Fewer Reviews?

20 posts in this topic

Helo everyone.

 

Is it me or are there less reviews about these days o this and the 'other' well known site.

 

Is this a sign of the hardened economic times (and so escorts are simply not as busy) or are guys less inclined to write them?

 

It would be nice to hear peoples thoughts.

 

Cheers

It isn't just the fact that adultwork is around.

 

You also have other message boards in operation whose members would have previously posted reports to PN, but who now prefer to leave reports to members on their local sites (although that won't prevent them from reading PN FRs, they will now take out info from the pool without putting anything back in).

Actually, I think the PN message boards have been a major reason, as well.  My own particular interests in Oriental (predominantly Thai), Ebony and Asian (predominantly Indian) WGs are nicely catered for here with special threads and very CURRENT information.  I also have gotten to know (electronically) many of the punters who share those interests and have learned which ones to 'trust' when it comes to specific impressions and info. 

 

One thing that would encourage and enhance my own use of PN would be an improvement in the PN search engine.  I live in London and punt throughout the M25 area in London, and an AW-like option for refining London searches by borough and by town/area would be invaluable. 

 

In the early days, I posted FRs on Oriental WGs on a rather frequent basis but I began losing heart when G started banning a number of my favourite agency sources (and favourites of a lot of other oriental fanciers - though our ranks have clearly swelled here during the past several years) for reasons that left him personally feeling comfortable but hardly reflected the views/experiences of many of his board-member audience.  To this day, probably the most successful and useful oriental agency in London - 007escorts - has had FRs on its WGs banned here for offenses allegedly committed back in the mists of time!  In the meantime, a succession of truly dubious oriental agencies have come and gone now, leaving a trail of useless FRs behind them here until they finally have been deleted.  It's G's board, I commend him for his pioneering efforts and for his determination to keep PN and the info on it as pure as possible, but he does manage to throw out the baby with the bath water from time to time.

It's hard to know how to answer without knowing which "other well known site" to which you refer. The first responding poster, KSG, appears to think it might be AW (though I am not sure!)? Since we are now allowed to mention AW by name then you may or may not have meant that.

Since there are still restrictions on mentioning AW profiles in FRs it's rather difficult to report on girls only available via AW. Since, like a lot of punters, for my own locality AW is the only real resource for locating a WG, that makes it hard to add a FR and be branded as a taker :( . Now I've left FRs on another well known (and national - not local area) punting site, I don't mean AW, where reviews of any girl are allowed with direct links.

 

So in short it's not the economic situation that's stopping me posting FRs here and from the plethora of reviews "over there" on said site, I don't think the market has dried up due to lack of disposable income. Sorry for being vague myself, but I don't really want to end up on pre-mod for mentioning competing punting sites.

It's okay to use the term 'Adultwork' on this message board, just not in the body of a FR or with any link to AW.  However, you are allowed to post the WG's phone number (after first getting her permission and forewarning her of potential timewasters/phonewankers that this may attract), especially if she already has listed it on her AW profile.  When you scan each batch of new FRs, you will note quite a few showing only a phone number to contact and it is reasonable to assume that a large percentage were sourced from AW.

So it is OK to give their AW name? I know it's not OK to give their ID number. If their AW name is fairly bland then being allowed to only say "Jennifer of London" with just a phone number and no link to the only place you could find out more about her services is too baffling to be worthwhile.

Why not tell her what you would like to do and ask HER what name she would like to use.  I recently encouraged an AW gal to use a different name because I thought the one she was using on AW sounded stupid.  She was okay with that so I asked her what name she would like me to use if I posted a FR here, and I used it.  She's an indie, she had used at least two other names on AW in her past, she is just trying to make a living and a rose by any other name ...............  Frankly, she is a terrific escort, her rates are reasonable and I wrote the FR as much for the benefit of punters here as I did to reward her for excellent service. 

 

I think G has loosened up quite on AW issues and, for the most part, I don't think he has anything against escorts who list there - he disapproves of AW ownership/management and their business practices and a lot of people around here would agree with him.  He doesn't want AW publicised or glorified here and I think his current stance is pretty fair to the two parties that really count - the service providers and the service seekers.

I can't imagine most AW girls changing their name to get a review on a different website! And if I use a different name that she suggests without her changing it on AW then that's fairly useless for punters looking for her likes list and rates etc if she's an AW only girl.

We all know AW is a scamming, scheming parasite on the industry, but hey - it's the number one way to find girls (at least in my area where there's a zero tolerance approach from the local authority to any establishments offering personal services - I suspect the head of the council is either a frustrated old man or just a dirty old man who frequently uses the services himself under an alias but hates himself for doing so). So it must be popular with punters and service providers and I'm glad we're no longer forced to deny it's existence. But we should be able to (a) easily recommend the good ones on there and (B) warn our fellow punters of the bad ones on there. Without being able to reliably do this (and I don't necessarily mean direct URL links, I mean profile names and ID numbers) then I can't leave a useful review so I just don't.

 

As per the OP's question, this was just my feeling as to why there may be fewer reviews.

You do manage to complicate things for yourself, Marky.  If you don't like the 'system' here or the AW 'system', don't use them - no need to torment yourself.  Any punter who is familiar with either website knows the strengths and weaknesses of each, so it boils down to how to make them work for him personally.  I am not holding my breath to learn what you think of WGs on whom I have written FRs, nor would I expect you to hold yours waiting for my weighty comments and recommendations on a WG.  I say what I have to say within the guidelines required by the website and you can take it or leave it - in any case, 'what's in a name'? 

