Google is actively filtering out positive reviews for my app
I decided to post these beautiful reviews to show my gratitude to all the kind users who put so much love into writing these. It is a shame Google throws out their opinion 🙁 Is this a free speech issue?
Play Console notifies me when a new review is posted, but by the time I tap on the notification to respond the the kind review, the review has already been removed from the system. These reviews mostly come from users, who are happy with my quick responses to their emails, or features I made on their suggestions.
I contacted Google about this several times, but there seems to be nothing we can do about this. They say: “Our systems use sophisticated algorithms to detect and remove any ratings or reviews which may violate the policy” It seems positive reviews are against their policies. Anonymous 1-star ratings without reviews don’t seem to bother these “sophisticated algorithms” 🙁
