Cool. I hope more companies do that. I write or say positive things about products all the time. It would be nice to be paid for it.
Getting outraged about this seems silly. Should Microsoft pay people for complaining about their product? No. Are they paying people to make good reviews? Nope... they're just paying people who have good things to say about their product. If you want to say something negative about it, then you don't get paid... they're not stopping you from saying negative things about their products, they're just not paying you to do it.
I couldn't disagree more. and the same may be true of the FCC, which as Arstechnica points out, requires full disclosure when there's "a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product that might materially affect the weight or credibility of the endorsement."
> "they're not stopping you from saying negative things about their products, they're just not paying you to do it."
They're paying people to drown out your voice.
I'd rather not have to read through a ton of whitewashing sockpuppets when considering purchases, and neither should you. Just because you like this one product does not mean you should condone the behavior.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Does not really surprise me. They are not the only ones doing it im sure ;) GAME BEEF
And other companies pay people to write bad press about competitors.... the shit all goes around.
I have to say there is a lot more negative information about products because people are simply misinformed or don't understand it.
Whats the saying if someone hates something they will tell 10 people if someone likes something they will tell 2 people.
Well they didn't pay me
