A website that's supposed to be able to sort real product reviews from fake ones.

https://reviewmeta.com

What do you think?

Heard about this on the planet money podcast. I'm just concerned that the fake reviewers will sooner or later figure out how to beat it.

This was created by a gym rat who had a web site for other gym rats to review supplements. He basically spent a lot of time sleuthing out fake reviews on his own website and eventually wrote an algorithm to do it. Seems pretty cool to me.
