    [–] Ladies, what's the weirdest fetish a guy has dropped on you all of a sudden with little to no warning? Were you with it or...against it? Thinnestspoon 9 points ago in AskReddit

    I guess if you are clear on the separation then these things are fine Doesn't mean to are into actual incest same with age play and same with pony play. It's mostly just taking hot things from teenage years and transforming them into something safe and consensual for adults.

    [–] Asahi bought Fuller's (and Dark Star) so I updated my Brewery Connection poster! Thinnestspoon 1 points ago in CraftBeer

    I live just down the road from Fuller's and they are one of my favs. Hope this doesn't ruin things.

    [–] Other than cheating, what secret do you keep from your SO to prevent upsetting them? Thinnestspoon 2 points ago in AskReddit

    So he has an affair and he doesn't wanna talk about it, but you spend money on much-needed stuff for your children and that's the issue?

    He sounds fucking toxic.

    [–] When you drop something on the floor and tell it to fuck off before attempting to pick it up Thinnestspoon 6 points ago in britishproblems

    I work from home and I'm sure my neighbours must hear total silence from my side for hours at a time and then "CUUUNT!" When I spill a bit of drink on the carpet.

    [–] Thames eels 'left hyperactive due to high levels of cocaine in water' Thinnestspoon 1 points ago in worldnews

    I was given it during surgery, which is very common.

    Edit: Sorry, just saw the other person's comment telling you exactly the same thing.

    [–] Just had a disappointing takeaway and I left a bad review. Not feeling guilty enough about it, they got in touch and said they'd give me a full refund and were really apologetic. I'm the worst human being alive. Thinnestspoon 3 points ago in britishproblems

    Basically, never trust 5 star reviews. Always take a sample set of 3 and 4 star for a better view of something. If something has almost exclusively 5 star reviews then it's probably fake, especially if it's amazon

    It's funny, I always do this when I am looking to buy something, but unfortunately, for my own business, we have about 250+ 5 star reviews and maybe 6 or 7 2–4 star reviews and about 3 or 4 1 star reviews.

    The predicament I am in is that I sell my own artwork and have worked for years to find the right paper and the right inks, and all the customer services is handled by my family. We put free treats in with every order, and every customer gets a hand-written thank you note. I genuinely tried so hard to make myself a 5 star brand. The downside is that looking too good online can actually do more harm than good and your site can get penalised by Google, if they think that you have too many good reviews with no bad ones. Luckily, we've not been effected.

    I think I am more suspicious when I see a ton of 1 star reviews on Amazon, as it's a well known tactic that skuzzy sellers use to try and crush their competitors. I guess it's still better than the type of Amazon reviews that say:

    "I ordered this item and have no feedback about it".

    I think I'll watch some today! I love the dodgy Russian video camera one, where there is a riot outside and the crowd parts for Del.

    Exactly this. If I get a bad review, I leave it up, but I also reply publicly and personally with what I am going to do to fix it. And not some "Our customer services team are sorry to hear you were disappointed".

    The few times we have made big mistakes, most of the customers have come back once we fixed it and said it actually strengthened their trust in us. Old school honesty and treating your customers goes along a way, especially in an age where it's unusual.

    I think Amazon in general is awash with fake reviews, and from what I have read from sellers on there, Amazon don't do a whole lot to fix it.

    I mean, assuming I did the same, and someone found out and reported me, it wouldn't be Amazon coming after me, it would be whoever the body is that deal with this type of stuff in the UK (similar to the ICO, I guess). They could probably then ask me to provide proof of every sale to each customer and show payment information to make sure I didn't undercharge.

    Never underestimate the depths to which people can start digging and investigating if they are about to absolutely wreck you!

    Firstly, if you are receiving free goods in return for reviews, you have to make it very clear that you were given free stuff. There are laws that cover disclosing any form of promotion/sponsorship, and I am pretty sure that would cover things like this. You'd have to check in more depth, but if you are caught doing it, I would imagine you'll be in the shit.

    I did read about a company a while back that got absolutely fucked for doing something similar, although they were flat out buying fake reviews, but they got a seriously big fine for doing that. The punishment for faking reviews is more severe than you would expect.

    Also, I personally don't see anything wrong with a company sending out free stuff to people in order to get reviews if, as I mentioned, it's clear what the arrangement was and the review is honestly the opinion of the reviewer. I think it's fucking skuzzy to swap stuff for fake reviews, as it pretty much ruins the trust of honest customers.

    Basically, if a company sends you a nice wallet or something and you like it, and on your review you say you were sent one for free, but even if you had paid full price you'd be happy with it, then that's cool.

    If some company sends you a shitty pair of headphones, that sound like crap, and in return you go to Amazon and leave a 'customer review' saying they are awesome, then that is unlawful and trashy.

    None of this is straight up legal advice, it's just what I have discovered in the course of making sure I run my own shit ethically and lawfully. I'd recommend reading up on the laws and penalties surrounding all of this. It may be that you're not doing anything wrong at all!

    If anyone leaves a 1 star review for my business, I immediately try and fix whatever was wrong for them, or explain why what they wanted is not what they got. I also leave up their 1 star review. I care less about keeping all 5 star reviews and more about keeping (or trying to keep) a customer.

    If the takeaway is coming at it from a "shit, we're sorry we screwed up, here's your money back and maybe you could give us another try sometime.", then I'd say that's fine.

    If it's a "Hey, here's your money back. Wanna have a re-think about that review?", not only is that fucking cheeky, it's also against the law. You can't incentivise giving positive reviews with any financial reward and I'm pretty sure that includes refunding money.

    Only Fools and Horses

    My absolute favourite. I never get tired of seeing repeats. I just think David Jason's timing is perfect.
