I find more serious reviews on Newegg and Amazon than anywhere else for what I've bought but I wouldn't call it sarcasm that is the problem with reviews.

The mass majority of "bad" reviews are those whom aren't even reviewing the product itself. I understand the frustration of getting a product that doesn't work out of the box, it happens. Unfortunately that has nothing to do with the product itself and by rating something 1 or 0 out of 5 stars it destroys the products credibility when you are actually looking for feedback. People just need to realize what a review means and how you actually got about reviewing it. Amazon has a great number of users who initially review it crappy for a fail-out-of-box product and update it when they get the new one, that's reasonable.

IMO If you don't actually have a working product to review don't even add your input because all you are going to do is bitch and moan about how Newegg shipped you a crappy product bundled by an outsourced non-American made product that has lowered the quality of the product. It's completely irrelevant to what people are looking for when they want feedback.

Anyone else know what I mean?

Just goes to show that computers aren't smart. They're high speed idiots.

Even dumb Humans can detect sarcasm better than 77%, maybe because they have so much practice at it.

lol isnt the whole point of sarcasm to say a sentence, but with a tone that underlines your not serious about the statement you just made? this is why i dont like discussing important topics via text/email, but rather over the phone, so i can hear emotions, which, imo, is really how sarcasm is portrayed, along with facial and body expressions. i wouldnt put much hope in a product that checks for caps and exclamation points over raw emotions.

Huh? A product that doesn't work out of the box has nothing to do with the product itself? Did you really say that?

Just say no to drugs!

I think he means people using the review section to complain isn't useful. In a perfect world, people who receive faulty units would request a new product and review that but include in their review that the first one they got didn't work.

[citation][nom]JMcEntegart[/nom]I can already tell that this is going to be the most annoying/confusing thread I've ever read. . . What have I done?[/citation]

At least Apple didn't invent it...
