I think there are several factors that have hampered reviews in the east region and elsewhere.
There are loads of punters who are happy to lurkeech and get the benefit of contributions made by other members. To an extent they are harmless, just selfish. Some may not have confidence to contribute at all or may have issues with privacy and security. Some may just be wary of the generic forum dynamic, the aggressors, trolls etc. Some may be just dipping their toe into the hobby and may go on to become useful members when they have something beneficial to say.
The ones that piss on my chips are the ones that have limited posts that suddenly chirp into a review thread and announce either what a great or shite time they had with a wg. Please for the love of god review her without hindsight. You will either gift another punter a great time, or save them hard earned money and the dark teatime of the soul.
Worst of all are the posters who never , ever review but keep posting. They are of as much use as an arsehole on an elbow. They should stop being voyeur wankers and just fuck off.
First time posters might be wary but need to be aware that its been a fairly turbulent 6 months on here. Lots of members with big numbers have been banned what with White Knight Wars, Fluffy Fiascos, Touting Tantrums etc. On the east section several went for touting their own parties, multiple accounts (some even talking to themselves) and fucking wierdos like da do ron ron da do ron ron. People are going to have one eye on where posters are coming from because of this. We know that these people will try to get back in, or maybe already are. Admin is not omnipresent and omniscient after all. How he does what he does astonishes me.
Common sense should tell new posters not to be too scared if they are sensible. If a first post is a strong positive for a wg, it might be seen as touting. Similarly a strong negative could be viewed as a rival putting the boot in. So make some sensible posts, don't beg for feedback if you haven't reviewed or given any, for me (and its just me), don't make your first post a review or the death nell, a bunk in saying "when I saw her....".
Besides that, the eastern region is really odd geographically. Places north of me are in the south east region. London region is actually closer and the wg's are mostly better and cheaper. Herts based punters (like me) are not going to traipse to Ipswich, Norwich, Colchester, Chelmsford, Basildon etc. I suspect the feeling is mutual! Well, not unless they squirt champagne.
With the vagaries of the M25, M11, A11, A12 etc, its impossible to plan a punt and make it on time unless you are away on business. As Hertsgent said, that is why some of our reviews are out of region.
Next reason for me is paucity of options in Herts for me. Did a quick search earlier on AW and depressed myself. 5 mile search of my location 18-39 (which really means 18-45),£120-£140 an hour gave up 49 results, promising. Then added French kissing and owo, got 6 back. 2 had no feedback, one was a aldi extras girl , one a rotten old renound cunt. The 2 left were Girlfriend Jenny (no surprise) and a semi-tourer with 3 threads on here but no reviews. She may be worth a TOFTT, to cheer me up after the last disaster. So I concur with the previous poster that there doesn't seem to be much talent around at the moment. This has been the case for a while, so when close to home have had massages instead.
