Thread: Encouragement to post reviews

  1. #1

    Encouragement to post reviews

    I had not visited this board for about 3-4 of years till a few wks. ago and what has struck me is the steep diminution in the reviews of the the girls. Sure there are posts in different categories chatting about this and that and that's fine...I have no problem with people talking about hockey and whatever...I like hockey...used to play it a lot.
    However, it seems to me the primary purpose of this board is for hobbyists to write/read reviews so as not to be led around by the nose by all the rip-off agencies out there. These days on MERB it seems you're lucky to see 2-3 new reviews/day whereas before it was way more. So I just want to encourage everyone to post, I will do my best and have rebegun to post reviews.

    What I'm trying to say is that at any one time, day or night, there's always 10-15 guys minimum on this site so there are definitely a lot of girls being seen by guys who know MERB. So come on all of you who benefit from this site but never or rarely post... don't just leech on posters here...contribute to the activity of reviewing ...it won't happen unless you sit down and do it. Older posters too, come on, you're posting about this and that but I'm not seeing you concretely reviewing too much anymore...it seems that way to me anyway. Let's get this board lit up with reviews. If nobody wants to review anymore that's fine with me but I,d just like to know what's going on. I live here in Mtl. and know my way around and can see a large volume of girls once I start but if people don't post I won't post either that's fine by me I know the reliable agencies out and can get by.

    Bon point. Completly agree with you. Could b millions of reasons not to post....BUT could b also a fun adventure to share a nice encounter and make members BENEFIT from it. Only few words or some lines could b very helpful to avoid or to recommand. We r more than 70,000 members here and i got the impression that very often we read always the reviews of a minority.....it's nice...but we need more. So come on board and b helpful.
    I know my English is not that good----that's why am doing my reviews mainly in french-----but the important for me it's to deliver a message....and thanks to all for your comprehension and kindness . So don't b shy ,too busy and take time to share a bit.....will b really appreciate. Thanks shakenotstired.

    I dont want to be mean in a way...But for 4 years you are not here ...And now you are complaining!!!...So in better word...Just go again for 4 years or more away lolll...
    No...but in a serious note...I do agree for MYSELF for exemple i dont post anymore ...Cause yes work and life etc...Mais Surtout because i did find the one who does complete me to time to time and she live not far from me...So lucky me Also another point....If and when i go to the city...I do see some sometimes...But i prefer not to post cause the ladyz doesnt need more review in some case...So why bother telling the same story like all does...
    Also another is that some of them dont like to post...I know for a example a person that does almost every week see a different girl BUT dont post about it...But if you ask is opinion... is always glad to help..So for closing my post....Some like to post,some dont...some like to read...some like to just take a look and make their own decision...And also i know the market is low for some in winter..Hope that some do post more...Like the last sp i saw when i went to MTL i did post about it...But almost nobody talk,post,speak etc about it....So why bother ...But for sure if i do have a bad experience i gonna share to prevent another merb member of getting the same problem...But also why bother ...I have to say i am very sad about what is happening to the board...But i do still like it,yes to talk for some hockey PENS...times to times...But sad that if and when you contribute you have almost no comeback...or say hey thanks i did went to see her and she was the same with me...or ymmv...Anyway...welcome back lolll...Btw after 4 years you should post a lottttttttttt of encounter
    Donner une deuxième chance a quelqu'un qui ta trahi c'est comme donner une deuxième balle a quelqu'un qui ta manqué!!!

    I think everyone should review for all their favorites if they don't have multiple pages. This is how I predetermine good SPs

    I believe everyone should review all their bad/medium encounters if justified.

    The only reason you shouldn't post is repeating what was already said many times. Or not allowed

    End of story.

    I haven't reviewed in a while but I have every intention of doing them... Just busy

    Maybe a rule of thumb, if a review helped you make a decision, you owe a review. We should get merb rankings like other forums based on # of posts. Posts can be set to measure only review posts.

    I like how people are here complaining about lack of reviews, but most are nowhere to be seen when people harass the people who actually do review.

    I've seen, new reviewers get blasted as shills for posting a positive review of a lesser known girl.

    I've seen, less known reviewers (but not total newbies) get blasted when they share a less than favorable encounter with someone else's favorite. I've actually had a few nasty PMs myself for posting a not 100% review (like 90%) of a popular girl in the past.

    I've seen, some escorts be extremely critical of reviewers and fire back at a negative review with a total lack of discretion providing personal details on said reviewer. Thankfully the mods are pretty quick here.

    I've seen, popular reviewers take discounts and freebies without mentioning it in their reviews and be celebrated... until they are found out (and no, not just one).

    Etc...

    Except for that last example, people are just happy to sit and let it happen, it's not very encouraging for new or lesser known users. If you want more reviews, it means you need more reviewers and for that the community needs to breed an atmosphere where reviews are encouraged, regardless of whether the review is positive or negative. Now this means some of you will need to put your white armor away and let something you might not like to read go (I'm talking about what would be an honest review here, not what could objectively be called an attack).

