Team 123 comes on a forum or social network and says Contest A is a great contest and fun and sign up for it. Team 456 comes on line and says the same thing about Contest B. I'm Team 789 and trying to decide whether to go to Contest A or Contest B. Only so much money and so much time. How do I decide which one to go to? Would it make a difference if I knew that Team 123 got a free entry to come on line and say all the nice things about Contest A. It might. Yes, I could spend my money, flip a coin, and pick one and if I don't like it, not go back the next year. But do I want to possibly waste my money or do I want to go by recommendation I receive on line. And do I want to know whether those are "srecommendations" or "commercials". My opinion is if you get paid for it, it's a commercial. You don't get paid for it, it's a recommendation.
