This week has been filled with spam from reviews. As a public reminder, IF you run a company or whatnot for a pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party or theme, having your employees make serial forum accounts (aka Sock Puppets) to post reviews is absolutely spamming, and will end badly if we catch you at it. I will not name names, the people involved know, but there are others out there who have exuberant interns and the like who want to make a lot of reviews. Just don’t do it.

There have also been some possibly legit users who make a first time account just to leave a review. If you’re asking your customers to do that, be aware that sometimes users who have no idea how the forums work come out looking like spammers, and end up with their posts removed.

The tl;dr is simple. Let the real reviews come. If there’s a fake review, or one you feel may be fake, tag it ‘modlook’ and the mods will check it out. If its an angry/should have been a support post review, please don’t tag it unless they’re breaking forum rules. People are allowed to have opinions, even angry ones you don’t agree with.
