This is a PRIVATE poll. It is also MULTIPLE CHOICE to choose only where appropriate.

REASON: I wrote a mixed incall review of an escort five days ago. In short, everything about the lady physically was extremely appealing, but the "service" was below par. Not 10 minutes after posting it I received a PM. Without revealing the details or name, generally the sender was critical, wondering why I posted it. None of the facts I wrote in the review were disputed, in fact, a very well respected member verified a similar experience. I responded basically, it's an honest factual review.
I found it a bit incredible that after all of my usually positive reviews, with some minor criticisms, that one of my few more critical reviews was questioned almost instantly. Instead of reacting angrily about this intrusion I've allowed some time to think about whether to make notice of this disconcerting contact. In view of the recent thread focusing on our own responsibility for raising rates, this critical private contact had me wondering how often others have tried to influence reviews by trying to have them altered, questioning integrity, or generally bashing the review. How much of this sort of interference with what is written or the writing of reviews has been attempting to influence what you write, and thus also affecting escort rates???
Let me acknowledge that whatever someone one else may do to influence a review, it is the writer's responsibility for letting that influence affect the honest character and facts of the review. Still, the fact that there is influence that can be variously described as inappropriate, manipulative, or self-serving, etc., is another important factor in the rates we clients pay.
How much of this is going on against your honest and factual reviews?
