The perils of being a writer means that sooner or later, you’re asked to write reviews for something.
Now I don’t try much for gigs here, I use this site mostly for buying gigs, but I do have an account on another site, where I write under a pseudonym (So that clients don’t trace my accounts on other freelancing sites, some can be weird…) . I recently came across an absolutely terrible product that I sold about 10 reviews for.
Now, those reviews are still there, but there are 4-5 reviews about how someone bought it after reading my review, and was utterly disappointed. One of them said they spent a fair portion of their wage on it.
Which really brings me to the morality of the thing. I didn’t know the item was THAT awful when I wrote the review, yet, shouldn’t I have checked? So I was wondering, what do you guys think is the moral position on this.
P.S: Not on Fiverr, I think Fiverr doesn’t allow selling product reviews anyway, so thought I’d clarify that. Was just a bit affected by what I saw.
