forhead.
