I have NEVER had a company request a "good" review, ever.I have turned down stuff from vendors and manufacturer's because they wanted the caviate that I don't write anything bad, only good praise about their product. I said "Bite me, I call it as it is!" If you send me a screwed up product, or one that doesn't live up to what you wrote in your press release, I'll let everyone know. I also like to call companies customer service and see how they handle things when I do test a product. It's hard to get into it, and if you don't want to sing praises, a lot of companies are really hesitant to do anything.
