Submission + - Benchmark Reviews Caught Red Handed Over 'Review' (podgamer.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Benchmark Reviews were thoroughly caught out recently when it turned out that a 'review' for a $1300 office chair was a near bare-faced reproduction of a number of press releases provided by the manufacturer. Forum goers investigated the strange wording of the review and laid their findings bare. When an investigative journalist e-mailed Benchmark Reviews asking for citations of studies mentioned in the review, what was their response? Dig up the personal details of the journalist, including address and phone number, and post them publicly online in a "Hall of Shame".
