    Exclamation FAKE E2 review online - don't fall for this

    I don't usually post in this area, but I just wanted to alert everybody to something...

    I occasionally visit the website www.somethingawful.com

    It's usually ok, kind of witty.

    BUT, they have a new campaign going on -"TruthMedia". What they do is write a review on something that has very, ahem, enthusiastic and loyal fans, and post it as a real review.

    It has errors that are intentionally introduced - in order to **** off the fans. Their entire goal is to accumulate flame mail from fans, then they post the mail later, saying the fans look stupid.

    I know some people here are very passionate about SW, (I am) to the point of writing a rebuttal about a "wrong" review (I would not).

    I just wanted to let you all know that this is up, and to NOT respond to it, because it is fake, and because they are just baiting us, trying to get a reaction.

    Here's the link to the review:

    Here's the link to the home page where they say that it's a bogus review, and to tell SW fans about it to get a reaction:

    Isn't this like saying, "Damn, this water's hot! Touch it and see for yourself" or "Now kids, don't do this, but here's a site that tells you how to make a bomb. Don't visit it."

    Just havin' fun. Thanks for the heads up. It'll be fun to see how many people fall for it. Thanks!

    That "review" was sooo over-the-top I don't think many will. They should have been more subtle and less outrageous (Ahmed Best as a negro with designs on a white woman?!) to give a more believeable critique.

    Bib---darn you! I was actually going to post a link without a disclaimer

    It's all in good fun. I love that site.

    And all of their TruthMedia reviews are equally over-the-top. They just posted the first collection of hate mail from their review for Radiohead's Amnesiac CD. It does indeed work, thankfully. Funny stuff.

    But ruined for this board now

    I wish someone would have posted this as an actual review instead of a disclaimer. It would have been funny to see who takes themselves too seriously on this board
