I agree... I don't buy anything online without reading reviews.
I've obviously made exceptions on here, however I would love for people to post more reviews on here in general. I try to write at least a little something about every item I buy that I like. Let people know that this is a solid buy.
I do get the concern for shilling on here, however I think people that aren't genuine and are shilling will quickly be taken to task by the users of LB. That's what makes this place special, it's the users and how the self police.
