ADMIN - Constructive Feedback vs. Negative Reviews

Hey guys,

As you know, the first of the 2008 MEFA reviews are visible on our website and have been for the past several weeks. If you're like me, you've probably been checking obsessively at least every few days to see if you've had any new reviews. It can be great fun. :-)

However, there's an issue that unfortunately comes up every now and then in connection with reviews, and I'd like to discuss that. How should reviewers write a review when they want to do something more than just praise the author; and how should authors react to such reviews?

Some helpful FAQs:
--- Can I be critical in my reviews?
--- Can an offensive review be removed?

Feel free to discuss this general issue here; if you'd like to discuss any specific reviews please email mefasupport(.at.)mefawards(.dot.)net.
