Default Restaurant "shilling"

Folk who frequent foodie websites will be well aware of the restaurant "shill" - the person who is connected with a place but who posts a review pretending to be an ordinary punter.

Good websites spot this and delete the post and it's reassuring to see our moderator here is also "on the ball". It gives me added confidence that the good review I read here is someone's genuine opinion.

Spot the shill......person's first post is a rave review of somewhere rarely tipped.....post reflects the wording of the restaurant's website.....post heavily touts a "special offer". You get the drift.

Thanks.

John

Indeed. And it's the nature of the first post that usually gives the game away.
