Response to Stuart G (Reply #3)

4. the thing that tips it for me is when I noticed

sequentially dated reviews.....4-5 good reviews on Marc 4, and 4-5 good reviews on March 5, and March 6, etc.
So I checked the names of the reviewers and the majority of them just happened to have written lots of reviews at one time.
the extra kicker was one reviewer who wrote very short one sentence reviews, for a lot of products.

It was pretty obvious, because when you find a real reviewer, that is a person who buys 1-2 items at a time, then it might be weeks before they write a review again.
