The other day, however, I decided to write a negative review of a certain well known company/service. It wasn't a smear campaign and I was careful to express it as only one person's opinion. But Ezinearticles categorized it as a "problem" article. When I asked for clarification, a customer rep informed me that it's not allowed to criticize a company.
I suppose this is for legal reasons. I suspect it wouldn't have been a problem if I criticized some obscure product rather than a major corporation. I can't blame them for not wanting to contend with corporate lawyers. However, it's also somewhat hypocritical to have a site populated with thousands of hyped up reviews masked as articles, and to disallow negative reviews.
Not a major issue for me, just a little rant.
