TA's Latest e_mail

Just had an e_mail form TA that made me smile this Friday morning

_______________________

100 million reviews and opinions

Congratulations!

flipflop_man, you're among the top 1% most-read reviewers of all time!

______________________________

WOW and then it goes on to ask for more reviews

As they have no way of actually measuring who has read an individual review how can they make this statement and I would like to see the underlying data to back it up

Yeh, we were discussing this yesterday "elsewhere" - i had one too, it's just a marketing email to encourage people to submit more reviews that's all - :)

Out of interest from the last e_mail you had about the number who had read your reviews can you remember the number they quoted???

Mine was

"Congratulations on 38 reviews and 136,756 readers"

as I still have a copy of it in the TA Inbox

I just got that email this morning. There seems to be quite a lot of us in the top 1%!

we were really chuffed when we got our "top 2%" e mail, only to discover one of our friends had also had one & she's never even reviewed! Massive black mark TA - it will acually put us off reviewing in future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TA claims to have 44 million members so being in the top 1% is not a very exclusive club.

We all feel for you, CB.

I've started clicking on your reviews to try to boost your count.

But it would help if you could see your way clear to writing a few more. 9 ain't many. :(

Just saying ....
