Thread: ...Oh my, the hatred!

  1. #1

    ...Oh my, the hatred!

    ... So I stumbled on this "fun" little Twitter account of someone who seems to really really hate slobbyists and The Erotic Review (or review board members in general).

    https://twitter.com/FCK_TER_

    My "favorite" tweet:

    https://twitter.com/FCK_TER_/status/775465083405078528

    I am gobsmacked... I really don't know how to react to this... So much hatred!!!
    On the flipside, is this how Sps can feel when they come visit the boards?? (I don't know TER, or how they might be worse than MERB)
    Should I feel guilty for being a member on a escort review board? Am I part of the problem??

    ... I think I'm gonna take a shower like Kermit!

    ***Now if you happen to have an opinion on the matter, please-please no shit-slinging guys! This can be discussed in a civilised manner!***

    Some of those posters are/were on perb.

    TER used to require members to post reviews to maintain status. That is an incentive for them to post fictitious reviews. I do not know if it is still like that.

    There are some members in Winnipeg who have posted outright fabrications, I know this for a fact. And a few who are far worse than just online jerks. I do feel sorry for the women who were their victims.

    Then I understand better the anger directed at TER!

    While I don't wholeheartedly agree with that tweet(some of you are really lovely people) that account is more for TER, and I agree with their hatred for that board.

    They will reject reviews not explicit enough(and I mean seriously graphic), have been known to encourage fake reviews, and are very, very awful in the way they treat providers in general.

    But no, that's not the way we view all boards and those that post on them, only specific ones *cough*SP411*cough*

    I've used TER (and reviewed on TER) in the past, but all the criticisms here are correct; and in many ways it's gotten worse over the last five years or so. You have to be a VIP member to get anything out of the reviews, which means either paying or writing reviews (whether you've actually seen a companion or not). In addition to the expectation of explicitness (as Amber points out), which some of us find tactless and gross, their rating system demands that only SPs who do above-and-beyond (CIM, Greek, etc) can get the highest marks. You can have a blissful GFE session with a beautiful woman and still give her only 7/10.

    But I didn't know that they treat providers unfairly. Not good.

    TER's problems go right back to the beginning as the founder was found to be threatening and coercing ladies into free service and was eventually arrested for hiring a hit man and for drugs. Everything but the hired hit I find unsurprising given how it is setup. The best part about TER is I can see the non-smokers without having to pay membership. The worst part is almost everything else.

    There are two clearly defined genres of customer.

    Amber, I imagine you and most elite ladies prefer the genre interested in dinner dates, companionship, doing various things together like gym or going to the beach. And when in private making love with someone you have some kind of connection with. This is what I like too, yes it may be a fantasy but it is a good one and I like to think the lady enjoys it too.

    TER caters to an overgrown teenager market. Guys read the creepy reviews and try to outdo each other at the lady's expense. Treating the women like crap is no big deal for them, she isn't a human being, she's just a tool to be used. Everyone would probably be better off if these guys were using an inflatable love doll. I almost punched a guy out at work after he went on a rant about what he did with a street hooker...in our lunch room, with women present. I do think the bad attitudes fostered on TER get carried over into real life.

    That Twitter account looks like it belongs to a disgruntled pimp that provides thievery and got too many bad reviews and now everyone is staying away. Good job review boards

    You're right--it's coming back to me. I was a semi-regular on TER when the shit hit the fan years ago and the founder was ousted, or something. I don't have a good memory about it but I do remember a big kerfuffle and the owner looking like a complete jerk and getting the boot--or something like that.

    I always found TER's review system bizarre and prejudicial. For example, many years ago when I was a VIP on TER I tried to review a massage girl in NYC. She was a higher end massage girl who offered extras but on our first visit I just opted for a straight massage. I tried to give her a 10 on service because, for the HJ service requested and given, she was great. But the maximum allowable score for a HJ service is a 7. They downgraded my review to a 7 on service and after that I stopped posting reviews. I have had a membership on and off and there is a tendency for the reviews only visible to VIP members to be a bit more graphic and misogynistic in tone than what you would read on MERB. This is because the authors know that SPs and fellow members and/or White Knights are unable to critique or challenge the review if it's wrong or over the top. The VIP reviews stand as "unimpeached truth", but I try to read between the lines. I very recently did find a fairly helpful TER review on an MP girl in NYC and I ended up seeing her. The review overrated her slightly but she was a good find.

    I'd have to disagree a bit, since there's definitely way more than just two clearly defined type of clients, but I do agree with your reference to the TER market!

    Just so we're clear though, I'm not an "elite" lady who prefers extended dates. If anything I'll always pick some quick hot fucking over dinner dates any day(not that they aren't also enjoyable)!

    Unfortunately for those in the states, TER is one of their main sites.

    About 12 years ago I read the reviews written about a Montreal girl who did most of her biz in NY.
    Most of her reviews were pretty good and accurate. There was one NY guy who gave her maximum points on 2 reviews. A bit over the top.
    Then they got into an argument and she wouldn`t see him again.
    He made up a very negative review of her that was as different from his 2 previous ones as night and day.
    What I`m saying is that there probably are a lot of false reviews on TER

    Thanks to all the people who have posted and made this situation around TER clearer! Apparently they more than deserve some hate coming their way!
    Too bad the FCKTER Twitter account seems to put all the people who go to review boards in the same basket...

    So, to recap, TER has a membership system that encourages fake reviews, a review system biased towards relating explicit acts, members with a "bro" mentality, bad ethics, and a one-of-a-kind site founder:
    From the Wikipedia page about The Erotic Review:
    "Criticism
    The site has been met with criticism, most of which centered upon its founder. Some critics have claimed that Elms has accepted bribes to promote certain agencies or call girls and has pressured others into providing sexual favors.[8] Others have made claims of Elms threatening them with bodily harm for criticizing the site or refusing to provide sexual services. Elms denied the claims. Others have expressed frustration over the company's association with law enforcement, stating that the site should alert escorts or users if someone is a police officer.
    The Erotic Review distanced itself from Elms in 2009 and cut ties with him after an arrest in Phoenix that same year."

    Seems not all review boards are created equal!
    Despite it's more than questionable ethics, TER seems very popular sadly...