 

I usually answer PMs from people who are confused/confounded by something I have written here.  We have no such option open to us on AW.

You seem to have entirely misunderstood me and I apologise if I have confused the situation by not mentioning the certain website (which is not AW) where I do regularly post reviews and enjoy reading other reviews of girls on AW, openly listed with their AW profile details, some of whom I have then gone on to see and others I have avoided as a result of a review. I don't want to get into trouble on here because I believe mentioning the site I am talking about on here is verboten or at least frowned upon.

 

I was honestly only answering the OP's point. I explained why I find it difficult to use the PN FR system (as either a poster or reader) here even though I posted a couple of reviews some time ago. I'm not "tormented" and I don't get your point about not being interested in each others' opinions on WGs we've seen. My comments were never about that.

 

As for 'What's in a name' - well the ability to identify someone of course!!

No problem, Marky.  I spend more time at my computer than I care to admit and I place less emphasis on FRs than most people here. I write them sparingly myself (for reasons that I have previously mentioned), usually only if the WG is really tops or if she is a complete iceberg, just waiting to be hit below the waterline.  Also, I don't have a set list of 'enjoys' (though I have a very specific list of 'do not enjoys' that I don't publicise) and am prepared to be opportunistic when I meet a WG for the first time - if it turns out to be something that SHE enjoys, I am game.  I may not go back but I try to make the most of this one meeting.  Granted that I am older than most punters and do not have serious concerns about 'rates' (other than trying to avoid being stupid), which means that I can afford to make mistakes.  But some of my worst mistakes have been made based on FRs written by punters who either have hyped them or simply have a completely different approach to punting that I do.  Even 'services offered' can vary from one punter to another - the WG may do one thing for you but not for me, and vv.  But I can remember when my time was limited, my wallet was thin and my needs were URGENT!  So PM me for details if you think that I may be able to help.

Um, again, I'm afraid I really don't understand what you're trying to say! Perhaps you are suggesting that fewer reviews are being posted in the FRs because a personalised review service via Private Messaging to/from you is a substitute for a field report system  :wacko:? Or only for punters on a tight budget while you are not? This is an entirely honest comment - I am absolutely and completely baffled by your reply!! Can anyone help me out here?  <_<

No, just that if you have difficulty figuring out anything mentioned in my FRs, just PM me will any questions and I will try to answer them.  I may view things from a different perspective that you do.  Or not - it was merely an offer.  Still baffled?

Sometimes people go to all the trouble to write what is an FR in all but name, but publish in a forum thread where valuable contributions can eventually get lost and buried.

 

Here's an example Zizzi

 

(Apologies to Bill if I've jumped too soon and there's an FR pending in the system)

Only as to how your replies match with my posts! Reading back, perhaps it was my use of the phrase "...I find it difficult to use the PN FR system (as either a poster or reader)...", so let me clarify...

 

(a) My difficulty with the PN FRs as a poster is that I am not allowed to refer to a girl's AW profile even if that is her only outlet, so I don't post any

(B) My difficulty with the PN FRs as a reader is that few, if any, of the girls in my area feature in FRs, primarily - I would say - due to (a)

 

I have posted PN FRs in the past. Two were published and later a third one I posted was rejected. I don't think a reason is given for rejection but I've not bothered since.

Understood, Marky.  My own recent FRs have all been done on AW girls but all I needed to do was secure their permission to use their mobile number on the FR as their sole contact info.  Punternet has been willing to accept my FRs on that basis and I make no reference to AW anywhere in the body of the FR, either.  And that's also why changing names in the one instance didn't bother me (or the WG), because I was not trying to link the two.  This board can be a good place to sort out some of these issues but, depending upon the actual question, a PM may even be better.  In short, I have modified my approach to writing FRs to suit each website.

Just a note on FR's for AW providers, every lady has a first name and phone number, so as long as money is exchanged a report can be filed. If reports are rejected the board software will tell you the reason, she may well have requested no reports.

Forum posts can contain profile names but no profile numbers or links please, but please include her area Sallyslap from Lower Prats bottom.

Having checked your personal website, I am a bit surprised as well.  However, many guys who post on this forum/message board aren't necessarily even punters, and I assume many punters who post FRs don't necessarily pay any attention to this forum/massage board, so the two don't necessarily correlate. 

 

I post FRs here occasionally and on AW eslightly more frequently (because I mainly see 'indies'), but I am most likely to do so if I have had an exceptionally good punt with a relatively new WG who clearly can use a bit of a boost in getting started.  I rarely have a really bad punt but if I DO have one so bad that I think other punters need to be warned off, I will post a FR her (won't even bother on AW since the WG controls her feedbacks/reviews and AW makes no effort to exercise quality control) as a public service.  In the former case, I always consult the WG first to make sure that she is comfortable being 'reviewed' and, if she is an indie from AW, whether I have her permission to post her mobile number - even at that, I will only use her actual AW profile name if it is straight-forward and not 'clever', thus avoiding flagging her AW profile.  Each punter is different, however, and I assume that an innocent 'are you familiar with Punternet?' might not be a bad idea - especially if you clearly have had a mutually-enjoyable session together.  I suggest that that may happen fairly often! ;)
