Has anyone else noticed some suspicious essay reviews lately?

I have gotten two reviews recently (on two different essays) that gave very short comments, said everything was excellent, and did not highlight anything. The most recent essay was a first draft so I am starting to think someone (or multiple someones?) are just trying to finish reviews quickly without reading the essays. Has anyone else had this problem?

So a few days I had a very unhelpful review and what I’d recommend is to screenshot and attach it on an email to support@collrgevine.com and they may/should be able to refund your karma for submission.

Also was there no highlights at all? If so that’s concerning as there should a minimum number of highlights needed before they can submit the review.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’d be more than happy to help!
