What is your WORST review?

I saw some fellow dev showing they worst review and some were really funny. So, I though it might be fun to share what you think is your worst/funniest review. Here is mine for Jump birdy Jump.



No worries, my game isn't boring, it does get 4.75 out of 5 other 10k reviews worldwide

Heh, the worst review(s) I've ever gotten was after a local newspaper decided to do a story on some local App Developers. After the article, I think I picked up a "hater", and he went through all my apps (free) and left negative reviews:



and other similar reviews on my other apps, which included some personal and racial attacks. It was quite bizarre actually, as it was a complete stranger.

Anyway after contacting Apple, they promptly removed the reviews for me as they deemed them inappropriate as well.

What a nice thread. The worst review for Fruity Jelly was not too long ago. An american(I assume) decided to write the most constructive and though out comment I ever saw in my life:



It was just sad to see that every time we were watching our reviews. Fortunately now it is far in the pile of reviews so we don't have to see it never again :P

Thanks for posting guys. I meant User's review in the App Store but I guess site reviews are fine too. I think it is better to have a bit of fun with those reviews than being devastated by them
