Do Many Positives Make a Negative (Review)?

Below Read More
by Jesse Mecham

Oh my.

YNAB Pro on Amazon has received many, many favorable reviews (thanks to everyone that’s written one!). However, apparently, too many positive reviews are a bad thing. From one reviewer:

Don’t be mislead by the lengthy positive reviews for this product, they appear to be fake.


One commenter further solidified this rock-solid assumption:

Awefully suspicious how there are so many five star reviews on this product. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another product on Amazon (esp software) rated so high. Thanks for this post; this makes me nervous and I am steering clear of this product.

Alas. I suppose too many positives do make a negative… if you’d like to leave a review, be my guest. But please make it real 😉
