I never understood why they let people post reviews that don't have a verified purchase of the item through Amazon. That seems like it would curtail a large chunk of the fake reviews.

It'd also lead to a LOT fewer legit reviews. I've posted reviews for items I've bought elsewhere but loved/hated enough to tell others about it. My computer case, for example. I fucking LOVE it, and posted reviews everywhere I could. It's the first case that's so goddamn pretty that half the components in it were purchased to be color-complimentary. The only holdout is the motherboard, and I REALLY don't want the hassle of replacing that just for a slight color difference (dark brown board VS the actual black of a Krait). It's an NZXT S340 White if you were curious.

But at the same time, it WOULD cut down on bullshit reviews pretty sharply. There's still Amazon Vine, which sends lucky bastards free stuff that they review. It's not QUITE "buying" reviews, but people in the program may give higher ratings that they would have if they'd had to pay for it.

Also it's not a guaranteed legit review even if there is an order associated with it. As I understand it, on some sites people would arrange for the fake reviews and indicate who would be ordering it and that instead of sending the product they should just send an empty envelope or something they can put the shipping label on, circumventing the 'verified owner' limitation.
