The main source of abuse that exists on dooyoo tends to be that of a few established members trying to get newbies banned from the site because they don't like them. You see, dooyoo is like a prison with inmates. There are those who have been on this site for decades and those who have just joined. Some of those who have been here for decades can be very opinionated on how the site should be run, they also tend to contribute quite a lot to the site and they tend to have a circle of many established friends.
What usually happens is the following, established member reads newbie's review. Newbie puts a lot of effort into their review trying to please everyone aiming get those crowns, everyone rates "very useful". Newbie is happy but all of a sudden the established bully comes along and gives it a "somewhat useful" rating. Newbie asks the bully what's wrong with their review and to this the bully replies "just because everyone else thinks it's very useful doesn't mean I have to". When newbie protests to this, bully invites their friends along to down rate newbie's reviews adding all kinds of meaningless comment to back it up.
Initially newbie will complain to dooyoo and dooyoo will contact the bullies but in reality dooyoo is very afraid of these people so dooyoo lets them get away with all kinds of evil behaviour. When dooyoo doesn't help, newbie feels pent up anger and decides to find one of bully's rubbish reviews, give it the rubbish rating that it deserves and before you know it newbie is being warned not to revenge rate or risk being kicked off. I've seen time and time again helpless newbies being slaughtered on this site by a bunch of bullies. Dooyoo simply doesn't have the guts to stand up to these people.
This is why people shouldn't bother writing for rates, this isn't a playground, you don't need to please anyone, just aim for the dooyoo miles, and enjoy spending your vouchers on amazon.
