You are right Jimmy, but I still think it useful to have positive feedback for purely selfish reasons: it enables me to chose from a much wider range of WGs, including some of the best-reviewed ones who might not see me if I had no feedback.
The posts from Dani and Strawberry make it very clear how much bollocks they get in their inbox every day, you can hardly blame them for requiring feedback in order to assist them in weeding out these idiots.
Ah but you see it's not quite as simple as feedback.
Unfortunately there are men out there who have a list of positive feedbacks as long as your arm, yet most ladies would rather not see them. Just as you punters feel under pressure not to leave negatives, and sometimes even to leave false positives, some punters are very clever and make an SP feel she has to leave good feedback to keep the peace, or so he'll reciprocate.............sometimes they'll see (put up with(where's the line through button?)) them a couple of times because they are quiet or he's a smarmy boundary pusher who makes you feel you are in the wrong................also some punters can be great with one SP, a nightmare with the next.
Whilst I do bear positive feedback in mind I treat every new client the same, I see how he behaves in communications and make up my own mind.
I will also look at the sort of questions he asks, see how long he's been a member, sometimes I might even contact someone he's seen.
When someone contacts me telling me how wonderful their feedback is, often hinting that they want me to circumvent my booking requirements, or give them preferential treatment, first thing I'll say is "That's nice, I'll bear it in mind and it is reassuring however I'll reserve judgment until we meet".
