I occassionally write about businesses and products in this space. When I do so, I do so because that is what I really think about them, and I think that you deserve to know. I am paid nothing for this blog and expect no business favors for my posts in it. At most, I expect people to know that I will talk about the quality of the service that I have received. There are people who hype products with their friends and neighbors, without disclosing that they are paid marketers, sometimes called buzz agents. I am not one of them.
