spritzer Posted April 22, 2017 Report Share Posted April 22, 2017 Every now and then I receive emails where people want free review samples or some stupid shit like that. Now then this gem showed up today: Quote Hey! So I was wondering.. I write reviews read by thousands of people on headfi and I usually cross post to other audio forums too. Not to brag too much but I think I have a gifted writing style and able to transmit what I hear into a well written review and I would love to buy your newest headphone amp Carbon CC special edition and write a full length review on it! Here is an example of one of my many reviews:http://www.head-fi.org/products/audeze-lcd4/reviews/16525 In exchange for a complete and published review (likely front page of headfi and other forums), would a discount of 45% be doable for my amplifier? I was thinking a complete review as well as publicity from the many meets and conventions I attend with my gear would be worth it for you guys to sell to me for that discounted price. Not to mention I'm very active socially in the community so I'd be telling many people about it first hand. (Of course keeping the discount just between us) What do you think? Thanks, Dillan I just like the blatant offer to offer promotion and clearly a glowing review for a measly 45% discount... My reply is below... Quote Let’s just be crystal clear here, what you want is for me to pay you for “exposure”. That is called shilling and I find it the lowest possible form of humanity. People might read your drivel and think you know anything but in reality you are just a paid mouthpiece who can’t even get a bloody link to work. So what I think is that you should fuck off to the likes of Cavalli or Woo who need to pay shills like you pump their garbage products. Also, just because it is a lovely Saturday, I’m going to post this for the entire community to see. I think people have a right to know what your “reviews” are really about. So basically, fuck off and never contact me again. Cheers, Birgir Kevin told me not to be too harsh... I think it went ok. 25 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
