I know that this is the wrong forum but I have seen that the 'invited' reviews have made a similar appearance on the Create and Craft pages on Trust Pilot. Seems to me that C&C don't really need it. When they are criticised it seems that it is mostly about delays in dispatch or refunds due to insufficient stock rather than anything that we are used to on IW.Thanks for that, didn't realise the page had a link to graphs etc. It's very interesting to see how it's only 4 & 5 star manual invited reviews that have risen so sharply in August. It's pretty obvious that it's only hand picked customers that are being manually invited to review, which kinda defeats the whole point of the review process.
Although there sudden increase in positive reviews hasn't made too much of a difference to their overall score, they only gone up .1, from 1.6 to 1.7 in the last month.
I had a look, they are so obviously fake and completely over the top. Wouldn't fool me for a minute!I see there are another load of invited reviews on trustpilot to try and pump up the rating, but a quick search came up with idealworld paying for extra trustpilot features like asking certain customers to leave reviews but it is manually done so they obviously only ask for 4/5 stars the cheating buggers.
There's a well used selly telly / industry algorithm for this.Where do they get the RRPs from
This is part of the problem. Because the (high) majority of the viewing public don't know about watches in-depth, they can … and do … spout any old guff.The Watch expert on the Infinity "Swiss" watches- "Sellita chronograph movements, Swiss Sellita Quartz chronograph"
Really, I think somebody should tell Sellita they are making quartz movements, because I don't think they know that.
Hawker Hurricane, vertical take-off WTF

On a flippant note, I love it when Peter says either CCP or CCCCP instead of the actual name!!!
Cheeky Chappie, I remember on Bid TV some years back Mike Mason was selling something like the Beldray. He said that anybody who used an old fashioned mop and bucket was smearing filth and bacteria over the floor endangering young children. My elderly mum was so insensed by this she would have punched him from here to next Saturday had he been in the same room!I hopped on just now and they're doing the Beldray floor cleaner. I noticed the mop & bucket prop. Didn't bother to keep watching but no doubt they'll be doing the usual thing of saying how the water stinks and will be using a very old dirty mop head. Then they'll half-heartedly squeeze the water out to ensure maximum dirty water is left on the floor. Cause that's what the majority of people do that still use a mop & bucket. They never replace or clean the mop head and they just keep it in the same dirty water week in week out. And they never bother to squeeze it out properly.
I'm not saying the Beldray isn't a better solution than a traditional mop & bucket, it very possibly is. But don't insult our intelligence by suggesting everyone uses stinking mop heads and filthy dirty water. I used to clean a fish & chip shop tiled floor with a mop & bucket many moons ago and let me assure you, it did the job very well … and the mop head never stunk!!!
I started shouting again at the telly during last nights extravaganza, so much so, I turned over with 20 mins to go, couldn't watch any more. So, a bottle chilling in the fridge ready to keep me calm for the "Vostoks"
