Epicurious Glitch

foodtrip | Dec 16, 201006:32 PM

If this subject already has a topic, please forgive, I couldn't find it.

The Buzz Box used to be one of my favorite features on Epicurious. However, in the last several months I've noticed that many, if not all, of the recipes featured on Buzz Box are there only because a single review has been repeated dozens of times. For example, a recipe might say that it has 64 reviews, when, in fact, 30 of those 'reviews' are the very same review repeated 30 times. It seems to me that this must be some kind of technical glitch and not a reviewer actually submitting their review dozens of times. I've written to Epicurious several times about this problem and have never received any kind of reply beyond boilerplate. It seems to me that they would want to fix this problem, but as far as I can tell, they're indifferent.

Am I the only one who is bothered by this?
