If you have an unsatisfactory stay in an Airbnb property and leave a review that reflects your experience, your name is attached to your negative review forever. This might dissuade you from being honest, because then future hosts who see your negative reviews might be reluctant to rent to you, fearing you’ll give them a bad review, too.
If you’re an Airbnb user, just think about it: When was the last time you checked out a property you might want to rent and actually saw a bad review? The site has barely any — and it’s just not possible that every property could be as good as the reviews make them seem.
Subsitute the word ‘record’ for the word ‘property’.
I don’t hand out mediocre reviews because it’s fun (well, I try to make the mediocre reviews entertaining), but the music review system is broken and corrupt, worse than anything Airbnb has going.
‘It’s just not possible that every record could be as good as the reviews make them seem.’
Sing it, man, sing it out loud.
