My WSO review got deleted!

I know this is an age old conversation about whether the WSO section is the best training ever or a den of thieves, but...

I left an honest (but negative) review of a particular article writing service, and my review was deleted! It was a simple review, without attacking the owner of the WSO, just simply left my genuine feedback on my bad experience with them.

Next thing I know, my post is gone!

Now surely, if the WSO section is going to be any good, we can't have a situation where any negative reviews are deleted.

    It doesn't sound to me like "any negative review" gets deleted. Sounds to me like YOUR negative review got deleted. There's still plenty of negative reviews there.

      We don't have that - but negative reviews from those who didn't purchase the
      WSO might be deleted.

    With the lack of information that you're sharing, there is really no way to tell why it was deleted, but judging by your choice of words in your post "den of thieves" I can just imagine why it was deleted.

      In total last week I reported 2 WSO's because they had, not too obvious, but fake proof of earning screenshots. Both WSO sellers were banned. Funny how it seems the honest people get attacked on here lol

    There are two sides to a story. You are only telling us that your review got deleted and that we should take your word that it was not a bad review.

      There we go - everyone assumes everyone is lying! I'm not sure what I could add to it I'm afraid.

      That's what I was thinking...maybe, if you really want to know the issue, you can post the review here for review lol

      Seriously though, I bet you'll find out pretty quick why it was deleted.

      That said, I know that they'll instantly remove a "review" from someone who didn't buy the product or service. I'm assuming you did.

    I find that honey catches bees really well.

    If you have something bad to say, say it in a nice way. (Always be respectful, even if the product sucks. Otherwise it can seem like you're just a jerk or have an axe to grind. Seriously. If you EVER sound pissed off, people can look at it and say "That guy just has an axe to grind, or is having a bad day". It's always better to be calm and collective).

    People have sensitive feelings, about their products. (It's true that some products out there aren't really worth the ink they're printed on, but in my opinion; if someone put's out their hard earned work, they deserve a respectful review, even if it sucks haha)...

    I can't tell you how many bad meals, bad books, bad professors, bad EVERYTHING I've had over the years.

    I can't tell you how many of my friends would "Call the Manager" to complain about a meal. That's just not my style I guess. If it sucks, I might mention it, but I'll never demand that the chef make me a new one or anything. (I would always feel like a shmuck when my friends would call to speak to a manager lol).

    In case you haven't guessed.. I used to eat out *ALOT*. *DAILY*. Lol. (That's another story).

    But I always try to be a gentleman, even if quality is lacking. (And if quality sucks? I'll just remember and vote where it REALLY counts; when it comes time to open my wallet).

    I guess it's a philosophical debate.



    For example, if I was leaving a REALLY bad review for a writing service, I would say it like this:

    I appreciate your service! However, I didn't find that the quality of information was really up to our standards. Therefore, I am unable to put the content to use. I formally request a refund and wish you the best in the future!!!

    Cordially

    Mike
    (Notice how I was very pleasant, and generous? Yet at the same time, I basically said the content totally sucked and I wouldn't use it).

    That my friend, is how to leave a bad review.

    You're not going to get an answer, the forum (appropriately) deletes anything a moderator deems to be made in an inappropriate manner.

    Furthermore sharing too much could earn you an immediate deletion.

    I purchased articles from this seller and they turned out to be direct copies off another website. My advice, avoid and use Warriors for hire.

      If you have evidence that the WSO seller is passing off copied articles as original work, you should report the thread (using the red triangle symbol by the post) and include all relevant info in your report. The mods will see this and decide what action to take. There's no point getting involved in the thread or passing advice to others.

      Reviews are meant to be about the quality of the product or service. If you believe an offer is dishonest or illegal, report it and let the forum's admins deal with it.

      That's not a review, it's a criminal allegation without proof. This is one you should have reported along with submitting your proof. The mods can't just leave up allegations of wrong-doing without proof. Every shyster online would make up crap about his/her competitors if they did.

      That's proof right there that the mods try to do what is right.

      Your complaint is without merit, because if you look, you'll find loads of WSO's with negative reviews. Many have effectively ended the WSO. I've left negative reviews before and they were not deleted. I've asked "uncomfortable" questions of sellers before and they were not deleted. I didn't cross the line from what's allowed to what isn't allowed, and that's all it takes.

      With the two sellers you reported that were banned, you did things the right way (and thank you for that). With the one you're complaining about, it's your own fault it was deleted because you didn't offer a proper review.

      Hint: If the WSO is still active it's not too late to report the thread.

    Had similar. IF you have a bad experience with someone you can't really get away with saying it. Has to be positive especially if the creator has done a lot of business through WF.
    I noticed a moderator edited the proof out of my post when I had an issue with someone which made my post look like it was made up by me. I don't own the forum so I can't dictate what they do and don't do.

        I thought you knew Joseph??? the mods are the most evil people in the world :p

        I once had a mod edit my post to make it look like something I wanted to say, but didn't say it, because I said it earlier.

    There we go - everyone assumes everyone is lying! I'm not sure what I could add to it I'm afraid.
    You are the only one assuming. I only said we only have the side you tell us.

    Your post count only says 9, but I see you have about 100 post's in the WSO section, and a lot of them question the WSO owner. That can been seen as trolling. Also you have to prove your allegations, or they will just get deleted.

    In this case, I suspect you didn't supply the links to where they got the content from, and may be the reason it got deleted.

    There are alot of people who swear there is a conspiracy when it comes to reviews in the WSO section, but extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. You just can't claim someone of selling bogus artcles without proving the links to the evidence.

    Well without providing proof I can see why your post got deleted... Next time probably just hit the report button and getting the mods to sort it out.

    As a few members here have already asked, did you know you were buying PLR?

      Then you need to use the microscopically small red triangle at the bottom left of the WSO and report the listing to the mods and provide all the proof to them. That's the best way to deal with a dishonest seller.