    Now, that being said, that doesn't mean that people should be writing classless reviews (positive or negative). Ultimately the service you're reviewing is provided by a real, flesh and blood person who has feelings and emotions. Tact is important, and a negative review is probably already hard enough for a person to take without also being insulted. On the other end of the spectrum, less than 100% positive reviews should be taken as an opportunity to find out what you could be doing better and grow from the experience. I view these as exactly the same as a performance evaluation at work.

    I know some on both sides of the business disagree with me on this, but these are my thoughts on reviews in general and the subject of discussion of this thread.

    Thanks for starting this thread.

    I encourage people who never posted reviews, newbies, lurkers to at least try.
    Also, try to have some hard skin and don't give up after the first critics from your peers (White Knights).

    Getting Critics of reviews are normal cause Reviews can also be a weapon to let out some level of frustration and also cause they can be enhanced to get some rebates/freebies...
    Sometime people may critic your legit review and You should then defend your points should you need to.

    The experience of reviewing is usually great and flawless if you do it with a minimum of respect to the girls and others no matter if the review is positive or not.

    The more reviews the better. No matter if she has 20 pages. You can say that you had a similar experience as others not to repeat what has been said multiple time but it is still good if you express your satisfaction (or not satisfaction).

    All reviewers have different tastes and that is why many different reviewers and point of views are needed.
    There are some here that review positively girls that I would not see because they are less picky on the physical aspect as I am.
    However, there are others I've found out to have similar tastes as me and their reviews always play big in my decisions.


    I believe this topic (Review or Not to Review) has been debated multiple time already...

    I don't think the dilemma that many of us have about posting negative reviews should have an effect regarding positive reviews.

    If a lady has lots of positive reviews, it is very useful information.

    If a lady has been around for a while and has relatively few reviews, that is probably evidence that she is not that fantastic.

    So there is really no reason not to do good reviews.

    I usually always do reviews, but I remember once many years ago seeing a lady from Devilish who was a very late night substitute for another girl who I had prebooked but was too drunk to make the appointment. The substitute was about 20 pounds heavier than the photos, and the session was just not that great.

    But as she was leaving she talked about how she really enjoyed going home after the night shift, cooking a big breakfast for her and her dog (the dog liked bacon), taking the dog for a walk, and crawling into bed with the dog and going to sleep. She was just such a nice person that I just could not do a negative review and think about her reading it while sitting at the table feeding bacon to the dog. I would have just felt like the world's biggest asshole. So I did no review at all of her.

    But on that same trip I saw a highly-reviewed Eleganza girl and I did a favorable review of her.

    So I think everyone should at least do reviews of the girls they like.

    Personally, I think the decline in reviews is c-36 related. That ridiculous law should have no effect, but I think many guys invalidly think it is some kind of evidence of a crime. I could of course be wrong.

    Good points which I hope will be considered by all concerned on both sides. I'm glad this thread has allowed you to voice out loud the opinions of others who I hope will try to consider contributing a little more. We all stand to benefit. Otherwise, you know, a couple new posts in the escorts review section for a 24-48 hr period...it just makes MERB a little boring...IMHO.

    Ok, I jump in!

    I know from my profile that some might think I'm a newbie but I use to have an other more compelling alias here and I started to see mp and sp around 20 years ago.
    That being said, I don't want to burst anybody bubble but this board is mainly about two things:

    1. A business which is about making money
    2. A hobby which is to make one fantasy come true (or almost )

    About the 1st point I believe that this board serves well the actors of this industry, giving them some room for publicity (fantasy for our eyes) and reviews which is essential because they can't go on hw bilboard! Reviews a very important simply because a lot of people read them. But doing so, hobbyist have to be able to read between the line since the matter is highly subjective and is not disinterested. Some won't post because of that, or because it has already being said: it would only ad a drop to the ocean of words. The last expression is not sarcastic, some of you guys are amazing writters .

    Finally, the 2nd issue. Fantasy and specifically the sexual one is a a powerfull drive that is sometimes difficult to control . Some people are better than other at sharing it or simply are more private and don't need to show their 'hunting trophy to the world . Actually, diversity is the spice of life and is fun. This board is sometime like going to a movie and enjoying the show. Again, hobbyist have to be able to read between the line!

    My two cent, elron.

    What you said.

    In my case, I mostly see des valeurs sûres that I choose carefully. I don't have a high paying job so I choose not to go hunting for la perle rare (with cheapest rates?) on websites like kijiji, ann123, CL or Mtl BP. Unless she has some good reviews here. Otherwise, it's like playing la roulette russe which I can't afford.

    So my input on some well known SP would only make me a perroquet repeating what anyone else is saying.

    I also don't do it out of respect for the SP if it happens that her services are not up to her reputation. She's not a fuck machine. She's human. There's also chemistry and YMMV to take into account.

    I will say something only if I was given a bad service by an SP that doesn't care about her client or that something weird has come up during the encounter.

    But it would still only be an opinion. My opinion.

    I for one am guilty as charged. In ten sessions I might post one review. No real reason, just don't get around to it.

    So for 2016 I will try an increase my percentage of posts.
    In ten sessions post 5 reviews is my goal.

    Most guys will not tell you about the best places they have been to, they want to keep it for themselves.

    Thumbs up

    Guilty as well!

    I end up getting caught up in work and real life again... my apologizes.

    Not many 2015 reviews from me, based on how much I had been hobbying.
