Yes, I've just been reading on another thread about the way the system works WRT reviews and links. Apologies, I wasn't up to speed.
Indeed. A review should give enough info to allow another punter to contact her IMHO or, in the case of brothels, FKKs, o/s RLDs and the like, enough info for another punter to locate the sort of punt referred to.
I do think self-vigilance is the way to go rather than having automated censorship of nonentity 'reviews.'
If someone posts a 'review' that isn't a review, it's easy enough for someone else to report it and have it moved to the discussion area.
Sometimes a newbie posts a review of an AW prossie but adds "don't know how to post a link", which is a bit dumb but easy enough corrected (and usually is, by another poster).
The old crapshit prossie-run cuntsite (that UKP was invented to replace) made it so hard to post a review and even if you fulfilled the requirements it could get deleted for some reason by a mod (ie a prossie didn't like it). UKP is a low-moderation site and I hope it stays that way.
One aspect that concerns me is when a review turns into a debate!
+1 annoying as fuck. Reviews should be rubbished by other posters if they are clearly whiteknight fluffyknob shite, not for reasons of "eeew I think you're being unfair to the laydee"
The best thing is to have as many reviews as possible of each prossie, then take your pick!
