There has been some discussion recently about whether or not I should be accepting money in return for reviewing a product, site, or service. One reader suggested a poll, so I'm obliging that request now. I would love to have your opinion on the matter.

I am the one the suggested the poll. So far it looks like I was wrong, most people don’t mind the paid reviews. I will shut up now …
I think it’s great that you spoke up, Dave. The blogosphere is all about conversation, and this is a conversation that probably needed to happen. So thanks!
I love having a conversation on blogs – lots of fun.
On my blog most of my visitors are my competitors and they don’t like to comment and join the conversation.
I don’t mind it when I know the reviewer’s reputation in advance. You can sorta tell who is offering a professional review vs one who is concerned only with the money. Objective reviews are hard to write, but from a purchaser’s perspective, more valuable and worthy of payment.
I trust your perspective Donna. It takes time to earn trust. On that basis, I don’t give a hoot.
