    Has anyone noticed that all of the reviews for the STK phone have vanished? Could it be because that 12 of the 14 reviews were all only one star?

    I'm sure it's simply someone's mistake at IW!!!

    Poo Poo is shilling a big Dormeo sponge. He’s being assisted by Baby Jane’s alpha male sidekick Luxurious Luxury Deluxe, Creepy Crawley. Poo Poo says : -

    ‘I love The Jeremy Kyle Show but the way they go at eachother I’m sure they’re deprived of sleep’

    Not as much as Poo Poo is deprived of talent.

    Meanwhile Ellie May Clampett and the atrocious Suzy are shilling Faux Silk Curtains. They’re just talking over eachother, vying for the camera.

    I’m thinking they loathe eachother

    Howard brought his own unique fecal-focused marketing skills to bag selling yesterday.

    Speaking of the generous storage capacity of a particular ladies bag, he mentioned how it would be possible to store a used doggy poo bag in one of its compartments. I know it takes all sorts, but can there really be ladies out there who would be swayed by the dog poo storage of a handbag???!

    That’s surprising Momma because Jukebox Janice seemed to think that those phones were pretty amazing.

    Here’s a review on Trustpilot, dated 18/11/17, for a mobile phone purchase from Ideal World : -

    ‘I purchased a new phone from this company. On arrival the phone was simply not up to coping with what I expected. Ideal World had not technically lied but had definitely over-sold the product in their highly gimmicky TV presentation. There was only just enough memory to hold the Android system (4GB) let alone deal with all the photos videos streaming etc they demonstrated. I sent the phone back using their collection point in Asda stating my dissatisfaction and telling them clearly that they had MIS-SOLD the product. Their position was that as they had not said anything untruthful the product was not defective and therefore they were charging me for the return delivery even from their own collection point! I will never use IDEAL WORLD again!’

    Ideal World now has a Trust Rating of just 0.7 out of 10 and is ranked 1720th out of the 1722 companies reviewed in their category of retailer, which is ‘Clothes & Fashion’.

    Oh dear

    I suspect their justification for removing the STK phone reviews, is that a fair few of them mentioned that you couldn't change the ringtone. Manice made a point on one of the shows to show how to change the ringtone.

    Not saying they are in the right if that is why they were taken down, but wouldn't be surprised if that was the reasoning.

    Don't knock it, it works for me as a selling point. I'd buy it and I haven't even got a dog! I can honestly say when I have been buying handbags in TK Maxx I have never considered storing dog poo in it... as you say, only on Planet Howard!

    Those reviews make for grim reading. There's even a comment by a disgruntled ex employee, complaining about the toxic atmosphere at Ideal world. Given the questionable ethics of those who are charged with selling the merchandise, it would not be surprising if a dog eat dog ethos was prevalent throughout the company.

    I think we would all agree that a reviewer is more likely to post a comment following a poor experience, on the other hand they have received the lowest possible rating for 85% of their 300 reviews which suggests a pattern.

    But, to be ranked 1,721st of the 1,723 companies in their particular retail sector is particularly worrying.

    And an overall trust rating of just 0.7 out of 10 doesn’t give you confidence does it?
