Exactly--they are unknown--and they also don't know their review has been cut and pasted into a forum. They have no way to make a rebuttal for their comments, whereas the folks who do can carve that review up into mince meat.
It is at best rude to do this.
Pardon me for saying so but I think you enjoy throwing gasoline on fires.
Got to disagree here, Privacy and a public posting on the internet do not go hand in hand. If you want something private, do not post it on the internet. Once it is posted on a public website, it is just that, public. The reviews are available to anyone, and there are no restrictions how they can be used, either legally, ethically, morally or any other "ally". The people post their reviews for everyone to see, expecting that no one will ever comment on them is an unreasonable expectation. If you do not want something to be in the public arena, DO NOT POST IT ON THE INTERNET.
