    So I just took a look at an old review post I did about a month ago for a service in the BST I purchased. The review was not a great review as I criticized the work I had payed for. It was honest and not bad at all.

    The thing is, it is deleted. Why would this be?

    I posted, " In all honesty I am not here to ruin any reputation but I was not really stoked on the service I got. " Everything was true.

    So if my post got deleted for honest feedback, then what good is any feedback??

    I dont think I will ever buy anything from the BST section because the reviews are skewed. Anyone else agree?

    Oh yeah and funny thing is, I even had some thanks on that post lol. Maybe that is why it got deleted

    Happens quite a bit on the forums unfortunately. Some posts simply mysteriously disappear. I'm not sure if the mods are held accountable for the posts they delete by anyone, but I would hope so. I would prefer the mods edit threads and leave a "last edited by Mod" tag, rather then delete entire posts. Not sure if thats possible to do on BHW.

    Yeah for sure. It just really hurts the good reviews I see because who knows what bad reviews were deleted. I think I have some good enough rep to make a credible enough post about a service.

    Guess it must have been the "wrong" service to mess with.

    I would expect this at WF.

    But wow at bhw? I guess the quality is going down.
    Thanks for the eye opener.

    I have left some honest and not so good reviews for a product I bought in the BST section.

    The review is still there.

    I have seen Many Negative Reviews unremoved on BST Section.
    This Might be from the service thread of big guys?

    I've seen it both ways. I've seen high ranking members with bad reviews that stick. I've also seen another thread where they were called out for deleted comments. I'm pretty sure I know what thread you're talking about. ;)

    I think it depends how you write it...
    and if it sounds like you are just trying to trash their sales...
    then it gets deleted....

    but if it seems like you are really trying to get the product up and running... then it sticks...

    I guess.

    I always write reviews that are not too harsh.
    Just because I could not get the product to work does not mean I need to trash the whole thread....

    Keep in mind.... these people are just people like you and me...
    most are not large corporations like microsoft... that can really polish the product.

    You don't like the product.... then just get your money back.

    Okay now it is showing up. It wasn't showing up before maybe it was me or something or my browser or whatever. I don't want to start some war so mod if you want to close this thread.

    Someone is offering a service selling micro niche sites + something else.

    And I posted in the thread asking if anyone of the people that bought the service were making money....

    And later about 2-4 days later one of the past buyers posts his review and says he has not made a penny and the service was a big let.....

    And surprise surprise....

    First of, the OP completely ignored both posts but did reply all the posts before and after.

    And a few days later.... both posts were deleted.

    Just saying... smells a bit dodgy.

    I think you have things mixed up - moderators enforce the rules set forth by the site owner and super administrator, not by you. I'm not accountable for my actions to you - not in any way, shape, or form. If the inmates ran the asylum here this place would burn to the ground in a matter of days.

    Personally I take offense to the implication that BST threads are handled in any way except 100% above board. Nobody is taking bribes to delete posts or giving any preferential treatment. The core staff here actually communicate quite regularly with each other and every item that is actioned is viewable by all of us.

    Have I been offered bribes in my term as a staff member here? Yup, many many times - for everything from lifting bans to deleting posts etc - but trust me when I tell you that every one of those requests fell on deaf ears. I've even told personal friends that there was nothing I could do within my reach to help them with similar situations. Your bribe means nothing to me - monetarily or otherwise. My and my fellow staff member's integrity cannot be purchased for any price.

    If you have specific items you'd like us to investigate, gather your evidence and lay it on the table. I think as a whole the staff has proven that we are more than willing to look into any matters that warrant investigation. But to post in public forum based on theory, speculation, or hearsay is quite ludicrous and frankly a slap in the face to the very people who keep this place running on a daily basis.
