    Hi WordPress.org

    I wrote a review for Acymailing.
    It is deleted a while later.
    So i wrote it again and again deleted.

    Why?
    Do i say something that is against any rules?
    Or can’t i mention Joomla in the review 😛
    If you delete a review it is nice if you at-least tell the person it is deleted and why. So i can change my review maybe a bit so you do not delete it.
    Just deleting it is kinda frustrating 😉

    The first version you wrote was caught by the spam filter and frankly, read like ad-copy from the plugin author. And yes, that looks like marketing spam. 😉

    That sets off distant warnings and the first review was archived. The one you submitted today was permitted and you can see the review you left.

    Serious question, do you have anything to do with that plugin aside from being a user?

    Hi Jan,

    Nope that is not my review.
    Now i am not the first anymore… 🙂

    Mine is still not there so if you can fix it that would be great!

    Oh and you ask if i have anything more to do with them:

    I am a dutch webdeveloper and use there product on 40 website’s.
    So i work allot with them and already for 8 years.
    And because i am happy with there support, and they added a couple features i asked to the new Acymailing 6 version I though I let people know how i use the plugin for myself and that they are good in support.

    I have absolutely nothing todo with there business.
    I do not earn any penny if they sell anything.
    I do not speak there language 😀

    The only benefit i maybe could have by there business selling is that if they get more popular on WorPress my benifits would be that they will become a better plugin.

    If there is anything you do not like in my review let me know and i can change it.

    If you could find it in the Archive and publish that would be great.
    Or if you want i can add it again.

    Hello there,

    I’m Alexandre from the Acyba Team.
    Just a quick message to confirm Joris is not part of the team at all.. Even if I would be happy to meet him one day! 😉

    So I would be glad if you could bring back the review as his review is archived and can’t be seen by users 🙁

    I’ve restored the review, but to be fair, that TOTALLY looks like something someone wrote as ad-copy.

    We have a lot of common buzzwords and writing patterns we look for when identifying things as ‘professionally written.’ Just like your teachers knew when you plagiarized, get enough practice and weird reviews will cause you to flag them too.

    There are a lot of red-flags in the way that was written, making it look like something the company wrote and asked a user to post.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately I can’t provide with any proof to show you that we didn’t ask for this review 🙁

    Joris supported us a lot in the past weeks on the Alpha and beta version.
    He gave us a lot of feedbacks and advices as he was super hyped by the release on WordPress. I can even forward you the mail history if needed as I want to make sure there is no problem about this review 😉

    Thanks for restoring it!

    I thank you very much.

    I would never write a review for plugin developer if they quote it for me. I rely allot on reviews.
    So happy you are screening all of them and mine 🙂
