Deliberately unhelpful reviewAnswered
What do I do if someone deliberately left an unhelpful review on my essay? I rated them 1 star and flagged them, but what are they going to do? Because they said really rude stuff about my essay that makes me question my writing skills and submitting this essay.

Thank you for reaching out about this! I'm sorry to hear that you received an unhelpful review and we appreciate you flagging it. Users whose reviews are flagged are not notified of this, however, they are given limited access to the essay review feature to help prevent this from happening again.
We appreciate you reaching out and helping to keep our platform safe. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions.
Receiving a one-star rating on their essay will not only lower their average rating, but they will also not receive the extra 10 karma that they would have gotten for getting a five-star rating. This will hopefully incentivize them to give a better review next time. Keep in mind that there are trolls that will intentionally make life hard for people. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience, but there is nothing else you can do at the moment. Good luck, hope this helps.
