There are others that hide an agenda, or are less than honest with impressions and data. These to are easy to spot and easy to argue against. I think whats going on here is a difference on where we draw that line between the two. That's all.
Ok. So I write a speech for a politician, and it moves the world, and the world changes, and it becomes enshrined as the most influential speech in the history of the planet.
Then you write a speech, and it bores the audience who, in a fit of not understanding your motives, contemplates the lint in their navel.
We don't know from that alone that my speech was a better speech than yours was?
We are discussing reviews here. So what is a good review? For 6moons, a good review is one that makes them money (I assume visits to the site, both to view that review and to seek out future reviews, and advertisers spending money). For the company whose product is being reviewed, a good review is one that both attracts readers and causes those readers to buy the product (again, on which makes money).
For me a good review is one that imparts the information I want to know, in a manner I can act on and which turns out to cause me to make correct decisions.
Unless I'm not buying, in which case a good review is one that entertains.
You believe the audience owes you something? That explains what I've never heard of you and never read any of your writings sans some posts here.
Between less and more, when it comes to information, more is always better, always.
So when you ask whether McDonalds is to the left or right, and I give you a history of McDonald's, that's better? I suppose that means that we can tell how good a writing is by how long it is. Is that why you write "wrong" so many times? Or to be "information", but it also be new: in which case my post is better than yours.
