Quoted from irobot:
But on the other hand, if people are going to play cheerleader for the seller, then I think it's appropriate to balance it out with some commentary.
I agreed with you 100% until you hit this point; there wasn’t any “cheerleading” going on. The praise for the seller’s reliability (absolutely due, FWIW) is absolutely helpful to buyers. “Cheerleading” for the seller would be a negative requiring countermeasures IF the comments were misleading. They were not. While a TBL hasn’t sold for $20k, a number HAVE changed hands at $15k.
