Kriss. I've been writing reviews for a mayor site in my country for 11+ years and have _never_ been approached by publishers who wants to buy anything. I can write exactly what I want at any time. There have evidently been ugly situations with some sites, but calling the industry corrupt is just not in line with my experience. I actually doubt it's worse than any other industry. There will always be some bad eggs, but most reviewers are just gamers who happens to enjoy writing.
