Ever suspect that some posts in favor of the V1 are posted by Mike Valentine or his employees?
Makes sense. Feeble minded types may read one negative post about a brand/model detector and be put off buying it.
A savvy businessman like Mike V would be aware of the damage this could do to the reputation of his excellent RLD.
Bet those short, "praiseworthy" posts about the V1 are from Cincinnati.
Beltronics and Escort probably engage in the same "boosting". Whistler too.
All such posts are plausible "bouquets" for a particular RD.
How come there are no (few?) posts lauding the performance of Cobra or RMR products? Just "thinkin'".
