Review of Do you have any coping strategies for the cold, dark mornings and long winter evenings? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Being in control of your domain
Disadvantages: Why, I am only human afterall - don't put the blame on me.

My coping mechanism was knowing a membership was spending time reading my opinions, even if they weren't I convinced myself they were clicking onto my writings and agreeably nodding in appreciation of my ramblings, praps in spirit. It gave me a warm feeli ... Read review

Advantages: Looks lovely in the brochure and on the website
Disadvantages: Spoils something as important as a wedding

Abbey Wedding Venue Yeovil When I asked for this venue to be added to the Ciao! catalogue I did include the link for the location in Yeovil, Somerset, for some reason Ciao Towers have added it as London. Anyway here is my review: Location: The Abbey ... Read review

Putting the time to good use?
Review of Do you have any coping strategies for the cold, dark mornings and long winter evenings? by 2mennycds

Advantages: Good intentions, more time on my hands now
Disadvantages: Need self-discipline to keep it up!

I confess to preferring spring to autumn, by a long way. Spring promises longer days to come, and the tantalising possibility of warmer weather; autumn promises shorter days and the potential for bad weather, possibly even with disruptive or damaging res ... Read review

E rev :) by Mac83
Surprising commonalities between us here - sadly, having built a CD rack capable of holding somewwhere close to 700 CD's, Mrs R has anout 150 strewn upstairs in her workroom meaning that the others are now out of order anyway........ I keep far more control over the photographs though, catalogued (as are the CD's) but stored on two PS3's, the latter of which contains some 45,989 photographs on its 1TB memory. Even more time on our hands very soon with the passing of Ciao - just at the wroong time of year too - no gardening! R. by RICHADA

Pornography is not good for a believer

I very much doubt that watching porn inspires teenageers to try hard drugs. Of course, If you have firm evidence of this being the case, then you need to expand the review rather than making a sweeping statement. Personally I have no interest in porn whatsoever but as long as it doesn't involve kids or animals and the actors have taken part willingly, then if people over the age of 18 want to watch it, then that is up to them in my opinion. by brittle1906

Review of Do you consult online reviews before making a purchase? by Secre

Good points well made - and I would echo Richard's comments below. by torr
Several points very well made here - a crying shame that Ciao didn't ballot its members years ago on this one and sort the remuneration to match......no wonder it went pop handing out the highest revenue on stuff that people simply don't read reviews of before making purchases. Run much more intelligently, this site would still be thriving and a huge asset for the consumer at large. Shutting us down on perfectly legitimate review subjects has fatally wounded Ciao - a once great site. Having been here since 2003, you truly have done more than most of us here - I am sure very many other members join me in saluting you for that.......even if you were a school girl to start with and probably therefore in breach of the rules!

Advantages: Massages the joy of writing and assuming people read the stuff

Advantages: I've got fifty Bentleys, in the West Indies;
Disadvantages: It doesn't matter.

Advantages: Helpful in making choice , give more brief about what you have to buy
Disadvantages: I don't see any

No doubt in this 21st century nothing is new. Every item in the market is getting a tough competition but the best is sold. It is often that users prefer what other's are buying instead of using their brains. They just see the good ratings and avoid the o ... Read review
