As to reviews.
I only post 5/5 star reviews in pathways unless its for a Rite Publishing product (I swear I posted a 4/5 star review of ours once but I could be wrong). It would be improper of me (or at least have the appearance of impropriety) to post a lesser review of another companies product. I also do my best to offer balance one review for Rite Pub one for someone else, this limits me from being a total shill.
Finally there is my simple feeling that I want Pathways to recommend products to purchase. I want to be positive. If its reviewed in pathways its because its the best product that from the last 30 days.
In that case would it not make more sense to scrap the star system if it is pointless anyway and instead of calling it a review section, call it a recommended products section.
