Is there a rule or something, that all negative reviews, however well-founded and informative, are going to be deleted when the Immortals of the MUD complain?

Yet repetitive positive reviews that say nothing more than what can be found on the information page stay?

I thought the whole purpose of having the review system was to hear both positives and negatives about a MUD, so the players can make an informed decision?

Am I misinformed to think that?

In case you are having difficulty writing reviews that don't get deleted, I
have assembled this easy form so you too can write a really useful review
for your mud!

************************************************** *************
I have been playing <insert MU* name here> for <number> years. It is the
best MU* of all the many MU*s I have played. It is a small/medium/large
(circle one) MU* with around <number> of players on at a time.

One of the best things about <MU* name> is <feature>. I like it because
<describe feature>. You can also <another feature>, <yet another
feature>, or even <a seldom-used feature> if you want! All these make
<mu* name> the best game on the net!

The PK system is exactly the way I want it because it has restrictions/
limited restrictions/no restrictions (circle one). RP is perfect and way
more complex than other MU*s. Everything is perfect! The staff are great;
the players are wonderful. It's just all just so perfect, perfect, perfect and
I have nothing bad to say about <MU* name> whatsoever!

So give <MU* name> a try. My char's name is <name of character>.
Mention this review and I'll give you some cool stuff to bribe you into
staying!

Or you could post something like this:

<insert name of mud> cool? Bah! It sucks! Every imm on it cheats and sucks! All the players who play are illiterate jerks who can't mud their way out of a paper bag!

And <insert name of feature> that they SAY they have? It sucks! They are big liars! And their head Imm smells! They should all be set on fire because they suck so much!

I'm being unbiased here, because I just want to warn everyone that <name of MUD> really is horrible and you should stay far away from it! Despite the fact that I was caught cheating several times on there and flamed a bunch of people and caused a bunch of problems before finally being kicked off the game, this is still my unbiased viewpoint and should be taken as is, and I have no vendetta against them because I am sixteen years old and have no self control!

Doesn't everyone agree with me that <name of MUD> should just die? Die, die, die!

Is it wrong that I found Vedics' post funnier than the Willy Wonka thread ?

Those are all great and all,

but how about allowing the players to submit some reviews that are actually USEFUL to prospective players, without deleting them, just because the immortals of the mud like to get their panties in a bunch?
