I'm sick and tired of dev's who not only review their own games but...

ok, so i understand a developer is trying to make extra money by giving his App 5 stars, maybe he'll ask his friends to do the same, what's pissing me off is when the developer puts down the competition and gives them a 1 star review.
Here's an example:
Developer: Mehboob Charania
This guy has two games out and has reviewed them both under Avis03, he gave his competition 1 star reviews stating that his games are much better, that's pretty shady, especially considering that his games suck major a$$.
I would rather count the wrinkles on my dogs ballz then play his CurveBallz game.
The game is free now, please download and give bad rating.

Another developer is Tintash, this clown has at LEAST 3 accounts, all 3 accounts gave 5 star ratings for all his games.

I hate this behavior too. But that doesn't make it right to encourage people to download certain apps just to give them bad reviews. Stay honest. It's not worth dropping to their level, and it definitely takes away from your own credibility.

If what you say is true, then like HJJ said, there's no point in stooping down to that level yourself. Just ignore it.

And prejudice. Between this and calling his mom a fat-behind, KrazyRussian has lost all credibility with me.
