- In 2001 my wife ignored abundant bad reviews and we have been suffering with a big-buck Dacor 'pro-style' gas range ever since. It's a beautiful piece of shit. So is the top-of-the-line GE refrigerator bought at the same time.
- I almost always check reviews for books and other items before ordering from Amazon. I have avoided several stinkers that I would have bought without researching.
- I studied comments about the Honda Crosstour before visiting dealers three years ago. (The car is great.)
I'm pleased that there are more than 25,000 Google links and 4,000 Bing links to my own Silver Sands Books. The links are apparently all positive except for one false personal attack by a crackpot. To have it removed I have to win a lawsuit against Google (owner of Blogger).
