Monday Mix: “Favorite” User Reviews, Sales

By Voxy  

thumbs up by joeltelling.Sigh. I just can’t help wanting to get out my red blue purple green pen and edit the crap out of some of the reviews I see on blogs and store sites.

Take, for example, the following review for the Kat von D Deluxe Uber Gift Set, recently sighted at

yeah i bought dis and yeah i thought it would be like dark colours you know she a dark person kinda and when i got home and looked at it i just took all the “good” and dark stuff and just gave the rest to ma daughter, this is like something that a kid would like it dont matter the price, if you got money to blow get dis

Age of reviewer: 13-17. What is the age of the child, I wonder?

By the way, cost of the kit: $425. And astoundingly, 0 of 110 people found the review helpful. Huh.

(Oh, come on, it wouldn’t be Foxy Voxy without a little academic snark! I’m sure you’ve also seen some reviews that make you want to take pen in hand and go forth to conquer the world, or at least the run-on sentence and the comma splice. I’ll happily take contributions in the comments!)
