1. CUSTOMER REVIEWS !!!
 Michael Gebara   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
I have become nearly paralyzed when it comes to decisions about purchasing goods and services. Past transactions have, in some instances, left me pleasantly surprised and in others, badly burnt. So, thanks to the wonderful age we are in, I turn to the internet and reviews/evaluations/opinions to try and guide my decisions. This has taken me from bad to worse.

It is amazing how you can log into a site for a product (or service), click on customer reviews and see the extreme opinions that are there. I mean so extreme that a product may have 20 customer reviews, 10 will be 4 and 5 stars, 10 will be 1 and 2 stars and none will be the expected middle ground of 3 stars. 10 people will declare the product the greatest thing on the market, 10 will condemn it as the worst. And the condemnation or adulation are often for the same feature or specific attribute.

Now sit there and make a decision on what to buy!..I have spent a chunk of time looking for tires that are for my needs..The specifics are unnecessary. In two months of reading about the 20 or so different tires that match my price range, needs, applicability, etc., I am not so much as one inch (25,4 mm for you young'ens) closer.

Now this e-mail is far more venting than offering solutions. And I do apologize, but wow!! I would absolutely love to log into a site for tires, click on the handful that meet my needs, click on the reviews and see a definitive pattern of reviews that narrows me down to the 1, 2 or 3 choices that I can go with. Or conversely offers a consistent enough message that if the product fails, it does so "as expected. or as warned about".

Please write as many reviews as you can about the products and services you get. Offer impartial, analytical analysis. 10 people giving 5 stars, 10 people giving 1 star. Means an average of 3 stars and polar opposite opinions. This serves no purpose. 200 people rating a product 2,3 or 4 stars and offering good analysis eventually produces a reliable trend.

The uOttawa Nordiq ski team is off to a great start of the school year. From a student-run club last year, input and help from the Ottawa-Gatineau ski community has helped put a structured cross country ski program in place. Ontario has a strong University racing circuit with many Varsity-level teams, and our goal is to put a Gee-Gees team on this list! Here's an update about what we've been doing since the start of the school year: https://sites.google.com/view/uottawanordiq/news/uottawa-nordiq-is-underway
