I don't think it's exactly an "abuse", but if one doesn't like prog why wastes his/her time by rating prog artists?
Most of all, if 90%of the ratings is 1-star, do you know anybody purchasing or listening to hundreds of albums he/she doesn't like?

I've been insulted by the best and Peter Angus (probably stole his name from Henry Cow and thinks he's clever) is not even good at insulting.  Stuff like that just goes in one ear and out the other.  Or in one eye and out the other . . . or something.  Anyway, what was I talking about?

just keep reviewing Clannad albums and I'll defend you to the heavens, or whatever the expression is  Tongue

Could any psychiatrists in the arena tell me why someone would want to join a site, only to get themselves banned immediately?

Tcat, your reviews are not better than other you criticize. Youíre so obvious when you write, when I read a review from you, I skip it quickly. Study music and then youíll be able to speak.

This web practices censorship. Thereíre reviews that are removed for some reason. There are bands overrated for some interest, such as Cheetoís. Dark side of the moon is a masterpiece and not any of those albums that juxtapose ideas and cliches on and on. If donít want to lose credibility, the reviewers have to be more rigorous and not giving trades away to anyone.

These two member review links need to be looked at.  There is definitely something suspicious going on here considering that the reviewers use the same review for several different albums. 
 
 
 
Duplicated entries for manipulate. All kicked out.

Right now there seems to be some fake reviews of both Jon Anderson and Alan Parsons on the front page. It looks like someone is just copying and pasting the same thing for these reviews and changing a few words to fit the reviews. There is possibly some kind of ulterior motive here but I'm not sure. Anyway, I just wanted to point it out. 

It looks like it was just addressed but I want to say that I noticed it also.
When you list all the qualities that you despise and you realize you're describing yourself.

Review by FanofProg022 with the review numbers:#2200623, #2200622 and #2200611 all have the same write up though they are for three different albums, two by Alan Parsons and one by Jon Anderson.
Then it is immediately followed by another review for two of the same albums by Andy011 who again duplicates the write up, review numbers: #2200604 and #2200600. Is this permitted? If so, doesn't it rather spoil the purpose of the site?
