It actually wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if those 5 star reviews came from the shop's owner.

It's China, after all.
It was one example out of several others. I'm poking at one slice of the demographic, but in general get annoyed by people who give high overall ratings for one small detail that should be taken for granted. A simple checklist would be:
1) Did it arrive? If yes, move on. If no, low rating.
2) Was the order/item damaged in transport? If no, move on. If yes, slightly deduct score based on damage, keeping in mind the end carrier may be more responsible than the seller.
3a) Does the item require any form of testing? If no, skip to point 4, If yes, move on.
3b) Does the item work as intended (clothes the size advertised, electronics functional, posters hanging right etc)? If yes, give score based on satisfaction. If no, low rating.
4) Summarize score for all above. Be fair, but be precise.
5) Make sure you reviewed according to steps 1-4 and not just step 1.

Yeah might be the link from imgur or whatever it is I used doesn't work anymore. You're not missing out on anything though.

Ooh, dammit! I hate when s*** like that happens!

Even worse, it's ANNOYING AS HELL when my computer boots me out of my game - doesn't crash it - and goes to desktop for no f***ing reason! I suspect it's something with the video drivers, but the video device I use, as far as I know, is no longer supported. So I'm basically getting kicked out of my game because my PC is saying "YOU MUST UPDATE THE VIDEO DRIVERS NOWWWWWW!!!" Worse than that, some of my games screw up when that happens. IRRITATING as f***.

Great. Just f***ing great. F***ing god **** it.

Ceiling in the living room caved in, scared the living s*** out of me. Now I have a gaping hole in the ceiling, and if it rains again, this house is gonna flood. And this wouldn't have happened had my procrastinating, equine-obsessed, asinine, unrealistic-dreams mother went and fixed the roof WHEN SHE F***ING SAID SHE WOULD! And now, with this kind of damage, we're gonna be even MORE worse off than before! She never does anything until it's too late, damage done! Never acts when it can make a difference! God knows when she's gonna get around to fixing this s***!

EDIT: Ceiling collapsed AGAIN! Now the hole is even bigger, and while I was cleaning up the mess, cutting down the hanging pieces, one piece dropped and took me with it, and I fell off the step stool and hurt myself.

SECOND EDIT: Must have hurt myself worse than I thought. Started with just my knee, now it's my whole left leg. Difficult to stand, let alone walk.
