    Maybe the reviewer wanted some undeserved attention.
    Formula:
    1. find a story/ podcast/ book/ writer/ whatever with a growing loyal cult following
    2. trash or criticize said story in "review"
    3. Use afore mentioned mediocre "review" to garner hits of your name online and gain notoriety

    I have never thought about it before now but it seems viable.
    Is it? I'm really asking. This is most definitely NOT my area of expertise.
    I guess it could back fire and make you look foolish if the subject of the review takes off. Which is something that is already happening here.

    Would be interested in seeing what the reviewer finds good.
    Probably a case like the art house film people that review something like Harry Potter, of course you won't like it.

    Not everyone has to like this, that is their opinion, someone has to die first in the ZA.

    I guess it makes them think to much. If they don't like to think there's a lot of stuff on tv.

    How do you "over write" something?

    Once it's written, it's written. Does he mean the constantly writing words on top of one another? I'm confused

    It's like an audio version of a game of Scrabble Upwords.

    But Zune sure can 'cause Zune contains its own awesomeness and makes iTunes sad.

    Oh that review is meh. I used to review books way back in the day, and I spent days putting together 500-750 words, as well as reading the entire book first then referring back to it. This reviewer clearly hasn't listened to much and is worth as much consideration as the effort he put into his review, which is barely any.

    I don't think WA is perfect, what is? But it's the best out there by a mile.
