@you_suck It would be remiss of SPOnG to take writing criticism from a guy who cannot even capitalise correctly.

@you_suck / @lol, -Boo / @Franz In isolation I suppose this article might look a bit lacking, which suggests you didn't bother read other other, very in-depth previews the author produced (and linked to, clearly stating he wasn't going to repeat himself). Did you really want to read stuff you've already read? Or was it that the 93% score wasn't high enough?

But I do take offence. I seriously do.

It is getting to the point where it seems to me that people seriously think:

1) Enthusing over something good = being paid off.
2) Slamming something rubbish = being paid off by a competing publisher.

We are NEVER 'sponsored' in editorial.

If we were, we would state: Advertorial in the header and we would not award a review score nor call it criticism, review or preview.

If we took paid copy, a publisher would have to pay us way over advertising rates for such Advertorial. Also, it would be clearly marked as such for the reader.

It's a simple equation you see: if readers don't trust you, they won't read, they will go away.

No offence.
