men take the word of other men about providers even if the men speaking about said providers has never seen the woman, talked to her on the phone, had a negative experience with her except on a board, or any other contact?
Let's not forget that the provider in question most likely has excellent reviews and no one that has actually ever seen her would ever talk about her the way these men do (who have never seen her).
One last thing: the people who are talking are generally the same kind of people; always on the board; never have anything positive to say; and generally speak to women who respond to anything they post disrespectfully.
You really do listen to these men about women they have never met? Really? That doesn't seem logical.
I'd also like to point out that I have been told of conversations between men who have talked about women who have posted to their threads and shared information that wasn't even in the same ballpark as legitimate. And I don't mean one or two facts wrong, I mean someone made so many things up that the thread read like complete fiction (and it wasn't me, it was someone I knew and I definitely had the facts of the situation).
So, I would say why would you listen to people who obviously have a bias against a person (they've NEVER seen her or had any kind of contact with her, but she upset them in some way) instead of going by factual reviews that were written by unbiased people? Just curious.
